      Description

      To reduce the overall number of pages for a high level wizards spell book, I believe that printing it at two pages per A4 sheet, but with a slightly larger font to keep it readable, would work.
      The 'school' column could be wider, and the 'source' column could be narrower - to reduce the overall line count.
      Comp & Spell resistance columns could also be narrower to help.

      More detail:
      The 'School' column normally spans 2 or 3 (sometimes 4 - see 'Daze') lines, while the
      'Source' has a wide column and generally only takes up one - well, it does on
      mine as I've .MOD all the spells so its showing just "PHB: P.xxx" as
      appropriate, rather than the default "srd_blah.rtf".

      Could the widths of those two columns be adjusted more appropriately to show the
      'usable' content? - how many people actually care if the 'srd_blah.rtf' source
      column wraps anyway? Could it be dynamic based on the content of the column?

      If 'School' column was wider, this could condense down into just 1 or 2 lines.
      The 'Comp' and 'Spell Resistance' columns could be narrower to help make room?

      All that could save a fair few lines over a full spell book, which is becoming
      quite a book to print out at each level up !

        Is this still valid with the new condensed spell sheet?

        Nope, no longer valid, the condensed sheets (once renamed/standardised) will do the job nicely
