Calliban said: Jerry F. said: If you are using the shaped-script, I would suggest only having prepared spells on your sheet. It speeds it up not having extra spells. Later levels you can quickly approach the max your should have with only prepared spells, then having not prepared on the sheet just slows the whole thing down. Yeah, I get the "Over the limit" announcement a lot, we are level 17th now, three full and two partial spellcasters on the party. I do use the shaped script, but I still haven't found a way to allow my players to handle spellbooks, i.e. adding and removing spells and remembering which spells they actually know. Is there a Grimoire api script somewhere? If it were me I would put into the editable section of the character handout, not the character sheet itself but the handout, their spells known. This way it is separate from their character sheet proper. Then since the companion script listing of spells by class/level has been corrected I would use !shaped-spells. This way the player could add/remove spells from their character sheet so that only those spells available to cast would be on their character sheet.

That's kind of what the macro linked above does. It allows you to easily create a subset of spells that you can load singly or in groups. It's most useful for Wizards of course, who choose their spells from a smaller set than "all spells". But it also works well for people who like to have standard groups of spells to prepare, or NPCs who don't need to have all of their spells expanded all the time. Basically, instead of keeping all those spells on the sheet, you just store a list of spell names , that can can expand into full spells at the push of a button, or be completely removed at the push of another.

It is likely they have a browser extension blocking images. Have them try another browser where they don't have extensions. Assuming that works they need to turn off some extensions. The images are just coming from imgur and one other source that doesn't compress images.

Is there a way to set attack rolls to be rolled to gm and the damage to be rolled public? I have a campaign being run where many things are being rolled in private so that metagaming is at a minimum (ex, privately rolled attack roll that misses, a war cleric would not know if it was a nat 1 hit or not to use their class feature for +10 to hit). Are there any options for doing that?

You can choose to have the damage not show until manually clicked (to confirm the hit), but otherwise what you seek isn't an option built in to the sheet. Roll20's system actually doesn't support what you're after: GM only messages. The whole way to approach that is to whisper it and the person who used it would still see the whisper.
Hey Kryx, I love your sheet and have just recently discovered proficiency dice. One of my players has an issue and I was wondering if there was a way to edit the formula of  proficiency bonus. I didn't see any attributes for it and figured it must be a hidden formula? Is there a way to manually add it to an attribute and just update it each tier as the proficiency dice increase? Any help is appreciated! ~Caffy

What is the issue that your player is encountering? Can you please reproduce it on a clean character sheet and open an issue on the tracker so I can address it?
I tried changing the proficiency dice to 1d4r1.

Is there a macro or anything I can use to turn off the Rage Bonus modifier when my barbarian ends his rage? I can access the name and a couple other items using @{NAME|repeating_modifier_$0_name} but I can't find documentation on that toggle.

Ask and ye shall receive. Here is what I wrote for my player. It even puts up a little status marker to remind him it's on. This requires token-mod and ChatSetAttr to function; Rage On !setattr --sel --repeating_modifier_-Kxv0jsJJbqVj2TOmOUx_active|1 !token-mod --set statusmarkers|strong You will need to get the ID of the modifier check box, and instructions are in the&nbsp; documentation . Since there's no built-in macro for modifiers, you'll need to use the Inspector method. PM me if you need more help. Rage Off !setattr --sel --repeating_modifier_-Kxv0jsJJbqVj2TOmOUx_active|0 !token-mod --set statusmarkers|-strong

Yeah, that doesn't decrement the rage, but yes, it could certainly be done. Have fun!
1529687610
You can just add the repeating action for rage directly to that macro and it will use it. %{-KuuSFJGLE-jKunxlwzo|repeating_classfeature_-kuusrsouzgvdfz1igge_action} Click class features then click on the rage and hit up with your curser in the chat box and your will get the above. Or you can do it from Statblock too.
1529701023
So, for others who may be looking for it, here is the final StartRage macro I settled on: %{selected|repeating_classfeature_$0_action} !setattr --sel --silent --repeating_modifier_$0_active|1 !token-mod --set statusmarkers|strong I initially wanted to decrement the rage count myself but decided in the end to let the sheet do the work since it has the "use police" built in anyway. You have to modify it if Rage or the Rage Damage modifier are not the first items in those sections, but using the number system is faster to implement than looking for the ID. For completeness (is that a word?) here is the EndRage macro: !setattr --sel --silent --repeating_modifier_$0_active|0 !token-mod --set statusmarkers|-strong Thanks keithcurtis for the help! :)

For anyone who might be interested, the difference between the way we reference the modifier is the difference between a relative reference and a full ID. The relative reference is the easiest to find. Basically, Ben's macro looks at the first item in the modifiers section. If you never plan to re-order your modifiers, that will work fine. My method references the permanent ID of the modifier. It doesn't care where it sits in the list, first or last. It's a little bit more "future-proof" against tinkering. Neither approach is wrong, but that's why the difference in the code. That bit of code can be re-purposed for any modifier, by the way. My same barbarian player uses a similar macro to turn on and off his Great Weapon Master strikes. The same can easily be done for Sharpshooter. Adding the status marker is a great way to tell at a glance if the mod is active.

FYI: There have been several bugs reported over the last week. Things have been crazy lately and I won't have time to check the bugs before a short vacation starting soon. I'll do my best to look at them in the middle of July when I'm back from vacation. Thanks for opening them and thanks for your patience.
Hey Kryx, I know you are busy, but when you get time can you tell me if you expect the PHB will work with this sheet? I'm not paying $50 for books I already have, but that $20 sounds juicy. I won't buy it if it isn't compatible though.

I just bought PHB. Sadly cannot drag and drop most of new compendium stuff. Charactermancer is also not available. Please let us know if we should report new issues related to PHB.

As Kryx said a few posts above, he will be (or already is) on vacation until mid July and therefore there will mostly likely be no changes to the sheet before then. But, reporting issues with the Charactermancer and/or PHB in the Issues Tracker &nbsp;will help Kryx to know what needs work once he is back. I imagine that although Charactermancer support may take some time, Kryx will probably aim to work towards support for the PHB first, as he has done previously with other compendium updates.

Is anyone else seeing issues with Compendium drop since the most recent Roll20 update? It seems like dragging a monster direct from the compendium to the canvas no longer works properly (nothing populates). Creating a character manually and then dropping a monster from the compendium onto the sheet still works fine. I've seen this in both 18.1.9 and 18.1.11 on two different games. Hesitant to report it as a sheet bug because it seems like nothing has changed there since it worked - looks more likely to be Roll20 breaking something with the latest changes...&nbsp; but wanted to see if anyone else had noticed this as well...

To set expectations: I haven't played D&amp;D 5e for ~6 months now. I've been incredibly busy with life stuff and play other games when I do have time for gaming (both board and video). This is unlikely to change in the near future. I am committed to continue to maintain the Shaped sheet, as it is, but new feature development is likely beyond the effort that I'm willing to put in. If things can be hooked up with minimal effort then I'll pick them up, but I can't commit to large features. This process becomes complicated by the technical implementation/limitations/constantly changing API of Roll20's systems. If some other developer wants to take up the effort of the sheet then I'm happy to add them as a contributor and merge PRs/do releases with the possibility of fully handing it off, but a developer able to pick it up is maybe unlikely. If you want immediate PHB support then OGL is likely the sheet for you. I'll take a look in mid July, but depending on the size of the effort it may not be implemented on Shaped.
I understand Kryx. Given that I probably won't buy it then. I just don't like the OGL sheet. I tried it several times. This is just one man's opinion though.

Hey all, quick update on the issue I posted earlier. It would appear that this only affects people on high latency connections. If you live out in the middle of nowhere like me then you may find that compendium drag is now broken. I think it's going to need Roll20 to fix it, but I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has the problem to try and pin down exactly what circumstances trigger it.
It is broken for me as well and I live in the city with pretty good internet. When I drag monsters over nothing is converting.
Same here. Lucian's solution of dragging a compendium creature into an existing sheet works fine. :)
I can confirm that is also working for me. I created a new sheet and everything converted just fine.

Can someone please explain how to properly set up spells in the sheet for proper tracking? Maybe I'm being silly but I can't seem to set them up for proper tracking with the companion script.

Hi Guys, This may be old news to people here, but if you use the "hide" functionality of the sheet using the Stylish browser extension (as recommended by the Wiki) - and if you use Stylish in general - you may want to reconsider your choice if you care about privacy. <a href="https://robertheaton.com/2018/07/02/stylish-browser-extension-steals-your-internet-history/" rel="nofollow">https://robertheaton.com/2018/07/02/stylish-browser-extension-steals-your-internet-history/</a> There's an alternative called "Stylus" that does the same thing without the spyware. Kryx, since Mozilla (and probably Google soon enough) are now blocking Stylish for this reason, perhaps it would be better to update the wiki to recommend Stylus instead?
