    Hmm... Looking at the revision history on Scorpius. It looks like it highlights cells that have changed, but can you get it to show you the both the old value and the new value? I'm not seeing how.

    The way I understand it is, when you select a version you see exactly what the sheet looked like then, except it is in grayscale and the changes made between this version, and the next earliest version is highlighted in yellow.

    So Scorpius has most of his powers filled in now, but if you select a version from two days ago, his power fields will be blank.

    You cannot see two versions next to each other without opening a new web browser window.

    The way to see what was changed in the highlighted area specifically would to select the next earliest version of the document.


    At least that's the only way I know how to do it, but obviously, I learned allot of this very recently and I would be willing to a bet a creative person might find something I missed.

    Nice work! I was about to suggest something similar. I think it's more handy, quick and practical to have the sheets like that instead of using the wiki.

    Congratulations for a good work, I'll try to load Sheng and Mri'Thas there.

    I redid the sheet entirely save for the math part at the end. It is less prescripted than the L4W sheet: It just has a place for a person to enter in all the data and add "Corollaries" such as secondary attacks, summoning info, etc.

    As for Monk powers, I copied some bits here and there. Worked well enough, though the interface leaves something to be desired.

    I agree with that. I think it's quite clear what we're doing with the product is not what it was designed to do.

    I do, however, think this is the least worst option at this time.

    Its good for math, for sure. I still like the short summary of the LEB sheet even with its edit issues.

    Yeah, it's definitely not pretty to look at. (Unless you're in love with cells and numbers )

    But, it solves a number of issues, such as hosting. The sheet looks solid. The only thing I noticed is something you mentioned already - inserting new power blocks sometimes messes up the reference for the level bonus.

    All in all, I like it. Good work, Scorpius

    A second tab could be added that would include examples of all of these so called "interesting new power blocks" (such as for summoning, monks, etc). This way we could copy/paste from the second tab to the first tab and not have to junk up EVERYONE's sheet with these examples? Just a suggestion.

    Sure. Or we could even keep a separate sheet of them so we're not updating the default sheet everytime someone thinks of something clever.
