I found a little time to start writing articles about how to use the Hero Lab editor. I'll link to each article from this thread as I write them.

thats VERY helpful. I've also been hoping to find a very basic api/structure format. For example, how do i find out what all the standard fields are?

where is hit points saved under, vs str, vs movement, etc...

(im speaking in generalities, i know where hit points, strength, are)

does such a thing exist anywhere?

Thanks again!

Develop menu...Floating Info Windows or right-click individual items and choose "Show debug tags/fields/tasks for XXXXX"

(You'll need to turn on "Enable Data File Debugging" at the top of the Develop menu first).

I'm trying to figure out how to write a script to add a +3 dex bonus to some armor when the character wearing the armor is not dual wielding. I have the general idea but I don't know how to specify the weapons being wielded. I didn't see it covered in the tutorials that Mathias had up there and i was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanx

So while in Pathfinder I go to "Tools>Launch Editor," and I get a message that states:

<quote>To start editing a new file, click on the "File" menu and select "New Data File".</quote> there is

However, when I go to the "File" menu, there is no "New Data File" option. I am running Hero Lab v4.2 with the latest version of the Pathfinder files.

Thanks in advance,
Tim

P.S. Is a "Editing Hero Lab for Pathfinder 101" or some really basic getting started threads? My search-fu is returning nothing.

The New Data File should be under File in the new editor window.

Hi there I'm trying to create a new race with spellcasting abilities, but when using the race in hero lab, it doesnt increase caster level with levels in a standard class, could someone advise me as to a script or other such to remedy the problem

Saw a thread from Feb 2014, resurrecting in hope of a different answer:

Is it possible to create a new Race Type to allow for visual categorization of custom races during character creation, or failing that any other way to set them apart from similar stock races? E.g. stock races in custom campaign may have different features (languages, etc.)

Or, how would I go about adding new features and disabling some on the stock races which, for me, would accomplish the same desired outcome?

Edit: Just realized I posted this in wrong topic. Apologies.
