Is there anyway we can get an improved character sheet? I find the sheet to be terrible. It doesnít print the actual ability scores but only the bonus (and sometimes, itís important to know the score itself.). And thatís just one example. The layout is crude, and is essentially the same sheet as the basic one in HL Classic. And it just looks horrible. HLO is a long way from HLC - I would expect it could have a better character sheet.

Is there a way to get an output similar to the actual PF2 character sheet? Is it possible to allow people to design their own sheets, like they could for HL Classic for pathfinder?

I canít always play using the tool online, so I always make sure to have a physical printout of the sheet, but itís honestly not helpful to me.

Now that character data can be exported in JSON format, there's nothing stopping someone from writing an application to take a character's data file and generate a custom character sheet.

I hope that someone does - thatís well beyond any technical skill that I have.

They're in a box on the right of the bonuses, in small print. I can't recall ever needing them during a play session of PF2, but I hadn't played a ton before the pandemic restrictions. (IIRC, my highest character is 3rd level.)

Anyway, I'm sure some folks will put together a character sheet that you like better before too long.

They had a pretty great character sheet output for Starfinder at the start, but at some point I guess someone was belly aching about wanting something more like the HLC sheet and so they got rid of their handy printout which was customizable and modular.
