An autocalculating version is ready now. If you find any errors, please let me know so I can make revisions.

Glad you like it. Do I get XP?
Verys, when using long names in certain fields the font doesn't auto-resize. This would help greatly with long names like Throwing Hammer in the basic attack fields on page 1.

Haven't found anything else yet, great sheet!

Problem with healing surges

Found a minor problem with the healing surge.. you can not edit the total.

For example a dragonborn gets 1/4 of hps + Con mod to healing surge

Thanks for the feedback. I've updated the files in the OP to v1.2 for the form-fill and autofill versions.

Allanon, I've made several of the fields so the text autosizes (and multi-line for the basic attacks on page 1). I didn't make all the fields autosize so as to keep the font size more consistant. Good idea.

J. R. Scherer, I've added a field for resistances. Thanks for finding this.

Hawkwing2k5, I've adjusted the healing surge amount so you can overide the calculated value. It won't autocalculate any more afterwards, so you'll have to manually edit it when you level up. Hope this helps though.

Cheers,
Verys

I'm trying to figure out what the Ability Workspace is for. What goes in here? Your choice of two Ability Scores used most often in attacks?

Now that I've discovered Grandpa's power cards, I am wondering if what I really need most is the front page of this booklet, with perhaps a sheet behind it that has all the workspace (and which doesn't need to get printed out.) I absolutely love the way Skills are grouped with Ability Scores, and the Essentials aspects of the front, but my group doesn't need many of the internal pages, nor does it really need powers to be included.

I suppose what I want is kind of a hybrid of this sheet with those character mats people have been creating, a stripped down character sheet in landscape style intended for use with power cards, but with an autocalc feature and skills on the same page. I wish I had the time and knowhow to do this myself!

Cheers,
Cam

This is some great character sheet design. I love the first page. The left half is brilliant, and I like how there is enough room to describe things and not just name them on the right half.

There are a few idiosyncratic things though. Like I could do without most of the personality, description, and history sections, especially the lists of options for those.

I feel like the first 3 pages could be cut down to 2 that I'd actually like to print out, since I wouldn't want the workspaces at the game table. Impressive the way it can auto-fill though!

Sorry for my gripes it is Amazing work and I hope everyone checks out this no nonsense, easily printable approach!

Any plans for an update? Still loving the sheet!

No immediate plans for an update, but I'm still using it and looking for ways to improve it. It also hasn't been downloaded very much, so I'm not sure if the effort is worth it.

Cam's last suggestion kind of defeats the purpose :) I was trying to get away from power cards, and there are already a lot of sheets that are designed to use them.

For HazardCatcher's suggestion, I think it is more a sense of personal taste.

Since everyone's tastes vary, we see a plethora of character sheets. Some prefer a place for everything to be written in, some prefer a stripped down feel, some like to see all the math, some like ample free-form space to write things as they need them. Some would rather just use lined paper for the ultimate customized sheet.

A character sheet is like the gateway between the player and the character...if it doesn't work right for a particular player, its like the gate isn't open all the way to see the character on the other side.

I'm surprised it's not more popular. I've downloaded every sheet I could find online, and this one is by FAR my favorite. It's brilliant. I totally love the design.

Is the latest form-fillable version basically done, or does it still have some problems/incomplete spots?
