How to build a custom class?
I bought a copy of the Hero Lab at Gencon this weekend. I have it installed and am trying to tweak it by creating a custom character class. I have a player who has a Beguiler in my Pathfinder campaign. Beguiler is not a class in the Pathfinder system so I would like to "build" or copy the beguiler class from 3.5 rules set and make some changes to reflect the Pathfinder rules.

How do I get to the create custom class screen? Is there a way to import my created custom beguiler class to my Pathfinder licensed Hero Lab?

I think custom file creation has not yet been implemented for Pathfinder yet. It should be finished within a week or two. Once that is done it should be accessable through "Tools" -> and "Editor" if it is like the normal 3.5 data set

So, I can still create a custom class using 3.5?

Yes, but I don't know that it'll show in Pathfinder.

Under 3.5, I go to Tools Menu and choose Launch Editor. I then get a pop up menu. It advises me:

"To start editing a new file, click on the "File" menu and select "New Data File." But, I don't get that option. The only options under File menu are:

New Portfolio
Open Portfolio
Save Portfolio
Save Portfolio As

Where the heck is the Create Custom Class at tab at?

I think you may be confused about what popped up. It isn't just a message, that should be the editor program.

After Launch Editor, there should be 2 windows open now, one is the Hero Lab program, and under that "File" menu there are the options you listed, having to do with portfolios.

The other window (the one with the message you are reading saying click on New Data File) should also have 4 menues at the top "file" "view" "tools" and "help". Under this file menu you should see Data File options.

No Problem

I'm having the same questions, though in my case the difficulty isn't finding the tabs, it's not being clear on how to use them. Adding a Feat or a Spell is nice and simple, but adding in an entire Class still has me confused. I see the "class" tab, and it's clearly how one would start. But there seems like there should be more to it, and what about the "Class level" and "class special" tabs, what's the difference there?

Ah, I am learning! Learned a few things by browsing other parts of the forum, and that helped me figure some out myself, especially the "Class" tab even if I'm still not sure how some parts of it are working. Green Ronin's old "Master Class" of "Avatar" doesn't seem to be able to prompt me to learn spells of higher level than zero, even with some showing up on the drop down menu. Hmmm. I'm sure it'll come as I keep working at the puzzle, but any hints are much appreciated!
