At the end of last year, I got mad at the character sheet I had and made a new one (in this post).
But, of course, I couldn’t leave it there. I made new ones, but didn’t post them. In cleaning out stuff today, I found them, so I figure I might as well post them.
The advantage with this set has is that they bypass the character/cell limit, which is a huge problem in Excel2003 and older. They also scroll more smoothly. Before, if you filled up a cell with info, it scrolled that cell’s height, so it was really hard to see info sometimes.
So, new sheets:
Character Sheet (Excel 2007) character
Character Sheet (Excel 2003 & older) character-2
With these sheets:
– layer #1 is for overall summary information
– layer #2 adds the tables with the white cells
– layer #3 adds the beige cells, which are for more detailed information, but keep it short because there are cell text limits, plus the scrolling gets obnoxious if cells are tall
– layer #4 adds text areas for very long and detailed information, these text-boxes can be made to be 2-column if your lines are short. BUT!! notice under the text boxes are purple cells. Your text-boxes will grow to the size of the text you input, and as the text-box grows, add another row of purple cells underneath it, so text-box is always within rows of purple cells. The purple cells are important if you want the text-boxes to collapse properly. (this works better in the 2007 version than is does in the 2003 version)
– layer #5 adds instructions and hints for filling in the section.
For wallpaper and walk-on characters, just fill in layer#1. As the character grows more complex, fill in more detailed layers. Expand or contract as you desire.
