Myself using hero lab t manage 4E d&D character sheet. only thing I am missing is a way to change height and weight measurements to metric system. so meters and KG instead of LBS and feet. Assuming this would be handy for anyone outside usa

I'm American but I can see where that would be useful for those not familiar with the old system.

Having played RPG for a long time I can work with inches, feet and pounds - but it is soo counter-intuitive. Like the English monetary systems of ages past. The baffle-factor is simply too high.

I, too, would welcome an Imperial/Metric option.

Legend has it, that the Tarrasque is a huge fighting beast, perpetually hungry.
Sleet entered History when he managed to get on the back of a Tarrasque only to be ridden out of History shortly after.

Using Realm Works, Hexographer, LibreOffice, Daz3D Studio, pen & paper for the realm World of Temeon and the system LEFD - both homebrewed.

I suspect, having worked with the 4e files quite a bit, that you'd probably have to have do an alternate of every single thing in the system that does a measurement output. The output is probably in each of the individual "things".

Ouch. That is a lot of coding.

Actually, I thought about it, and I realized I couldn't think of something that actually gave any output in anything but "squares"; do you have an example?

Too late to respond? The exmaple is in the first post - the character's height and weight are in these bizarre "pounds" and "feet" units. These are based on values from your race. That may be the only place it shows up though
