I think BG3 could benefit from something similar - seperating main and bonus action abilities, creating "folders" based on resource they consume. I think the upper half of the hotbar could be easly used for such purpose, leaving bottom one as "quickslots" for favourate items and spells.

Worst idea ever. :-/

Right now my Cleric have 10 different Level 2 spells ... i presume it would be much more in max level. :-/
Just imagining i would need to search between all of them every time i wish to use any of them ... makes me sick. :-/
Even curent system seem better, and i hate it with burning passion.

I honestly dont quite understand why so many people is against casting from spellbook, when you open it ...
Honestly i dont know what for this option to open spellbook just for single character is even there ... since the only thing you can do is: left-click implemented for memorizing, and de-memorizing spells ... and drag spells to your hotbar, wich you can easily both do with spellbook opened whole party. O_o
Simple change bind for memorizing to right-click, and add possibility to cast with left-click and voila!
You get spells UI, sorted by levels, all at once, and bindable to any button you find comfortable. O_o

But every spell level section should be also somehow sorted tho ... i would recomend at least alplabetical order as default ...
That should be ofc. done no matter what, since it really tedious to search there for anything. -_-
