This tool can be used to create PDF writing sheets for Chinese. You enter the Chinese text that you want and then you can get custom PDF Chinese worksheets to practise your Chinese characters. The standard (basic) settings show how things can be laid out. The basic settings the characters are set to fade automatically across from strong to almost invisible across the page (later in the advanced settings you'll see this under gradual face selected). There is also pinyin above the characters in the copybook worksheets.
For the advanced Chinese worksheet tools, you can choose the size of the paper, whether it is portrait or landscape, the size of the rows, if you add titles to the page so for example My Character Sheet Number 1 etc. There is also the option to change the Chinese worksheet font, change the pinyin location, change the size of the characters. Character display means whether you just see one character individually or a word together. Ie one line of just 字 followed by 字 by 字 or one line of 字帖 followed by 字帖. You can choose how dark the characters are so that you can work out the best copy book for you. There are lots of different hanzi grid styles which you can use on the advanced systems depending on which one you are most used to. You can also change the row or column spacing.
