Print Character Sheets


It would be really awesome if there was an option to print the character sheets.  Thanks.

    Take screenshots and crop 'em, if you're that hard up. That's about the only option you're ever going to have here - Obsidian Portal isn't intended to be a repository for printable character sheets.

    There are already a lot of places online where you can get free printable character sheets.

    I think having the code from the sheets translate into something that would print properly would be a splendid idea.

    I might be able to whip together some css to make character sheets more printer friendly so you'd need an ascendent campaign since it is custom css. If i remember correctly there already is some code to make the site in general ;more printer friendly, but in reality it makes a mess of the character sheet.

    Generally, when i want to print a webpage and make it printer friendly i use the following website to convert the page.

    I think the main challenge is you have so many different possible ways of posting a character sheet. Html character sheets are going to be very different than DST character sheets.

    I spent a lot of effort to make a "printable" css entry, for printing out 'content', not menus. It isn't perfect, and it doesn't tackle any custom CSS classes you have created, but its a far step better than OP look when you just hit print.

    /* BEGIN print styling - MUST BE AT END OF CSS*/
    @media print {
    .campaign-public-layout .top-bar,
    .campaign-public-layout .sidebar-party-members.module,
    .campaign-public-layout .stream-module-container,
    .collapsable-nav-row .front-nav-container,
    .campaign-public-layout #campaign-nav,
    .large-12 .columns,
    { display: none !important; }
    } /* END print styling */

    Yeah Bort, thanks for posting that. I'll be able to be lazy and use your code instead! :-)

    I think my preferred way of doing character sheets that are printable is to use embedded pdfs as character sheets

    A little perplexed that such a basic feature has been left off.  Would not have told my players to use OP for character sheets had I known, nothing like finding out the day of our first session.
