Spell Attacks and 'Trigger' Descriptions not showing basic things like "Target, Casting Time, Range, Components, the School, Duration."

Hello, This question has probably been asked multiple times but I could not find the answer by searching the forums. I like the spell attack format rather than spellcard format, so adjusted known spells for a bard. So its easier to read on the go, during combat and to speed game play. However, upon doing this I noticed that the spell attack outputs were not showing basic things like "Target, Casting Time, Range, Components, the School, Duration."  You know the very basic information you want to look at when a spell is cast.  The only thing I can think is to copy and paste from an external source into the "Spell Save Outputs Effect Form". This seems really long winded for something you'd just expect to see. Thanks if you can help with an answer to my problem and perhaps give me a solution that would be awesome !

Hi Zym! Do you not get that when you click "Show Spell Description" in the attack roll template?

This is basically what I want the output to have, and I've been copy pasting into excel and then into paint and then into imgur and then into the spell description to get this.  I just can't see why this is so long winded. The formatting of the Spell Attack looks better in design than the spell card

Ah, so when you say you " adjusted known spells for a bard", you mean you built custom macros? I.e. not just setting the spell to use one of the bult-in output options? If this is correct, can you paste the contents of a macro, or a screen shot of the spell on the character sheet in edit mode? I'm a little unclear on the details of the issue.

Are you using the standard D&D 5th Edition by Roll20 Sheet? Those roll templates look very out of date. Compare your screen shot to mine and look at the corners.

Can't really help you then, sorry. I am not terribly familiar with that sheet. You'd need to contact the author, Giffyglyph , though it doesn't look like they have been active for 2-3 years. For future reference, if you include the name of the sheet you need help with, (especially if you put it in the subject line) you are far more likely to get the attention of folks who use that sheet and are familiar with it.
