I voted no. I used to use it, but I quit for multiple reasons. It's not a bad program, but at the time I was using it, (version 3.something) it had many glitches. Skills wouldn't always calculate correctly, attack bonuses would be messed up, etc.
It also took up a ton of memory and slowed down my computer.
It was just easier for me to use other methods.
Now, I'm running 5e, and I really don't need a computer to keep up with everything.
All that said, my father in law uses the latest version for his pathfinder game. He says most of the glitches have been ironed out, but that it still hogs your CPU or memory.
I still just prefer pencil & paper. Technology hates me, so I'd rather just stay in the stone age.

I've never used it...I use Redblade 3.5e for my 3.5 characters, for all editions (which I include Pathfinder RPG) I use either spreadsheets or a auto-fill .pdf that do the calculations for me (as my math sucks most days and I can't even figure out all the numbers for bonuses and the like.)

Please forgive any spelling and grammer errors, as my android touch-screen phone has no spellchecker. If I do make a grammer mistake, please let me know and I'll try to fix it.

Somehow I'm missing my Eberron stuff that the gremlins took when my laptop died over a year ago, but I shall get them buggers yet!

I did use in in the past to see what it could do, however as already noted by another the processor demand was high.

"Caring for afterwards ...? Ker repeated this without understanding.
"After action, afterwards," the dragon said. "Choose the afterwards first, then the action. Fools choose action first."
