Default GM Control Sheet issues

I'm having an issue viewing information that is on the GMCS. I have selected certain pieces of character information to print and it seems to be printing all of the selected info from all the characters on the same line on the GCS ON TOP of previously printed text. It's doing that for all Adv, Disadvantages, spell, etc. Also it is doing that for the text above the wound boxes on the bottom of page two. It has been driving me crazy that I can't fix it.

Usually issues like this stem from printer driver issues. First, do you have a printer driver installed (if nothing else, a virtual PDF printer is recommended)? If not try installing a virtual PDF printer driver (Bullzip is my current recommendation). If you have a printer try updating the drivers for it. If it's still giving you issues try switching Windows default printer - this is a good place to set up a virtual PDF driver, because if your actual printer driver is what's causing issues you may be able to print to PDF and then print the PDF with your printer.

Another thing to check is memory hogging programs, particularly stuff which is prone to memory leaks like torrent clients. Most of these kinds of problems seemed to clear up with Windows 7, but it's still possible that some memory hogging program is causing issues.

I tried that and it didn't work.. I'm running windows 10 perhaps I should try an older version?

This sounds very much like a printer driver issue, so if you've tried all my advice regarding printer drivers I'm at a loss at this point. GCA runs fine under Windows 10, so while it's possible that's the issue I doubt it.

One additional thought, make sure you have the latest Data Update installed on your computer.

Is there a way to get the second page of the control sheet so I can just enter character names and values for HP, FP, and Energy Reserve? I have a couple different games I currently run and only a couple of the players made characters with the GCA.
Since it doesn't print properly from my machine I would much rather enter data for that one sheet and print that one only.

You can just print page two without page one, that's a basic Windows print driver feature. If you're asking for something else I'm not sure what that is.
