Awesome thanks. I also posted the issue on the github. The same problem appears to affect Druids cantrips as well.

Thanks. I've made amendments to the files. I can't upload directly to the GitHub so I've uploaded v1.3 to your issues thread. If someone could move it across to the main repo I'd be grateful. If you're on a Windows 10 PC you need to extract the folder to C:\ProgramData\Hero Lab\customoutput\5e. The dnd5einfo_5e folder will already exist so you're just copying the files over the existing ones. You may wish to back up the existing files first but you shouldn't need to.

That's awesome - thanks for the quick fix!

dpmcalister August 13th, 2018 12:02 PM

No worries, happy to help. If you have any other problems please just let me know.

Hello - I just noticed that while the cantrips do show in the spell list now - they are not included in the spell book for clerics. Please see this file as an example.

Sorry, missed the obvious when fixing the original issue. I've uploaded v1.4 to the GitHub thread.

Thermo August 27th, 2018 07:41 AM

Superb - thanks so much for the quick response.

So I realize I'm casting Resurrection on this thread, but I'm wondering if anyone is willing to do any more improvements/development on this existing custom output? I am completely useless when it comes to anything computer coding related, but I would love to see some tweaks to the existing custom sheet.

For example, as is, it prints out like ten to fifteen pages of full descriptive content for all the magic items and abilities a character has. I would love if there was a way to just toggle that? Or maybe to print them in a smaller font in a two column format so that they take up far fewer pages? Not sure how big of an ask that is, since, like I said, I have zero computer coding knowledge. Just hoping somebody among the community might be interested in helping.

Thanks!

I'll be honest, I've not looked at HeroLab for a long time. Depending on what you're looking for I could create an alternative sheet though. Is it something as simple as the first two pages and a spell sheet?

That would be absolutely awesome, and yes, the first two pages with a spell sheet would be great!

Sorry, been a bit busy recently but here's a quick and dirty first version. If you can let me know if it works for you. You just need to extract the ZIP file to your Hero Lab custom output folder (which is C:\ProgramData\Hero Lab\customoutput\5e on my PC). In Hero Lab (once installed) you would just need to select DnD5e.info Custom Output (Simple) from the custom output selection to get this one.

Absolutely zero need to apologize! I'm on your timetable. Sheet works, and looks great! Thank you so much! One small problem. When I print a character with a familiar, it prints the picture of the familiar overlapping the character's picture in the image shield. Likewise, there's not a really good separation between the familiar's sheet and the bottom of the character sheet. This might be something I can fix quickly and easily by just toggling some "print familiar" configuration, but I'll be darned if I know where that is. I've included a zipped folder with an example character sheet printout in it so you can see what I mean.

Above all, thank you!!!! Volunteering to do this is totally awesome, and I greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Thanks. I've fixed that issue (but have had to remove the shield background embellishment to the profile image until I can work out what's wrong with my CSS code). I also need to work on the hp scroll as the right of that cuts off for some reason. Hopefully the attached works for you though.

Awesome, yeah, that fixed it. Thank you much. I'm still getting weird page breaks but that's most likely due to settings on my end that I can play around with to fix. Really appreciate your willingness to work on this. Thanks again.

I've noticed them too but I'm not sure what's causing them as the CSS should be correct.

First Step
Develop Menu > Enable Datafile Debugging

Second Step
Right Click the saving throw > Show debug tags
This will show you what component the saves are handled in. They may be part of the attributes or their own component.

Right Click the saving throw > Show debug fields
Use this to figure out which field you want to output on the sheet.

Once you know these, you can study one of the existing sheets to try to figure out how to modify it for the output to show. Be prepared to spend some serious time looking at the sheet output for the 1st page of a sheet. It's not hard to figure out but you do need to invest some time into it.
