Kyle G. said: Scott C. said: I'm confused, is your formula actually reducing down to a value in the sheet? In my experience this doesn't happen. Where are you seeing this correct damage scaling? With the formula [[floor((@{level} + 1) / 6 + 0.5)]]d10 for the damage, the inline calculation in the character sheet was displaying the proper number of d10s (see the bottom of the provided image). To follow up on this slightly, I don't think any calculation is actually being done with the inline display, it is just assuming that the inline value increments every 1st,5th,11th,and 17th level (since a lot of 5e spells work this way). Having something as simple as [[@{level}]]d6 for the damage macro will work correctly in chat but will show up inline on the character sheet as I just described. This is kind of misleading and limiting unfortunately.
Random question: So, our group uses both HeroLab and Roll20. How hard would it be to get the xml output from a HeroLab character imported into a Roll20 5e character sheet? It may be that it would be a huge task, and if so, then so it goes. But thought I'd ask.  AD

Hi, how does the LUCK checkbox on the character sheet show up when I roll a 1 or such? For example I have a rapier for my halfling rouge..  Does the UI report to me I rolled a one or does it just automatically re-roll?

It will automatically reroll it, but only once. You can hover over the result to see the reroll.

Are there any plans to implement a multi-attack functionality to the sheet? One of my players get 3-4 attacks a turn, and rolling them individually gets tedious, and eats up a bit of chat real estate.
Franky, you could make them a macro that makes the attacks for them the following (the following would make 4 of Character name's attacks with just one button click instead of four %{Character name|repeating_attack_$0_attack} %{Character name|repeating_attack_$0_attack} %{Character name|repeating_attack_$0_attack} %{Character name|repeating_attack_$0_attack}

I've used that, and it works, but takes up a lot of chat. I have several API scripts that feed info through the chat and it makes us all miss things sometimes. The lack of a multi-attack macro is my only gripe with the sheet.

Bug report from the specific use forum : Perry T. said: Couldn't find this reported as a known issue: When characters advance over the breakline to a new proficiency bonus level all current items on the sheet that incorporate the prof. bonus in their rolls (weapons for example) need to have their details expanded (click the gear) then proficiency toggled off and back on again to get the new level in the rolls. Can confirm that I'm seeing this behavior as well.
Encountered an issue today after Character creation. Sheet worked fine. Revisited a few hours later;  Proficiency bonus on Tools/Weapons/Spells set to NaN. Any idea?

However when making changes to SPELL SAVE DC MOD, the DC is adjusted accordingly. EDIT: With further testing, I still can confirm that the value in the spell sheet does not change for the global magic attack mod, but the actual rolls for the spells (such as fire bolt with a ranged spell attack roll) do update with the correct value.&nbsp;

I don't know if this a compendium bug or a sheet bug, but when I equip my glamoured studded leather armor my ac seems to be calculating as 14+dex rather than 13+dex, I've tried removing and adding the armor but no luck
looks like a compendium bug, I think the AC should be 12 and then you have the Ac +1 modifier

How do you make it display both a spell's attack result and its description? There are about a billion spells that do damage + effect, so I'm certain there must be an easy way to do this that I'm missing.

I'm having an issue where my character sheet is overlapping in one area. The passive wisdom (perception) box is hovering over my slight of hand, stealth, and survival skills partially blocking SoH and survival, and entirely blocking stealth. It's like this on every game with the srd5 sheets. Opening the sheet in a new window doesnt help, nor does maximizing the page. Anyone know any solutions?

There's no inherit method of adjusting the font size of the Text Chat. You could attempt to accomplish this by customizing the in-game CSS with the help of a third-party browser extension (e.g. Stylish). e.g. @-moz-document url-prefix("<a href="https://app.roll20.net/editor/" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/editor/</a>"), url-prefix("<a href="https://app.roll20dev.net/editor/" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20dev.net/editor/</a>") { &nbsp;&nbsp; #textchat .message { &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; font-size: 0.75em !important; &nbsp;&nbsp; } } After installing Stylish for Firefox or Chrome , save the code above as a New Style.

I'm getting an issue with the NPC stat block. It seems that the traits section is un-editable. When I drag and drop a monster from the Compendium, it doesn't add anything to the traits section, and I can't even add them in manually. I can add new sections, but can't change them, as the editing field does not pop up.

Re: hyperlinking repeating actions,&nbsp; this post from the v1.4 thread indicated using [+] to reduce the "Missing Attribute" errors, but it seems the [+] no longer works and the entire code executes right away. &nbsp;Is there a tweak for this in v1.6... or is it still working for others and not me? &nbsp;Thanks! ~~~~~~~~~~ (From the post linked above...

html encode the @ of the attribute call in your buttons to be whispered from the + api command button and I think it will work. The contents of API command buttons are resolved when you send them (including inline rolls), but you can html encode characters so that they don't get read as something to act on until you click the API command button.

There's a bug with critical damage when the roll template is set to {{disadvantage=1}}. With disadvantage, the roll template will not show critical damage if you somehow still manage to roll a critical. Reported by Boris V in&nbsp; this thread . Boris V. said: Hello people. New player. I'm using the character sheet to do most of my rolling as I'm getting used to the rest of the stuff. Learned how to use advantage/disadvantage/normal rolls, but I've noticed something. I set the "Critical Range" of my test attack to 1 for testing purposes. On "Advantage"/"Normal", there are no problems; when you score a critical, the critical damage is rolled as well as expected. But if you have "Disadvantage", but still manage to score a critical, you don't automatically roll for the critical damage roll. I've been checking DnD 5e but saw nothing related to this (disadvantage disallowing you to do the extra critical damage), so I'm thinking this is an auto-roll issue on the character sheet perhaps? Apologizes if I'm posting this in the wrong section or this isn't even related to this website at all.&nbsp;
Thanks again Scott!

Hello. Maybe some useful info, then a question. First, the supposedly useful tip. I have tested this sheet both using the integrated 5th ed OGL choice in the game settings drop down menu, and as a Custom sheet (copying HTML, CSS and using custom Translation). I've not activated the Compendium in the second case (with the Custom sheet). And I've noticed some cool secondary effects from this: - I can easily link ammos with attacks, without any bug, though I've been testing this on 4 different sheets and for days. I mean, *manually added ammos and attacks*. Yes. - Spell tracking works perfectly fine though I'm (obviously) only using manually added spells. We don't really need the Compendium, as some players from our group can't easily read English (and all have a localized PDF sourcebook aside Roll20). This could be a workaround for people who experience bugs with spell slot tracking or ammo tracking and don't use the Compendium. Then, I've got a question. "Cast with higher level". I can't get this to work as I need. First level spells with "higher level" option are always "+XdY par additional level", which is how the sheet handle this. It basically add "Higher lvl cast dmg" value for each additional level. But, as we're using both SRD and 3rd party content, high level spellcasters may use attack spells which, like "Magic Weapon" does in the SRD, use tresholds to determine the effect. While it's not a problem for spells which aren't attack (we read the description and get it), I'd like to see the proper number of "high level bonus dice" in the attack template. I've tried to write it, and I am not able to get it working, because I can't intercept the value returned by the "Which level..." popup. Do you have any workaround for this, other than "don't use the Higher level form and write an inline formula with a query into the Description"? I know I could use something like&nbsp;[[[[floor((?{In which slot level do you cast this spell?}-1)/2)]]d6]], but I'd like my players to not need to adapt this kind of formula, and to use the native Higher level system.
I can't seem to find anything about this, but does anyone know why when I drag a monster from the 5e compendium on to this sheet in npc mode the traits do not copy over, but everything else does flawlessly?

I can confirm that this is happening for all NPCs that have traits. Also tried by dropping directly onto the VTT and not into a character sheet first. Also, I did not realize that my own token defaults were used if I dropped a monster that is in my Journal from the compendium in addition to dropping from the Journal tab. Is this new or just new to me?
Having the same trait problem...
I assume this character sheet has been updated, so I have two questions: 1) Did the roll template get removed from the NPC attacks? &nbsp;It was working last night, but tonight it is not. 2) Did auto-roll damage get broken? &nbsp;Again, working just fine last night, and working today for "old" monsters I have, but not new monsters I've added. Thanks
Steve K. said: Is it doing this for all NPCs or just one in particular. What happens if you just drag and drop from the compendium direclty onto the VTT and not into a character sheet? I can drag a monster from the compendium onto the VTT and the traits do show up that way but if I drag them onto an NPC "template" I've created they do not carry over. Also if I drag a monster from the compendium and they show up but then try to overwrite them by dragging another monster onto the first, they will not carry over.
Some monsters dragged from the compendium to the character sheet that have attacks that do damage and grapple give a syntax error when you try to roll damage. Examples: Glabrezu's pincer attack and Marilith's tail attack. The reason appears to be that the grapple and grapple DC are listed on the 'On hit 2' line rather than just in the descriptive text. AD
