Around 30 minutes is where you point to the machine error checking I mentioned above.

Thanks again for all of your feedback. Unfortunately, I have too much other work going on in my life right now to put anymore work into this video. I did put in some of your recent feedback into my video description.

No worries... real life absolutely takes priority, and it's exactly why my scrub was delayed.  Thanks again for doing this!  :thumbsup:

Not sure if it's due to limited knowledge or limited time, but have you ever thought about setting up drop-downs for this sheet?

No... Aside from not knowing how to do them, I think the lists are too long to support them in a useful way.  What exactly did you have in mind?

Well the only issues I have with the spreadsheet it the amount of typing you have to do with it.
If each of the sections could be set with a drop-down then it would be more point and click.
Not vastly important, but just another thought to try to snag players.

When I first built the sheet Herb (the then-line developer) asked me to minimize verbatim content.  I figured drop downs would have violated that request, so didn't look into them.

Oh I figured since the other Spreadsheet had them it was OK, but since you where told by Herb not to then go with that.  :thumbsup:

Also, I am fairly far along on a complete conversion of the 3rd edition faction schools over to AToW.
Have all the Info sorted in a excel document and just have to fine tune it.
Should have this done in a day or two, and since you have done similar work before was wondering if you wanted to take a look at the results.

Absolutely!  I just did a first pass at the Faction level down in Fan Rules... Would love your take on those in light of your current work...  :)

Hey folks, just a reminder that all fan rules/fan created content needs to stay in the "Fan Rules" section. The Sarna Academy Path posts have been moved down there.

Thanks
