I love the overall design of this character sheet, but for as extensive as some characters for this game can be, I feel like it may not have enough room for features. Another custom sheet I've seen had a fifth page that was dedicated to features & traits

Thank you for the kind words and your suggestion.
There’s a lot of new fun stuff added to A5E. To detail all of it would require six or seven pages I think! Not because this stuff is complicated, but because there’s a lot of it. So my goal is to make a way to reference what your character has - Then look it up. Like the spells page!
So what I will do is I will modify the features area with six or seven longer areas for favorites, and the rest a short line with the page number for reference(as I have done in Maneuvers and “knacks”). Let’s give this a try. It’s working everywhere else.

I just make my sheets on Word. They're not as pretty as real sheets, but they manage to get everything on 1-2 pages.

I updated the Fill and print CS with more spaces for FEATURES. My thoughts are that ALL classes in LUA5 have many detailed (NOT complicated) features/abilities like spell casters have spells. These character sheets (CS) are made for noting the name of the feature/ability and then you reference the rules. If there is a use for this let me know. Also, the FILL CS is great with the LUA5e PDfs and a tablet.

@gamemasterbob I noticed an error on the fillable sheet. Under Features and Traits, the box for the page # that's 5th down on the left is linked to the top middle box of the "Hymns - Innovations-et al" section. (see screen grab below)

There were many fields that were duplicated but I forgot to rename them. oopps! All fixed....I hope. New FILL file posted.

Thanks for the heads up! Keep me posted.

:)
Sorry, but I found another set of duplicated boxes (see screen shot). Also is there a way to make the the boxes where the maneuver traditions are listed scale the text size? As the are right now they can't handle too many traditions (like if you're mutliclassed).

Another improvement I'd love to see is replacing the Character Appearance text box with an image field, so that a picture can be added.

I added a larger Image box instead of just text as asked and moved "Descriptions" to the Backstory Summary field. HOWEVER, this image field does NOT work in any reader but two that I know of. Adobe Reader/DC (but NOT the browser ext. That would NOT work for me. No Ext worked for me) and in Safari for mac. No other PDf reader would work. I only have one PDF editor and that's Adobe DC pro which is where I create the PDFs. You all can experiment. If you have a fix let me know. Keep me posted.

the image box works in tracker's pdf-xchange pro

Looking at the code it's a javascript running "event.target.buttonImportIcon();" rather than a pdf form elenment & that probably accounts for the iffy level of support

@gamemasterbob I'm sooo sorry, but one of my players just told me the HD section isn't large enough, especially if you have a multiclass character with 2 different HD. Also apparently the total section for the HD only allows 1 digit.

WarDriveWorley I am sorry it took me so long to get to this. Life steps in. I made these you mentioned sections scalable now. The text will get smaller the more you enter. You know. Let me know if this helps.
You have literally nothing to apologize for. I know how life is. Thank you again for all the work you're doing.
