      downloaded 5.17.3 from Sourceforge - installed & run.

      1) Fortitude save not fixed - still shows +0 in Ability and Misc bonuses
      - ie using "Con +0" rather than "Cha +2"

      2) Melee still shows attack using "Ability +0", and "Misc +2" (ie Dex -
      uses when "has no Str score" - incorporeal)

      3) a new bug is revealed -- I whipped up a bare minimum character: Rog 5
      Shad 3.
      Now... this PC only has a base Fort/Will of +2 (+1 from Rog 5, +1 from
      Shad 3), but the Shadow Companion has a Base save of +3 -- same as the
      wild Shadow.

      a quick return to the PFRPG - and p.392 clearly states ""the shadow uses
      the shadowdancer's base attack bonus and base save bonuses".... but it
      seems that actually it has been coded in PCGen like a Familiar, and uses
      "the better of shadow and shadowdancer base save".

      To reproduce

      1. start a new PC, align TN, race any eg Human - and make dex at least 13
      2. add Rogue levels, selecting Feats Combat Reflexes, Dodge, Mobility
      along the way, select Perform (Dance) 3 and Stealth 5
      3. add 3 levels of Shadowdancer
      4. save


      1. Inventory/resources/shadow companion [>]

      look at the Dancer's base saves (Fort 2, Ref 6, Will 2) + Ability mods
      look at the Sahdow's saves - base saves are 3/6/3, actual saves Fort 3
      (3+0), Ref 8 (6+2), Will 4 (3+1)

      not using Shadow's Cha +2 bonus but using Con +0.

      this is true on Character sheet tab as both preview.htm and
      troubleshooting.htm, and on the preview tab, and in export... to PDF
      using d20\fantasy\pdf\csheet_fantasy_simple_grey.xslt
