      I'm trying this out for the first time, using the LibreOffice version (in LibreOffice). For some reason, when I try to increase the dot values, like Attributes or Abilities, it isn't showing. If I click Up four or five times, it grays out and only Down is available, so it's counting, but visually it's not showing the dots. What's going on?

      I initially hoped that this would work in Open Office, and I tried that first, and the dot counter was working there, but the references weren't. Sigh.

        Thanks for your feedback,

        Can you send me more details?
        - sheet version (v1. 04?)
        - OS (I have seen some issues with Linux and Mac)
        - libreoffice version?
        - did you save the file on disk before editing?

        And if possible could you please send me the file you edited (I'll PM my email if you want)?

          It appears to be an issue with the LibreOffice sheet. I downloaded the Excel version and opened it in LibreOffice, and it worked beautifully. This is so handy. Thank you.

            Ok, bug narrowed down, thanks a lot for your feedback.

            It seems the last (not-stable) 5.4 version of Libreoffice wipes the controls cells when you open an ods version, but NOT Libreoffice 5.3 (stable branch).

            => Workarounds :
            - Use Libreoffice 5.3.x (ods version ONLY)
            - Use Libreoffice 5.4.x (xlsx version ONLY)

            I hope they will fix that problem in the next version of Libreoffice :-/ (I'll send a bug report)

            Meanwhile v1.04a :
            - fix Hyperlink to the forum

                No problem ^^ (I might spend too much time on this...)

                For peoples who might find that interesting, please have a bug report.

                  Ok, soooo, I don't like to brag.

                  Nope.

                  At all.

                  Buuuuuuuut, > 1000 downloads just at the end of august since the first release... sooooo, I think just for this time I'll indulge myself with this little post ^______^

                  Thanks to all users :-)

                  (a new version with a few bug fixes shouldn't be very far away BTW)

                    Does your character sheet has any provisions for statting out familiars? If no, do you have/know of such a familiar character sheet? If no, could you make one? Thanks in advance (no matter what your answer and you're under no obligation to make such a sheet to appease me :-P)

                      Ohhhhhhhhh Shiny Ideas here... And to think I am currently making a BeastMaster and did not think about that...

                      Now I definitely want to make that sheet.

                      Though you're the one who gave the idea so could you help me on this? (if anyone is interested please share your thoughts as well)

                      Here are a few questions :
                      - wich size should it be? (A5? A4?)
                      - included or appart from the current sheet?
                      - what should we see on it?
                      - Quick Caracter or Attributes & Abilities? Both?
                      - Dedicated Thread ?
                      - have you seen the battle group generator? (here http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...e-nonsense-yay) would you wait for something looking like that or more like a regular Character Sheet?
                      - if you or someone else ever did a sheet for a familiar? What did it look like? (pm me a picture?)
                      - do you want to participate in the database? (tedious work...)

                        I could prob help some.

                        -I'd say A4
                        -Prob separate from the current sheet.
                        -We prob need important combat and utility stuff. Also I'd say some place for merits and any kind of special abilities conferred with Solar training. Also a running tally on xp invested in a familiar.
                        -I'd say both since you can train up individual attribute and abilities but the quick dice pools are super handy in combat and whatnot.
                        -Dedicated thread might not be a bad idea.
                        -I have not no. Maybe a mix of the two?
                        -I came to you first to see if you had done a sheet for it.
                        -I could prob contribute to DB work somewhat. I don't have a huge amount of free time but I can do some.

                            Yup

                            Though I'm currently focusing on the Familiar Generator with @armyofwhispers

                            If you want to help you are very welcome : you can send me a Calc spreadsheet with the Charms from Miracles, organised like what you can find in the Charm tab of the Advanced Character Generator and I'll add them :-) (and I'll of course add a credit for your work)
