Is there any hope for a checkbox system, instead of radio, to let us pick what we want all printed into the PDF? I would think the order is pretty straight forward, sheet, gear, spells(full or summary) and then journal if all selected.
Their are several different free apps around but I use PrimoPDF. This installs a very small printer on your computer and anything you print to it turns into a PDF document.

Better yet when it asks you where to save the PDF if you pick an existing pdf document it asks if you want to append to the document. That should save you a few steps.

This also means you can create PDF's of AncientOnes or one of the other Custom Character sheets that are around.

An advantage for the checkbox method that Soulkeeper requested would be to have the truncated descriptions and such removed from the combined output. After all, if you go for the abilities & gear in addition to the basic PC sheet, then the partials on the PC sheet could just go away....

I'm new to Hero Lab, and I am sure many of these suggestions have been heard. I write and test software for a living, so I thought I would compile a list of things I think could be improved. There may already be ways to implement some of my ideas that I haven't found yet. I only own the Pathfinder game data files.

1. When adding spells to a character it would be nice to filter on level. I tried typing 1 in Search and it did not filter. As an expansion on this idea, it would be nice to be able to filter by school or domain.

2. When presented with a list (like spells or equipment) I would like to be able to type and have the list scroll to the first item that matches the letters I type. The ways to navigate a list that I am aware of are Search and using the scroll bar.

3. The list for importing a stock hero is overwhelming for a new user. I would like to be able to filter it so only Bestiary monsters appear. It is not obvious which names in the list are from the Bestiaries. I found them through exploration.

4. When importing a stock hero, it would be nice to be able to navigate back. This is the scenario: I select import stock hero. I navigate to the wrong source. I cancel. I would like to be at the list of sources. Instead I have to select import stock hero again.

5. When selecting from a list (like spells or equipment) I would like the stylus to start in the Search bar when the list window is opened. This may be less useful if idea #2 is implemented, but as is, 90% of the time I open one of these lists I search.

6. I would like a way to print all the spells my character has access to. That could be my arcane spell book, or the entire list of divine spells available to my character.

Thanks for listening.

Is there a way in the combat tracker to roll a Perception check for the entire party? That would also be nice.

Not sure if it's been mentioned/asked for before or not, but I would like the option to delete/drop the "Free Clothing" in the Gear tab. Or a "None" option on the drop down list for it.

Wruin - Don't know about all of the others, but on your first request if you type "Level: x" where x is the spell level, you'll get the list of spells of that level.

(Found this through experimentation).

Thanks. Very useful. There is that great dropdown menu for filtering though, and it is barely used.

Is your character running around nude!?!?

I do believe I have a case of the vapors! *Faints*
