Update 1/26: 5th Edition SRD Mega-Update: New Sheet, New Compendium, plus Compendium drag-and-drop integration!

Searched for death in the compendium and clicked on Combat: Instant Death and it brought up the high level Combat section. It would be more useful if it took you exactly to the subheading. Hopefully the current is not the intended function. H
Great job! I've been hungry for an online reference, this is awesome! I notice that details on the Mountain Dwarf is missing from the Dwarf sub-race section.&nbsp; <a href="https://app.roll20.net/compendium/dnd5e/Dwarf#cont" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/compendium/dnd5e/Dwarf#cont</a>... Was that because of something in the SRD, intentional, or just an oops? Thanks for the hard work.

I'm currently playing around with the new sheet in a retired campaign of mine. I like it so far, but for some reason when I add &nbsp;a weapon from the compendium to my PCs, the sheet adds the corresponding attack only&nbsp;for one of the characters. What is the auto fill feature dependant&nbsp;on?
Riley D. said: Kevin K.(Desu) said: &nbsp;Higher Spell Slot Dice, and&nbsp;Higher Spell Slot Dice or. Or if i missed that part too :P If not no worries just asking / curious / giving input. Ill work on something in the meantime. Thanks !&nbsp; There should be an attribute called "Highter Spell Slot Dice" and "Higher Spell Slot Die" for each Spell now. We're working on getting it integrated into the OGL sheet. Thanks for the response but what my question meant it may &nbsp;have been a little unclear as I&nbsp;scribbled&nbsp;it last night. To try to do a better job : I found the "content" attribute which was the main thing I was looking for, sorry for missing that at first and it does what i wanted which is give me the spell description that is in the compendium. Also the&nbsp;Higher Spell Slot Dice, and Higher Spell Slot Dice attributes work fine &nbsp;the way i coded them in my sheet aswell and had no issues with those worked on first try before i even dealt with description/ content. My question was if you'd think it would be possible to either add a new field for some thing like &nbsp;"Higher Spell Slot Description/Effect/Content" so What was written in the 3rd paragraph could go in a separate box on my char sheet for example for fireball the third paragraph is "At Higher Levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 3rd." so that can be in its own neat space vs at the bottom of description, and if that would just make things too bulky adding another attribute I get that &nbsp;it was a suggestion / question. If not though if anyone could think of a way to split the input of the text that is in the "Content" area between two text areas I had 2 ideas that didnt work so far :P but that was all. Thanks for the response and hope to hear more and things are looking great.&nbsp;

All right, here's the list of monsters/NPCs I can't get to import into a sheet correctly. Usually it's missing actions after the drag: Commoner Doppelganger Adult Blue Dragon Hawk Air Elemental Fire Elemental Ghost Giant Frog Giant Octopus Griffin Horse Kobold Gray Ooze Owl Specter Succubus/Incubus (this comes up as missing -- maybe the slash?) Swarm of Quippers Swarm of Poisonous Snakes Warhorse Wraith Hope this helps.
This is totally awesome. Transferring over characters from my old 5e game and my first issue is that I'd like to have a way to indicate which items in the "equipment" section are actually equipped or not, especially for things like shields, which a fighter may swap out to use a 2H weapon.&nbsp;
I love the updated Roll Template, much cleaner!&nbsp; I did find an issue with the Giant Rat missing data, no HP or Attack or AC when pulled from the compendium.&nbsp; Also the Chuul's attack was failing due to the grab being listed on the second damage field, moving that to the effects section fixes it.&nbsp; I am also still running into an issue when assigning a token for an NPC, the HP only fills in the max field and not in the the base field on the token. This is looking up! Thanks&nbsp;
I could not find Fire Bolt in the spell compendium, also having issues with shocking grasp it seems to roll the 2D20 for the attack roll, but it does not roll the 1D8 for the damage been trying to tweak it so it shows however, I am not having much luck with it at the moment :(&nbsp;

@ Zerodaggerz Appreciate the list! I would hold off for just a bit before doing any more digging, though, as we're about an hour away from pushing out an update that should fix at least *some* of these (hopefully all, but at least some).

This all looks great. &nbsp;When looking through the compendium, I only saw one entry under the "Backgrounds" categoy (the Acolyte). &nbsp;Is this part still a work in progress, or did the others not load correctly?

I am not sure if this question has already been asked in a different thread, and I apologize if it has been, but is there currently a way I can make use of all the features offered to me by this update while not using the Character Sheet alone, specifically ?

Four suggestions to make my life easier: 1) If the SRD creatures could come pre-loaded with a token that would be awesome. 2) If a token is connected to an NPC sheet, you should be able to double click to bring up the sheet. (Or rightclick to get it from the menu). At the moment I need to do a seperate search to find what I need which feels like double handling. 3) On tokens, have a method to preset what the bars are set as - such as hp, ac etc. Most people are likely to have standard approach so allowing them to not have to fill in the fields every time would be very handy. 4) With NPC tokens, if the bars are set as hp etc, every new NPC dragged from the list is an original, so changing bar values on one does not affect others.&nbsp; This is awesome so far. Really hoping you get a licence to do the full D&D content - I'll pay more for it.

For NPC:&nbsp; Is there a way to hide the attack description/effects and only show the attack rolls? My Players love seeing the rolls, but I want to hide some effects. For example; Giant Spider Show the attack roll but do not show the "and the target must make ....."&nbsp; (or whisper to GM) For some monsters you don't want the players to see all the effects, know the DC, when it will end, etc. There is an option to show effects only, would be great to show attack roll only also.

Mark, that is rather difficult to do via roll20. There is no permission for showing the GM certain things and the players other things. I set it up to work on the shaped sheet with some custom css via browser plugin (assuming players don't also do it). It works for me. (Though we should discuss it elsewhere to not thread cap)
1454174847
Thanks for the reply Kryx. Maybe have the sheet show attack only, desc only or both.&nbsp; All being shown (or whispered) to public or GM.
I have noticed a small issue with the sheet. Tool proficiency, passive perception and skill proficiency boxes on the core page overlap.&nbsp; Also I was wondering if the absence of most of the warlock spells and some of the monsters was a licence issue or just a work in progress thing :) Otherwise it is pretty awesome.&nbsp;

The&nbsp; Pathfinder Compendium was introduced over 5 months ago( Pathfinder Compendium Editing Live ) yet appears to have been neglected... ;-( &nbsp; Due to the excitement over the 5e Compendium and character sheet integration there are many PF users voicing their desire to have the same functionality on the Pathfinder sheet. &nbsp;Will the Pathfinder compendium be opened back up for editing since this may be an opportune time to solicit volunteers... or will it be possible for the Devs to "import" the&nbsp; Pathfinder SRD similar to the way 5e has been done? &nbsp;Thanks
First, love the update, thanks! Small thing I noticed with the new sheet: The HP clickable for NPC's (roll_npc_hpformula) doesn't have the `wtype` attribute so it's always saying global. Also, count me in for looking to help contribute to this page in the future.

Are you going to add a spot to add bonuses to saving throws? and maybe letting you make macros that tie into our attacks/spells through the feature and ability slot

Our intent is definitely to get the Pathfinder compendium to a point where it is as high-quality as the 5E one. We learned a ton importing the 5E SRD. I know when the Pathfinder compendium was released, some folks started editing things and things broke, etc. Most of those bugs should now be fixed. However, at the same time, our original idea that anyone on Roll20 would edit the Compendium seems to be pretty flawed. All we got was a lot of folks making nonsense pages, deleting pages, vandalizing pages, etc. So now we've switched a method where anyone can help, but we have to manually approve them. We'll be meeting this morning on this very topic and you can assume there will be a forum post shortly calling for volunteers and getting us organized for both the 5E and Pathfinder compendiums. With that said, in addition to allowing editing, my goal is to hopefully re-examine the Pathfinder compendium and take stock of where we are in terms of if we should scrap what we have and re-import based on what we know now from the 5E SRD. We'll provide an update on all that stuff here very shortly!

No problem! @Vince: Just familiar enough that when we say "don't include things that aren't in the SRD/released under the OGL" you know what that means and will listen to us :-) I'm sure you're more than qualified :P.
While many bugs have been addressed (and likely this one is considered lower priority), just making sure it doesn't get lost in the thread as it grows: Bug Report: Browsing to Categories:Items any item with an ' fails to load the item/page. e.g. - Alchemist's Supplies
I am also interested in helping with the SRD, however I am curious if there will be a specific queue of tasks/issues to tackle or if this is more free form finding and fixing errors.
