    This wiki article shows you how in detail. Digital Dave just did a video yesterday but I don't have a link to that yet.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Dave doesn't have the video up on YouTube yet... I just checked.

    When he does, it will show up here:

    Proud Ultimate License Holder as well as all WotC 5e FG content (in addition to other 5e products)
    Also have bought a lot of Savage World products as well (core / compendiums / Hellfrost)
    Central Time Zone (living in the USA, although born on the eastern shores of Canada)
    Currently Playing 5e D&D Campaigns Tomb of Annihilation and Waterdeep: Dragon Heist
    Have Played All D&D Editions except for 3/3.5/Pathfinder, and also Savage Worlds

    Where are Character sheets in phb?

    I'm still lost, where are the character sheets? The wiki wasn't clear on this.

    Let's start from the beginning;
    - Launch FG
    - Create New Campaign, select 5E D&D
    - Load your resources
    - - Library > Module
    - - - Select the sources you want to use to make the character, such as Players Handbook or 5E Basic Rules, load them
    - Click on the PC icon on the right bar
    - Click the edit icon
    - Click the green plus to create a new character

    Does that get you to the wiki entry for you?

    There are a few videos in the Wiki. This one goes through the character creation process starting from the FG launch screen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nurEMR4JJeUCreating

    The FG User Manual also has a good rundown. The manual can be found on the HELP menu of the main FG site but here's a direct link.

    The walkthrough starts on pg 53.
