Can we get a PDF character sheet that is actually editiable and savable?

At least for me and everyone else in my group who has tried the two editable pdf characters sheets can not be editied and saved, can we get a PDF that can be edited and saved please? I have tried using acrobat professional to enable editing but it doesnt work on these two PDF's.

Cheers

Yes, yes you can. I have been

Yes, yes you can. I have been editing up a version myself that does some autocalculations and things, planning on posting it soon enough. It *should* be fully savable and editable. Will be ready soon enough (Next 30 minutes)

Ok, Adobe Reader sucks. I can

Ok, Adobe Reader sucks. I can remember how to make it saveable in Foxit, but cannot for the life of me remember how to do it in Reader. However, if you download http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/ the second sheet should be saveable. Plus Foxit is in general better software, its faster and much less resource hungry.

Thats the link to my updated version of one of the two that were posted on the main page. Fixed some Font Sizes, added some autocalculations. All credit for the original goes to the original author.

Sorry for having to download Foxit. But it really is a better program.

Unfortunately Foxit and Adobe

Unfortunately Foxit and Adobe handle text boxes slightly differently, so it formats the text layouts slightly off. Means that the text boxes on the second character sheet wont fit perfectly for that sheet (But they should for anyone using Adobe Pro.) Might redo it so that it looks nice in Foxit too.

Only other thing I was thinking about doing was autocalculating Initiative, but certain things modify that that don't appear on the character sheet. That and the Skill Totals, but again the calculations for that are dependant on how you put your skills into the Base column. I personally put the number of skill points I purchased into the Base column, but I suspect others do not.
