Character Builder says I have too many points in stats when I roll

On a whim, I attempted to create 4e character sheets for some of my wife's favorite Balder's Gate (PC game) characters.  As I was unable to manipulate the point-buy for the then-thief-now-rogue Imoen (Str 9, Con 16, Dex 18, Int 17, Wis 11, Cha 16), I decided I'd take my chances and make a few rolls.  I came out with a very decent roll, but the "Next" button never appeared.  The "Assign Abilities" tab displayed "Too many points assigned."

 I suppose the only way to override this is to print out a blank char sheet and manually change all pertinent items after the ability scores are manually entered.

Anyone else have a beef about this?

  1. Just click on whatever tab you want to edit.  You don't slavishly have to follow the "Next" button.

  2. You can just assign whatever values you want to ability scores; you don't have to roll randomly or use point buy.  Just put your cursor in the relevant place and put whatever number you want there.
