Default Phoenix.GCS - How to Get Things

I'm probably looking straight through this stuff but...

When using Phoenix.GCS, how do I:

1. Persuade the character sheet to print my character's Shield (or Shield (Buckler))-based Block value, instead of a DX-based value, in the Defenses block?

2. Print the Paper Doll image for the character (with DR values)?

Thanks!

Ah, okay - I finally found the option that turns on the paper doll. The Shield Block would still be useful, though.

The default defense values are set by GCA, not Phoenix. However, Phoenix offers an extra entry in the Defenses block which is set by Phoenix.

So, to set the default Defenses used go to:
View -> Protection (or click the Shield icon in the quickbar).
In the Protection tab, bottom left, you can select your characters Parry and Block skills.

To set the extra box offered by Phoenix go to:
Tools -> Character Sheet Options -> phoenix.gcs -> Defense Options

The first entry under Defense Options is Print the parry score of which trait... which allows you to select the extra Parry score. I usually leave this set to Auto-detected (Unarmed) which automatically picks up your best Unarmed parry, and then manually set each characters armed Parry and Block in the Protection window.

Back to:
Tools -> Character Sheet Options -> phoenix.gcs -> Defense Options
One of the options is Print damage resistance as and you select Paper-doll from the dropdown.

Remember, you will need to apply the armor in the Protection window's Apply Armor tab for the DR to show up on the paper-doll.
