As the title says, I'm new to macros and I have very little experience coding. I have been having an issue setting up a basic status report template in my game. The functionality of it is fine but I think because I'm using Giffyglyph's  D&D 5e Darker Dungeons (Character Sheet v2), I'm not getting the right keywords or something to get the formatting working.  My current macro is: /w gm &{template:default} {{name=Health Check}}  {{PC1= AC @{ PC1 |ac} - HP @{ PC1 |hp} / @{ PC1 |hp|max}}} {{ PC2 = AC @{ PC2 |ac} - HP @{ PC2 |hp} / @{ PC2 |hp|max}}} {{ PC3 = AC @{ PC3 |ac} - HP @{ PC3 |hp} / @{ PC3 |hp|max}}} {{ PC4 = AC @{ PC4 |ac} - HP @{ PC4 |hp} / @{ PC4 |hp|max}}} and, it works fine, but the formatting is all over the place and just looks ugly as heck.  Can anyone with more experience help a poor smooth brain out?

Try removing the line breaks between your double bracket items: /w gm &{template:default} {{name=Health Check}}  {{PC1= AC @{ PC1 |ac} - HP @{ PC1 |hp} / @{ PC1 |hp|max}}}  {{ PC2 = AC @{ PC2 |ac} - HP @{ PC2 |hp} / @{ PC2 |hp|max}}}  {{ PC3 = AC @{ PC3 |ac} - HP @{ PC3 |hp} / @{ PC3 |hp|max}}}  {{ PC4 = AC @{ PC4 |ac} - HP @{ PC4 |hp} / @{ PC4 |hp|max}}}

You just need to put them all on a single line: /w gm &{template:default} {{name=Health Check}} {{PC1= AC @{PC1|ac} - HP @{PC1|hp} / @{PC1|hp|max}}} {{PC2= AC @{PC2|ac} - HP @{PC2|hp} / @{PC2|hp|max}}} {{PC3= AC @{PC3|ac} - HP @{PC3|hp} / @{PC3|hp|max}}} {{PC4= AC @{PC4|ac} - HP @{PC4|hp} / @{PC4|hp|max}}}
