Is there any news yet about when Starfinder Online will let me save PDFs of my characters?

Can't you use a PDF printer to do that?

I have honestly no idea what that is.

It's a program that looks like a printer to your applications but creates PDF files instead of sending the data to a physical printer. Your OS may have this ability built-in (though it may not be set up properly); if not, you can probably find a free program that will work.

A PDF printer is a printer driver that produces a PDF file as output. If you are using Windows 10, Microsoft Print to PDF is built in; if an earlier version, you can install PDF24, a free PDF package that includes a printer. I know MacOS has the capability built-in but you would have to look up how to access it.

if you are using Chrome, this should be built in

also, submit a ticket requesting it to the bug tracking/feature request system?

Hi Pooptickler,

Charlie and Parody are on the right track here, there should be a built in function on most Devices that appears in your Print Options to "Print to PDF" when you attempt to use the Print Feature, simply check the dropdown options when you click Print on the UI and you should be able to create your own Character Sheet PDF that you can take with you offline, or on a portable Device wherever you please.

If you're not seeing this option arrayed in your Browser Print Feature, I'd suggest googling "Print to PDF for -NAMEOFBROWSER-" to see about getting that configured, it should be pretty simple.

I hope this helps!
