This morning I took some time to redesign my redesigned character sheets. The main focus was to put all the skills into one vertical list while maintaining differentiation between the different skill types. Once that was done, I found I had lots of room to make four separate weapon blocks and move the armor block to the front page from the rear page. On the rear page, that left more room for a larger equipment block.

Not bad. IT still needs more sheets for talents and force powers.

@RLogue177 tramp is always speaking from the context of Korath Lorren

If you don't support the Korath use case he's going to speak up.  Never mind that Korath doesn't follow conventional wisdom in terms of build or that the perfect tool (ogg dude generator) exists (but he has a mac so he's out of luck and is looking for the next best thing)

Ah. Well, mine are simply to print out and write on them. Old school, I guess, but that's how it is.

Not quite. My only point was that there are no spaces for talents or Force powers. Even for a basic starter or knight level character, you need spaces for those, and plenty of them.

I can see that route. I can certainly work on a "page 3" of the sheet for it. At my table it's not terribly useful to have that, though, as we also have the spec sheets and the force power sheets for that.

In addition to talent summaries and force powers, what else would be useful to have?

A space for Signature Abilities. You only need two slots for that.

The "plenty of them" is supporting Korath's unconventional build.  Your definition of plenty is somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 whereas 6 is more than enough for the vast majority of characters.

Not everything revolves around Korath. Besides, I have SWSheets for his stats.

Holy moly! I'll be really impressed if any of my campaigns - at the table or pbp last long enough to end up with a character like that. Unlikely as we mix up what we play pretty regularly.

Korath was a D6 character I converted to F&D.

Would it be possible to make these searchable (CTRL+F)? Aside from being able to quickly find the sheet you're looking for, it would be nice to help find certain talents (What are all the options to up Improved Inspiring Rhetoric?) or use/boost a certain skill.

Unfortunately, that's beyond my capability. I'm basically using Photoshop to cobble together an image, smash it flat, and save it as a .pdf. 

My only goal was to create sheets to print out and use at the table.

(Also, I have no plans or desire at this time to give out my unsmashed .psd files.)

There's at least one PDF thing I know of that doesn't require a subscription, just a one-time fee, and if you can convert your doc to a PDF, you could put the frame images in the background.

You might still need to size the frames properly, but if you have the .psd files...

Spotted a Typo in the Steel Hand Adept sheet. The 20 xp Toughness Talent lists +1 Wound Threshold, when it should list +2. 

Fixed. Thanks for the heads up.

Took awhile to get around to it. Sorry about that!
