Default Phoenix Form request

Is it possible to make a change to the Phoenix form that when printing/displaying the Weapon's tables, Melee and Ranged, that the User Notes print across the entire page instead of text wrapping in the name/skill box?
I have created a number of WWII characters with a various assortment of weapons and have placed some valuable information in the User Notes field. Problem is now the weapon's tables print on 2 pages instead of one, Primarily due to these notes and the fact that they print\display in such a small area. A lot of the form is now wasted.
As you can tell from my previous posts I REALLY like this form. Great job!!!!

Thanks,

Yet another request for the Scratch Pad
Part 2
I have another for the Scratch Pad. How about allowing users to have more than 1? I run many a GURPS game at cons and with friends with pregenerated PCs. I then print them out use this great Phoenix form. Sure would be nice to have Scratch Pads on different pages in different columns. Just a suggestion is all.

Thanks again,

What are your user notes? I'm curious. I GM WWII games.

My own health and family matters have been taking up my hobby time lately.

Possibly. The main issue with doing so, as I recall, is that the highlight on the damage column would overlap with the text—which I am not fond of at all.

If your players have that many notes to be taken, you're likely better off just including some ruled paper with their characters. That said, I'll think about. I cannot promise to add more blocks because, if I recall correctly, Phoenix is currently near its limit on blocks—or maybe that's no longer an issue, I can't recall.

Mostly notes on the grenades use (especially the German ones) Panzerfaust information about back blast, use of bayonets, special condition of the item, etc. Just so people do not have to look these things up every time.

OK I get it. Yeah probably would not look right at all, but if it were an option - that might work.
