- I have been trying to create a filter for Ars Magica 5 which will
print virtues and flaws of all characters, but ordered by the type of
V/F. For example:
Virtue, Major, General
Character 1, Virtue 1
Character 2, Virtue 2
Character 2, Virtue 3
Virtue, Minor, Supernatural
Character 1, Virtue 4
Now... I have tried calling @dest %vars% for each virtue (or flaw) a
character has, where %vars% indicated what kind it was. Unfortunately,
that results, somehow, in @dest simply not working as desired.
I'm not sure how exactly I can get around this (aside from enumerating
all possible categories and types, something I want to avoid).

- The argument for the @dest family of filter commands must be a literal.
I can't think of a way to sort these across multiple character sheets.

I’m sure this has been asked and answered, but I can’t seem to find any reference to it. Is there any way to get an HTML output that looks as sharp as the printed character sheets?
- You mean as opposed to the horrible ArsMagicaHTML.flt? The answer is yes, there is a way. I just don't know anyone who has actually done it. :-)You can just edit it. Someone who's good writing HTML could probably hack it relatively easy. I suck at diagramation and I haven't touched an HTML in a long time. I do a lot of stuff based on ArM5 filters and print templates, but HTML is just not in me. I wouldn't be too hard, just a bit time-consuming until you get the hang of it. In fact, if someone where to write the HTML and just leave the blanks for me to fill, I could do the rest very quickly.You could try printing to PDF (there are some cheap and free solutions to printing to PDF files out there -- just google for it), and stuck that in the HTML page. It ain't HTML, but it looks and it's not *too* bad on browsers.
