    My only suggestion (aside from the ones you already plan to do) would be to sort heroes alphabetically in right column.
    All hail St. Regina!

      Answer to all your suggestions:

      Import function:
      This is quite hard to realize. The ingame pick screen allows you to place the heroes exact by a single pixel. My tool snaps the heroes to its predefined grid. It will be hard for the tool to determine which position from an ingame edited layout can be translated to which position in my tool.

      More resolutions:
      This is definitely the very next feature that must be implemented. I know that the restriction to 1920x1080 is a pain for many users (well, all with another resolution).

      Sort alphabetical:
      The heroes will definitely get sorted. I plan to place the heroes at the bottom under the pick screen inside a table. You can then choose how the rows/columns shall be sorted. Possible options are: Attack range, role (carry, ganker...), primary attribute. Also, with this you will be able to see all heroes at once.

      EDIT:

      I was just tinkering around with all the possible resolutions ingame and found that the tool works right now not only for 1920x1080 resolution, but for all resolutions with 16:9 aspect ratio. This means that I do not need to implement all possible resolutions, but rather only all possible aspect ratios which are only 3 in total.
      Well, Valve thinks there only 3 aspect ratios and they added 1280x1024 to the 4:3 list, although 1280x1024 is 5:4 aspect ratio. Maybe I will stick to that and take 1280x1024 as 4:3 too, to minimize confusion with all these numbers...

      In other words: The tool just got a feature update without doing anything :-D

        Is there anyway to find out what the link is to my hero picker? I saved the file but I do not have the URL saved that corresponds to it.

          I think if oyu didn't save it its gone =(

          But this reminds me on a good suggestion.
          The Export Funktion should post the URL at the end of the exported file (without taking any effect for Dota). Do oyu understand what I mean? I think this should be possible.

                  Unfortunately, this is mostly the same thing as importing layouts done with the ingame editor.
                  But I think (have to test it) Dota 2 allows comments in the txt-file. I will add a header to that file thats shows, that it was generated by my tool and that header will also include the direct link to the layout. I put that on "to do".

                        Great keep up the great work! My OCD thanks you

                        NOTE: is there any online editor for the suggested item builds? I have never used the feature because you need to be in game to do it.

                              Quick Update:
                              While I'm still working on a big update for all the resolutions and browsers, I just added Wisp and Luna for your convenience.

                              You should update your layouts because Dota 2 handles the non-placed heroes differently after the update: All Heroes that are not present in the Layout will be placed in the top left corner of the pickscreen ontop of you layout. This may result in Heroes in your layout being unpickable, because they are obstructed by automatically placed heroes.

                                Another quick update:

                                As I am currently deep into Javascript to make things fancy, I just added Disruptor and Undying to the current version of the tool.

                                Enjoy!
