    D&D 5e: Reorder class levels?

    Forgive me. I'm new.

    Using D&D 5e (after purchasing the PHB), I've managed to muddle through and build up a character: Paladin/5, Warlock/1. His CON is 12, so he should have 45 hits points, however it shows as only 44.

    It is as if I added the Warlock class first and then the 5 Paladin levels. And maybe I did. (I can't remember).

    However, I can't for the life of me figure out how to correct this.

    Can someone help?

    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums

    Rebuild the character. It will be faster than messing with trying to remove and re-add classes and levels (whcih is a manual process, FG will not remove abilities previously granted).

    You are correct in that if you added the 5 Paladin levels first and then 1 of Warlock you get 45 hit points. Adding Warlock and then Paladin gives you 44. No need to rebuild the class however just change the 44 to 45 in the character sheet.
    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/

    OK. Sounds simple. How do I do that? I tried clicking every which way on the hit point field and can't figure out how to edit it...

    OK. Nevermind. I figured it out. Just clicking on the field allows me to type a new number in.

    I was thrown off by the fact that there is no visible indication that the field can be edited. (But don't get me started on the FG UI. I'm liable to get all ranty! :-)

    Dont fight it, go with the UI and after a short while you will very likely find it very straight forward.

    Any powerful program will have a learning curve.
    DMing since 1979. Ultimate License holder.

    Currently GMing:
    * Yggsburgh and Castle Zagyg - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Mon/Fri - on hiatus)
    * Temple of Elemental Evil - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Thursday - on hiatus)
    * 2e Greyhawk (Wednesday)

    Thanks for 7+ years of gaming via FG my friends (2e / 3.5e / Rolemaster Classic / Castles & Crusades / Pathfinder / Savage Worlds / 5e).

    There/Their/They're are all different words and do not mean the same thing.

    It's not just hit points that will be off though, but also saving throw proficiences and possibly armor proficiences, my recommendation would be to start again, It doesn't take too long to recreate a character sheet

    In fact for 5E it takes 5 seconds if you create it with DnD Beyond and another 5 seconds importing it to Fantasy Grounds.
