That's so good to hear, thank you! :) 
When using the shaped sheet to drag out creatures from the MM(such as "Archmage") none of the spells are populated.

Archmage - the Monster Manual is designed for the official 5E OGL sheet only. We do not offer support on community sheets.
Trivia said: Archmage - the Monster Manual is designed for the official 5E OGL sheet only. We do not offer support on community sheets. As far as I'm aware, the OGL sheet doesn't populate the spells either. Permafrost said: When using the shaped sheet to drag out creatures from the MM(such as "Archmage") none of the spells are populated. As you are a Pro subscriber Permafrost, if you install the API Shaped Script (url below for the latest version), you can use the&nbsp;!shaped-expand-spells command on a token that you've dragged from the Compendium in order for the spells to populate.

DM-Dave said: Edit------------- 5 hours later..... Found the Issue! Game setting -&nbsp;Use window popouts for characters Chrome was blocking the pop outs for "some" windows and if it did resulted in the issue... Added roll20.net to allow popups Fixed Thank you Dave!&nbsp; I started having similar issues and this was the root cause.&nbsp; I had just enabled "Use Window popouts for characters" but did not put them together until I saw this. Updated and it works again.

I don't think this is necessarily a bug but more of an oversight and if anyone has brought it up then I've missed it? When trying to pull monsters by CR in the compendium asking for CR1 monsters pulls CR 1, 1/2, 1/4 etc etc. This is super annoying when there are already options there for the fraction CRs. I don't really want to be looking for CR4 creatures and have to wade through a ton of CR 1/4.

The Brown Bear entry doesnt seem to have an NPC sheet that pops up after the token is dragged to the grid. Only the MM info is available.&nbsp;
The Chain Devil shows up as CR 11 when it should be CR 8.

When I search for creatures in the compendium, many are coming up twice. It's not a big deal as they all seem to be there and I can still drag and drop them into the game.

Kirsty - This is a known issue. You're currently seeing both the MM and SRD, but the SRD version is being overwritten by the MM version. Thank you for the report!
Same here. Nice to know that the Roll20 team is working in this bug. Kirsty said: When I search for creatures in the compendium, many are coming up twice. It's not a big deal as they all seem to be there and I can still drag and drop them into the game.

I am running into a small issue with some of the monsters from the Monster Manual. Some work perfectly fine, but for example when I open the "Cultist" from the compendium and see this: <a href="https://gyazo.com/8e54c522c274fbedbec10c6cf6214e5e" rel="nofollow">https://gyazo.com/8e54c522c274fbedbec10c6cf6214e5e</a> &nbsp;I then try to open the sheet and this is the sheet when i try to look and roll from the cultist from the MM &nbsp;<a href="https://gyazo.com/f75635790a1d3b9bb8445c06480a50bb" rel="nofollow">https://gyazo.com/f75635790a1d3b9bb8445c06480a50bb</a> &nbsp;. I dont know if this is a known bug or if its something on my end but the only new thing I have done is purchased a subscription here.

Jon D. - The Monster Manual is designed for the Official 5E OGL sheet, it looks like you are using the 5E Shaped Sheet. You will need to post any issues in that forum, as we are unable to assist with community sheets.&nbsp;

Hi Jon, There is currently an issue with the Shaped Sheet dragging from the Compendium. The workaround for the moment is to create the creature as you have done, switch to NPC, and then drag the creature onto the open sheet as a drag and drop. That will fill in all fields properly. (Sorry for the momentary derail Trivia, but I thought Jon might see his answer here. Delete this if you feel it's needed.)

After monkeying with monsters a bit (making a Orc War Chief a Spell Caster), it will not let me whisper its spells... or rather its one spell I gave it: Thunderwave.

@KeithCurtis Thanks for the note about drag n drop being broken for MM and Shaped sheet. That was really messing up my game. I hope they fix it soon. Instant dragging and support for Shaped Sheet were my criteria for buying the MM in the first place.

The NPC Character sheets (5e OGL) are not populating with compendium data properly with some actions. See the scorpion's "Sting" for example.&nbsp;

Hi Joe, The request to try another browser is not an attempt to get you to use another browser as a fix for the problem. But it is a valuable tool in diagnosing. For example, it if works in Firefox but not in Chrome, they know that the problem likely lies in a Chrome setting or extension. If it fails in both browsers, the problem is probably not browser dependent, and the devs can concentrate on other solutions.

Thank you for that information :) After having a chance to look at your game I think I have pinpointed the problem (Crombir this may also apply to you). I noticed that you already have a "Giant Badger" entry within your journal as a druid form with custom artwork. This will typically interfere with the drag and drop functionality since it thinks the entry already exists within the game. If you change the name of the druid form to something along the lines of "Giant Badger (Druid)" and attempt to drag and drop again does that work for you?

I seem to be having trouble with the monsters in my game. If I import a monster like usual by dragging and dropping, it opens a character sheet (not NPC). When I then re-drag the monster into the sheet it populates, but without spells for soellcasting monsters. For example, I add a hag. It opens as a blank character sheet, which I then have to change to an NPC sheet. When I drag the Hag token into this sheet, it makes an NPC with the correct stats, but the spell list is blank. Anyone else experiencing this? This is for the OGL sheet by the way, not shaped.

Some monsters, from Monsters Manual, are not populate correctly, where the function drag and drop doesn't work. They don't have a npc sheet and do not generate a journal's entry, neither have the token working. See the example bellow: I'm using the OGL sheet, and some monsters work. I notice this problem on the monsters: - Pixie - Tiger - Giant Constrictor Snake - Giant Elk - Giant Spider

Kiester said: Drag and drop feature for the Cultist entry does not bring token over, but rather a blank image token. I am not sure if this is a known issue or not. Thank you. It's possible you dragged it over previously and somehow deleted the token art or unhooked it from the sheet. A subsequent drag from the MM would bring in a generic token (i.e. you'd get your journal version). If you delete the entry for Cultist from your journal tab, and drag in a fresh copy, it should come in intact.
