Just want to make another plug for an option to print background info... I still use the Background Details field to store free form notes, especially information not included in the Standard Character Sheet (I copy and paste it to another document when I print the character sheet to take to a game).

Thanks!

Because some skills with more than 5 ranks provide situational synergy bonuses, like the Use Rope synergy bonus to Climb checks made while using ropes, it'd be really handy to have this show up on the character sheet somewhere.

Right now, so far as I can tell, the info is only included in the feat description, which isn't very useful if you're playing off of the character sheet. Maybe just a small box under the list of skills that lists any situational skill synergy bonuses.

Equipment bonuses to skills might also be cool, like having Masterwork Thieve's Tools or or a Healer's Kit equipped...

This is already possible - go to File menu -> Output Portfolio Summary,
and you'll be able to save a text summary of your hero. You can also
save as a PDF if you want something to just attach to a forum post.

Hope this helps,

Whoops, that's a bug. I'll get that fixed.

This is definitely on our list. We just need to add one thing added to
the engine to support it, and then it'll be included.


Thanks,

Good idea - I'll add this to the list.

Thanks!

There are a whole bunch of things that give you conditional bonuses to
stuff - "+2 to skill X in Y situation", "+4 to AC vs giants", etc. I'd
love to start tracking all that stuff so that we can summarise it in
output and in the mouseover info for stuff, but it's going to be a
reasonable amount of work to add. It's definitely something we want to do.

Doh! I had already checked Output Portfolio Summary, but there is no scroll bar, and I didn't notice the rest of the character sheet was available... the visible window looked like a summary card in the style that RPGA folks seem fond of. Works for me, but a scroll bar would be nice.
Thanks!

Scrollbars on long edit controls are definitely on our list of things to
do. Thanks!
