Awesome!!!
I can't wait to get home and try this out. I have a game set for tomorrow, so I may try to get some characters converted before then! Thanks for you hard work, and Happy Birthday Maezar!

And happy birthday!

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Maezar,
I am inputting a charcater and found a few issues:
Feat of Dex does not load.
Weapon drop-down is not available. No drop arrow appears.

Maybe I am not seeing this correctly....

thanks!

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Hi Joseph, 
I can't reproduce either of those isses. Feat of Dex not displaying could indicate that the correct fonts are not loaded. (Check the ReadMe.) For Weapons, you'll need to select a CLASS first, but since FIGHTER defaults, it should always work to that extent.

The work here is extraordinary. I can't thank Maezar enough for his interest in my small press RPG!

Just phenomenal. Bravo sir.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

I don't get the Weapon drop-down either. And Feat of Str doesn't appear, though hovering the mouse over it shows the correct precentage. I'm using Excel 2007. Maybe that could be the problem?

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Still having the same problem with 1.06. Fonts installed. Also running 2007...

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Yes, Excel 2007 is likely the issue. The sheet was developed in 2011 and tested in 2010 and 2013. These areas must be using features not supported in the older version. Unfortunately, I don't have 2007 to test with. I'll make a note that v2010 or newer are required.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

All,

Sheet version 1.07 is on the web site. It corrects a problem with the Casting Ability of the Purloiner, and adds some buttons in the interface allowing you to easily Unprotect and Protect the sheet at will.

Unprotection is required for you to type freely into LANGUAGES, SKILLS, HAIR, and other fields which use dropdowns to make SUGGESTIONS. I'm planning a better solution for this, but it may take some time as I want to finish the SPELLS first.

I also added a note reminding you to enter EQUIPMENT weight in decimal form rather than as fractions. Fractions break the cell format when Excel falsely imagines that you are entering a date.

Finally, (embarassed,) I corrected the spelling of "Sorcerers" in the header graphic.
