  1. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll keep it in mind. I'm not sure I have the money for 10$ a month lol. I'm poor right now.
  2. I have so many things on my mind, I can't spend that time learning to do it myself lol. I don't even have money to get it made right now. I'm more in the idea phase actually.
  3. Well you know those pen and paper games like Dungeons and Dragons? You use a character sheet to input your characters stats on with a pencil. I want a program that looks like a character sheet(full color of my design of course) with text boxes where players can input data. The digital player sheet I want to make doesn't need to be an image file I just don't want game players to have to install them you know. And of course I don't want the digital player sheet to be opened with an image viewing software either.
  4. I just need an image with text boxes so user can type what they require in them. After they x out the program and re-open the text must remain until erased/backspaced. And the text boxes have to be in specific spots, but that's about it. That's all I need. Of course I would want a custom image of my making and custom box size and font style.
  5. It's an example image, you can't really place text in those fields, but that's what I want.
  6. I appreciate your answer, it was the best, even though I don't completely understand. I'm not a programmer so what I really need is to now what this process is actually called and what the end result file type I will have? Because I'm sure the document wont stay as an image document right? [/quote] An image is hardly a document. An image is static, and nonchanging. It is meant to be displayed only, or edited pixel by pixel to be displayed differently. You need more understanding of GUI elements to accomplish any sort of graphical input. You will need programming experience to use programming concepts. On top of this, it is unlikely to write a program to print formatted text fields to an image, and then write to a magic file format. You need to learn data paradigms, because most data in a program like a GUI is not read and written to files repeatedly. And, I agree with ApochPiQ. It was the simplest and fastest way to show a flaw in a statement, and is seeking clarification. If the OP means what I think he means, he is way off base. [/quote] Well I'm not a programmer and I'm not studying it either lol. Way to technical for me. The file doesn't need to be an image but it has to look like once, and the user has to be able to write text in certain fields. [/quote] Here guys, this is what I'm talking about. As you can see, there's an image with text fields. The file cannot allow text outside of the boxes. How exactly is this done?

  9. I'm pretty sure I've seen images with little fields for writing text before. I'm wondering how hard that is? Does it take very long to pull off? I'm an aspiring board game / RPG designer and I want to go completely digital so I'm going to need image files where players can input data. Could you give me some info on this? Maybe tell me where some tutorials are for this sort of thing? If I was going to pay to get a single page with say 50 different entry slots how much should that cost me? Thanks
