    Question: How can my player edit his character sheet with me offline?

    As title says: My player needs to tweak his character sheet a little. Is there any way he can edit his character without the need for me to open the campaign session?

    Not really.
    He can import an exported character (right click on charsheet -> export) into his own Fantasy Grounds campaign, even as demo user. He can change his sheet there afaik but of course only with what modules & co. he has. Then export and import back into your campaign.

    What I do personally:
    I open my table some minutes before we beign to play so anyone can manage his/her charsheet and ask questions. Apart from that I can always boot up the campaign if someone wants to change somehting or wants me to change somehting.
    Specs: Ryzen 3700x, 32 GB 3200 MHz, Sapphire Pulse 5700 XT 8 GB
    DMing atm: Savage Tide 3.5
    Tip of the day: Take a deep breath, think and then write.

    Ok. I do the same. I open the session and go do something else while he edits his character.

    Thank you.

    One clarification, I don't believe you have to export in FGU. You always have a local copy of your character from all your campaigns, you just need to import it into the current campaign. Plase correct me if I'm wrong, but this is my understanding.

    The player can import the character into a local campaign, make changes and then when they join the GMs campaign import the new character (this will create a new version of the PC, not overwriting the original).

    This is correct. But if he edits elsewere there will be 2 copies of the same character
