Yeah, I had to try a few before I got it... if you want it I can PM you a pic of it.
Ace of Aces wrote:Looks great Rebel, and done so quickly too! What program are you using to make those, Illustrator? I use Photoshop for most things I create (tokens, battle boards, etc) but none of those projects are particularly text heavy and formatting isn't an issue. Seems like Photoshop would not be the program to use for making a rules cheat sheet from my experience battling text in it :lol:
Your doc made it easier, I just had to make some texted boxes, tweak the spacing/font/size to make it fit on one page, and then add a few graphics! :D I do use Photoshop for this, Illustrator might be better for that kinda thing, but for me, I do better with something I know well! :D Once you break Photoshop in, it's not as much of the wild program! :lol: But text formatting is still a bit hard!

I think I could, you mean where a unit can shoot? (Which makes me ask, where does a Bf110C shoot?)

@Rebel

Changed OP to have the files so they are right at the top. Update it with any link changes for revised or new files there too.

We may want to look at making the rules summary more readable. I packed that document with info and you did a great job getting it into PhotoShop but I think small format changes would help.

A couple toughts on that:
Maybe change the text color of each item but leave the text after white, could even do different colors for major/minor sections, etc. Some indentation where something wraps to the next line down and for the lists. Anything that will help the eye pick up on the info being looked for.

I agree, especially, when the forum shrinks the image a bit, it's hard to find what you're looking for. I think the Color Changes are good ideas, I tried to make the headings bold, or larger, but I started running out of room, so I had to shrink the text a bit! :D If I have some time today, I'll edit the images for mistakes and clarity, so if there's anything else that needs changing, please point it out.! :D

Not sure if you noticed this earlier. I can't wait to get this printed when its done.

I suspected you had, hopefully color, bolding and some indentation will help and keep it all on one page. Tough task I know. Appreciate it, though :D

Edit: Just saw your changes, that made a big difference!

Forgot to take the cheat sheets when we played last night. Ugggg, was that ever a drag thumbing through that disorganized rule book all night. Not forgetting those again!

Thanks for putting these up. I'm just staring the game and I think this will help.
