DM Whisper traits and notes about attacks and such on 5E Shaped Sheet

I like clicking on my NPCs traits and action buttons in Keithcurtis' Utility script to see the notes about how they work and what they will do, but I don't want my players to see all that info.  I just want my players to see the rolls we do during combat, but for me I would like to click on the traits and see how the acid poison works or see what the details of that manticore attack are without spilling the beans to the players. On that same vein.  I would like to be able to hide the results of some ability checks from the players.  Like when they make a stealth roll, I would like that to be unknown to them.  How would I go about doing this?? Thank you so much (please use small words and pretend I don't know a lot about computers)

Thank you so much (please use small words and pretend I don't know a lot about computers) Okay, this is how I do this: you want to go to the "hide info" box on the settings page of the sheet, and hide those things you want to hide (ability checks, freetext, content at least). Then install the Stylish extension for your browser and add this code for Roll20.net: .sheet-gm-info-block {     display: block !important; } .sheet-gm-info-inline-block {     display: inline-block !important; } .sheet-gm-info-flex {     display: flex !important; } Result: your players will not be able to see those parts of the roll template for which you have turned hiding on. (They could in theory install the same CSS to see it as well, you need to trust your players to not do that). They will still see titles of traits and such; if you don't want that, another option would be to switch whispering on and off before/after the roll. Or build your own macros(but I don't recommend that, it's too much work). EDIT: alternative would be to make a /talktomyself button that you press before inspecting any traits for yourself or rolling stuff that needs to be secret. You just need to remember to do it every time.

I use the method Jakob posted for hiding some parts of a roll template. What you are after however: If you want to output the whole thing to yourself then use one of the latest versions and take advantage of the "Output" options at the top center of the sheet - specifically self or gm.
Is there a version of companion and Shaped that are working well together that include that?  I would hate to update and then screw up my game.

The only thing lost currently is auto ammo and the ability to generate attack actions with the script. It's very minimal. Otherwise Lucian will maybe put out a release this weekend, but no promises as he's quite busy.
