Welcome to the character sheet experience you have been waiting for. I have not seen any other character sheet design address the issues particular to 5E D&D, so I have done my best to work them in, in a more intuitive and efficient manner--both in sheet space economy, and in player competence at the gaming table. 

The first sheet contains all the essentials for quick-glance reference. PC stats are rearanged on the page, and most saves, skills, and other data are positioned according to the relevant ability. Actions of all types are separated into distinct columns, reducing the likelihood of forgetting that bonus action or reaction when it matters most.

Page 2 is where the player can track a character's less number-crunchy features: the background, feats, companions, and even space for detailed character art. The major improvement here is the space for equipment that also makes tracking which 3 magical items that character has attuned to that much easier. Also, the wealth area favors tracking a more condensed number value rather than exact coin volume; it is based on the gold piece (GP) standard, with decimal places to track those straggling silver and copper pieces (SP, CP).

Page 3 is specific to spellcasting in the game, which--I think we can agree--is an option in this game with very little down-side. There is space to track cantrips, even from multiclass spellcasters, and space to tally and track spell slots. This section's chief benefit is the shorthand for spell descriptions I have come up with. With this vital info already on the page, this should reduce the amount of time spent running back to the Player's Handbook or other printed materials to reference spell effects. Don't forget to reference bonus action spells (hex, hunter's mark, smite spells, etc), and reaction spells (hellish rebuke, feather fall, shield, etc.) in the appropriate column on the first page.

EXAMPLE: Fireball_VSM.150ft.8d6fire, 20ft radius, Dex save 1/2.i.+1d6fire/slot lvl.

I am passionate about this game, and I came up with this design to solve problems I was having with the standard sheets. Please give it a shot, and I don't think you will be disappointed. All feedback and contributions are appreciated. Thank you.

This person definitely did their best, and that's good. But this requires more work. For example, the skills are under their controlling attributes, which is good, but to the side, which looks bad. Good approach to how to organize the information, but [...]

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
