The tool is great! Thanks so much for making it! I'm trying out v1.13 on iOS Excel. I do get a warning that the file has macros that will not run or must be connected to the internet to work. I've checked and the file seems to work correctly after I pass the warning. Considering I plan on using my iPad at Adventure's League, it has all the details I need at my fingertips. This is a super tool.

Awesome that it works!

I played around with Excel for iPad last week, though didn't download the character generator, and seems to function very well with touch.

I get the same warning on the Preview Version for Excel (running on Windows 10) that this version doesn't support macros and whether I want to purchase office 365 (which I have). Clicking "skip/ignore" the file works very well. The preview version of Excel also function extremely well for touch - on a Surface Pro 3 the worksheets fit nicely on the screen.

It's fantastic that the touch versions of Excel are free to use

Thanks for the great feedback

Noticed that on on latest (v. 1.15) shortbow attack bonus and damage show as '#VALUE!'. Also thanks for adding Tieflings Hellish Rebuke to the spell-list, though now it's added as a level 1 spell. Players handbook dictates "[...] Once you reach 3rd level, you can cast the hellish rebuke spell once per day as a 2nd-level spell.". Also would be nice if the 'spell ability bonus' and such would be calculated. Tieflings cast using their charisma bonus.

Thanks for the feedback, issue found with shortbow and corrected for V1.16. A workaround is putting a 0 in the ammunition bonus (though the ammunition is then ammunition+0)

For Hellish Rebuke, I will keep as a 1st level spell (though a Tiefling casts it as a 2nd level spell - 3d10 fire damage) as it affects game mechanics implemented in the tool (a Warlock can cast the spell at level 1 or any higher level for example). I'm thinking to add the spell details in the Race details

I will look at adding the spell ability calc to the Race or Subrace details instead of just (Cha) for example (Is this what you mean?)

Love this sheet. Thanks for your work. The apostrophe in the language "Thieves’ Cant" should be after the s. I would love to see a Race Override entry just for purposes of printing on the character sheet. For example, for my DragonLance character I could select "Elf, Wood" for his legal statistics but then enter "Kagonesti Elf" for display purposes. I am also using your sheet for NPCs and weird ones such as Oceanus the Aquatic Elf come up. :) I gave him High Elf stats but would love if it printed "Aquatic Elf" on there. Anyway, thanks again!

Thanks for the feedback, corrected Thieves' cant and added option to RENAME (not OVERRIDE) Race, Subrace and Background in V1.17

Example of Custom Background (Sage) - Though this is exactly the same as the original Sage, for demo purposes only.
[There is an issue currently in V1.17 with the Specialty not referenced correctly]

When the Start sheet was rearranged, the text formatting for languages and tools was broken. Feat Lookup also doesn't provide the description anymore, only the prerequisite.

I think it might be an improvement to provide a list of all the Hit Dice instead of total and remaining. This is because if you multicast you can have different hit dice for each class. If the sheet is printed out, then the player could strike though them with pencil as they are used. For those that don't print it out, it could be done similarly to the Death Rolls.

Edit: The Fighting Style: Dueling isn't' adding +2 to damage rolls. Tested with Warhammer and Short Sword, both with and without a shield.

Thanks for the feedback, which version are you using? Language and Tools text formatting issue found correcting for V1.21.

Feat lookup looks to be functioning as intended, if you have more details that'd be great.

For the Hit Dice will need to think about how to implement a neat solution for tracking different HD in multiclass

This on on 1.20 since I don't see 1.21 to download yet.

Did you happen to see the edit of my last post about "Fighting Style: Dueling" not adding to damage?

What version of Excel are you using? The lookup is working fine with Excel 2013.

For Dueling style, I've added an option for dueling in the Attacks section in the Start sheet for V1.21 (probably released today)

Just a minor thing but I noticed if you used the "Attack Bonus Overrides" and lowered the bonus (because of a house rule) it also lowers the damage.

Ahh, correct. Actually now fixed in V1.21 (if you've downloaded in the last 10 min recommend to re download it again)

If you've recently downloaded V1.21 (tried to remove it quickly), recommend to download again now. There were a few major bugs found in the Attack section that are now fixed

Thanks for the shout out. I'm testing the v.1.21 right now. Quick question, is there a best practice for taking an character in an existing version and transferring it to the latest version of your file?

Best practice may be you saying, "the_eaps, I did all the hard work for you... type it in again and be grateful." :)
