How do people feel about this? I'm definitely open to it, but I wanted to give people a chance to mess about with the library before it was added to character sheet output.

Do you always want your library powers to print out? Or never? Or something in between? Please let me know so we can figure out the best way to display these in output.

Honestly, it seems like something that you'd generally do as a separate print out and relatively sparingly. I think the best would be making it a separate print-out. Another possibility is adding yet another user option to make it print out as a page after the character sheet.

Well since my posting can lead one to believe that I'm in favor of both a separate printout and always printing out let me clarify my preference: I think it should be a separate, selectable sheet the person can print in the same manner as they currently do with the Journal Contents & Player Aid Sheet.

I agree with both the guy a separate Printout from the main sheet should be the best thing.

Why not make this another option on the Configure Hero screen? That way, you could add it for those characters that use rituals/devices often and omit it for most people. The Play Aids sheet could be an option as well.

I suppose you could have it on the Configure Hero screen but why? Having it as one of the dossier choices on the print setup menu get's the job done AND it has the benefit of being where someone would expect to find such a selection.

I suppose there wouldn't be any harm in having two selections available:
'Character Sheet with Library Tab' and an option for just the Library Tab.

I like these ideas!

It sounds like a separate sheet is the way to go. Thanks for the feedback on this, guys!
