I don't believe it to be a glitch. Just because a spell has the ritual tag doesn't mean that it has to be cast as a ritual. Once you "learn" the spell, if you want to cast it as a ritual then you check the ritual box. There are reasons why a character may not want to cast a spell as a ritual: you can't upcast a ritual spell, and it takes 10 minutes instead of "1 action". And, just because a spell has the ritual tag, doesn't mean that it can be cast as a ritual. To cast a spell as a ritual, a spellcaster must have a feature that grants the ability to do so. The cleric and the druid, for example, have such a feature. Matt M. said: Yes. When dropped, the R icon shows up (indicating it is a ritual spell), but the ritual box is not checked. This is inconsistent and confusing. The R icon should match the state of the Ritual checkbox field when dropped onto the character sheet. It would argue toggled ON would be the better option, since many classes (Cleric, Druid, Wizard) have access to Ritual Spells and it changes their Prepared Spells/Spell Slots calculations. Other classes like Arcane Trickster could toggle the Ritual Off. keithcurtis said: Hmm. that's an interesting discussion to have. It might come down to individual play preferences, whether ritual should be the default, or an option. Or are you saying that the ritual marker is displayed incorrectly upon drop, and toggling it fixes it? that does sound like a glitch.
