I was rethinking about it, the 3rd page I was refering to would be a background, a picture of the character, his backstory, and would really be optionnal to be printed, as what you have is what is needed.

 

Good job!

Yes, I saw that, it's a great idea... As long as I can have PS to modify it! (I'm ok, my wife has it)

I've been trying to add a PC in your sheet, and I've noticed that the Available XP and Total XP textboxes are not right-aligned, the number appears on top of the text.

 

Also, I'd reduce the font size of the text in most of the textboxes, it would allow to add more text.

The font is set to autosize. So, if you keep typing the font will shrink to accomodate the text.

Updated the v4 sheet to handle some minor issues (namely the aforementioned alignment of the XP entries and the talent columns that weren't lined up fully to the table drawn beneath them).

Tried the latest version, with the results that some things work fine but a few areas have trouble. See the below picture and note the issues in the Notable Features and Specialization Trees sections, as well as the fact that my icons for the Ability and Proficiency dice are instead the letters d and c in green and yellow, respectively.

My version works fine, regarding the d and s, I get the proficiency dice, however, not all the textboxes have the auto-size font, in the Talents and Special abilities, it's not there.

I tried opening it in Adobe Reader and it works better there.

Alright, Here's The First Pass

 

Grab, use, comment.

It seems that the dice pool is using Will instead of Presence.

This seems to be an issue with multi-line text boxes. I guess I could hardcode a font size (smallest is 6), but never sure what size is best because some people will type a few words and others will want to write whole pages.

Embedded the font into the document, so it shouldn't substitute for another font now. Not sure what PDF reader that is you're showing as the buttons should fill the whole field and not just be a small green dot.

 

Uploaded them to my site.

Getting there. 

 

I'm experiencing a bug. Can you replicate on your end ?

 

The character sheet doesn't display the dice pools correctly in the weapons section. Ability dices are showing but proficiency dice are missing.

hello there. I would like to see in the skill section of the weapons without the selection item and where you can just type it into there.

I think it's something else, I've put values in all the characteristics, but I think the issue was that the refresh wasn't made after the update (like updating a value, but not leaving the textbox)

 

The Weapon section as well we had that issue, but I'm suspecting that it's the same. Here is how to reproduce the issue with the characteristics:

 

1 - Enter all the values

2 - Click on the box of a value (say Presence)

3 - Enter a new value (don't go out of the textbox yet)

4 - Click on the textbox again

5 - Click outside the textbox

 

I guess that the update is made on the "On-leave" event and it check if the "Changed" or "IsDirty" is checked, but it has been updated to false. At least, that's my guess!;)

It wouldn't be possible to know what characteristic to associate for the Dice pool.

There is no Change or "Dirty". The events possible in Acrobat are onFocus, onBlur, MouseUp, MouseDown, MouseEnter and MouseExit. So, I chose the action that would work "the best" for it. Namely onBlur (when the field loses focus).

 

If the sheet was a webpage, then I could do a lot more using jQuery/jQuery-ui, but at the cost of not controlling the layout as precisely.
