A new update of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available. This is a bugfix update - the main issues were that if you saved a portfolio on an iPad, you couldn't open that file anymore on a computer, and a display glitch on the basics summary panel.

Here's the complete change list, copied from the FAQ:

Enhancements & Changes
  • Hero Lab is now available for the iPad! The initial release of Hero Lab can be used as an electronic character sheet for Pathfinder, and we'll be adding support for full character creation and other game systems later. You can find Hero Lab in the iPad App Store, or check out our web site for screenshots and more details!
  • Moving the mouse over the CMB or CMD on the basics summary or basics tab (or tapping the CMB/CMD row on the iPad) will now show you the calculations for those values.
  • The breakdown of the AC calculations that's available by moving your mouse over the AC on the basics tab or basics summary has been improved - separating out everything that had been lumped into "Misc" into separate bonus types.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed some error messages that would appear if you loaded a character that had previously been saved by Hero Lab on the iPad.
  • Bonuses applied to all attacks were not also being added to the CMB.
  • The dashboard list of special abilities was showing Favored Class abilities which had not been chosen.
  • The Basics summary tab was sometimes placing the saves near the top, overlapping other information.
  • The worg and winter wolf had the wrong speed.
  • Robes of the archmagi weren't adding their bonus to overcome spell resistance.
  • The Phylactary of Positive Channeling was not correctly adding to Channel Energy from classes which had a choice of positive or negative channeling depending on alignment of self or god (like the cleric).
  • The Totem Spirit - Shundar-Quah (Spire Clan) feat was adding to Reflex saves, not Fortitude.
  • Svirfneblin were getting duplicated situational bonuses to stealth.
  • The crypt thing's HP was incorrect.
  • The gnome Pyromaniac alternate racial trait wasn't adding to the Primal (fire) sorcerer bloodline's abilities.
  • The Half-orc had an error with its darkvision not being applied.
  • The Huntmaster feat was not stacking correctly with Boon Companion, and required the user to activate it if they had the correct companion. It should now stack correctly, and automatically detect the companion races it applies to.
  • The Burglar general purpose training was not marked as a general purpose training, so it was charging 1 more trick than it should have. Also, it was not assigned to the Animal Archive book.
  • Animal archetypes were not valid for characters with an archetype that gave multiple animal companions/familiars.
  • Mass heal was showing as a valid 8th level spell choice for clerics and oracles.
  • The automatic languages for Nagaji, Samsaran, Tengu, and Wayang have been updated from the languages listed in Dragon Empires Gazeteer to those listed in the ARG. For each of these races, an Alternate Racial Trait has been added that will switch those languages back to the Dragon Empires version.
  • Combat Expertise was not giving a penalty to combat maneuver bonus.
iPad Changes & Bug Fixes
  • The names of weapons with long names no longer overwrite the stats for those weapons.
  • Current conditions and adjustments are now shown more prominently, just above the list of equipped items. Spell / conferred ability adjustments are now reported too.
  • Space and Reach are now listed under the race / class info button.
  • Reach, Trip, etc weapons are now indicated in the listing for equipped weapons.
  • Touch and Flat-Footed AC are now displayed beside the regular armor class.
  • The "Favorite Metamagic Spells" table for Sorcerers and other spontaneous casters now displays properly.
Data File Authoring
  • The CompBonCap field has been added to companion helpers. It works like the existing CompLevAdj, but unlike CompLevAdj, any bonuses added to CompBonCap will be capped at the character's HD. The boon companion feat has been changed to take advantage of this new mechanism, which greatly simplifies its script.

At the import stage after download was getting messages that it was corrupt and to re-download. Naturally when loading PF got a bunch of error messages. Closed out and re-downloaded which prompted the same error this time loading PF produced no errors and it says I'm version 7.10 but everything seems to working fine.

After downloading the 12 Apr 2013 (Bug fix release) I get the following error while attempting to save to D20Pro Output:

"An XML document could not be saved"

It does not matter if I select "Current Hero Only" or "Entire Portfolio" nor does it matter if I use a character from a saved file or a new character.

Found a problem:

Was playing around with Bestiary Monster Creation in the race tab to make some Outsiders for this weekend's game and found the update has messed with the racial HD for Skills and Attributes. Under the class tab it claims "too many bonuses" in red in the attribute increase box when none have been taken. In the Skills tab it sends out an alert if you spend even one racial skill point. These problems did not exist before the update.
