Losing Scrolls During Tactical Battle

When canceling

I've noticed that some of my scrolls disappear when clicked on, whether it was used or not. I'm not sure if this has already been reported, but it's an irritating bug. For instance, if I click a fireball scroll but change my mind and right-click/cancel out of it (like canceling a spell), the scroll will still disappear as if it's been used. After the tactical battle, it'll be gone as well. I've only noticed it with scrolls, but I'm now veeery carefully deciding when I want to use scrolls.

Same thing is true of other consumable items, like the Beast Collar. Not sure on healing items, though I imagine they're prone to this as well. I've had to auto-resolve a lot of combats and reload because of this one. You should be able to cancel out and still retain the item.

Quoting Lord Reliant,

Nice job making that connection.  I'd seen this behavior on the beast collar, but don't recall ever cancelling use of a scroll.

This might be related to the fact (or bug, more likely) that you can only have 3 or 4 items available for use during combat.

Sadly, the game selects which ones...

I havent been able to repro this.  For me if I click on the fireball scroll then right click to cancel I still have the scroll.  I also dont have any problem having more than 3-4 items in combat.

If anyone has a save where I can check this out or more specific steps to repro I'd love to see it.
