Feat benefits listing

Postby juza » Mon Apr 25, 2016 1:47 pm

Hello,

is it possible to have the feat's benefits "bullet-listed" (as in the manual) in the feat's description of the generated character file (pdf, html, ...).
At the moment the benefits are listed all in a row, which is not so stylish and at first sight comprehensible ... :)

Something like:

Actor
Skilled at mimicry and dramatics, you gain the following benefits:
o Increase your Charisma score by 1, to a maximum of 20
o You have advantage on Charisma (Deception) and Charisma (Perform ance) checks when trying to pass yourself off as a different person.
o You can m im ic the speech of another person or the sounds made by other creatures...

Thank you

Francesco

Somebody with better OS can chime in here, but this would be very challenging. The long descriptions are all on one line in the data and there isn't plans to break them up into paragraphs. You could check the preference that tells the OS to use the long description as opposed to the short and see if you like that better.

Today:

DESC:The beginning text.
DESC:&nl; Your text here
DESC:&nl; Your other text here

Would display as:
The beginning text.
Your text here
Your other text here

I do not believe we have that capability for the new INFO tag.

Right, but that would require ripping apart the data files.

The solution of LegacyKing is already an improvement. I just added the new line to the BENEFIT Tag instead of the DESC Tag.

Now the benefits in the exported file comes at least on new lines.

Is there a way to have the same behavior in the "Feat Info" of the "Feats Tab" in the application? Actually they are still all on a single line there also with the &nl; ...

Greetings
Francesco

The User Interface is another beast entirely. You'd have to start writing java code changes to affect that.

Now, before we request that, let's realize the Tabs in the user interface are set up to aid in the creation of a character. The Character tab which shows the final product and the export sheets are what is MOST important to display correctly.

Cheers,
Andrew
