    Easiest Way of Duplicating Trait Descriptions

    Howdy, all.

    So, I'm creating four pre-gen characters for an upcoming Old West game (in GCA, then importing into FG). I've got the first one completely finished, and he has maybe 20-25 skills. Let's say I take the time to copy and paste the skill descriptions for each of those into his FG sheet.

    Now, the other three characters will have a lot of the same skills, overlap -- Survival (Desert), Riding (Horse), that sort of thing. What is the easiest way (if any) to duplicate all that work without having to re-copy and re-paste 20+ skills for multiple characters?

    Thanks!

    Drag and drop from the one char to the others?

    Or export the character and re-import and rename.

    Edit the campaign data XML and actually copy the characters, or just the skills

    Thanks for the replies, all... I think export/import probably be easiest. Ultimately, I would love to build up a base character that has, literally, every skill (or at least all of the ones I use most frequently) with descriptions in place so I can just drag and drop what I need.

    You might see that ronnke has indicted drag and drop traits and skills are in his to-do-wish-list:

    Upcoming Features/Wishlist
    Items. Add the ability to configure items by type (General, Melee Weapon, Ranged Weapon, Armour/Shield, Vehicle/Mount, Spaceship)
    Drag n Drop weapon items to combat section of character sheet
    Drag n Drop traits, skills, spells, and other abilities character sheet

    https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...E-Core-Ruleset

    You could always add your thoughts to that thread and drop him some rep points while you are at it

    EDIT: Damnit! ronnke pretty much replied the same while I was out testing the ruleset!
