 Post subject: line break in a token property
PostPosted: Mon Nov 08, 2010 10:50 am 
I need to get a line break to show on a tokens statsheet.
I have this:
Code:
I need a <br/> newline here

and it shows just fine in the chat panel, but I get that text exactly as-is, including the line break tag, on the statsheet. I dont really want to have new properties for each line because ill end up wit text1, text2, text3... ad absurdum.

Can't be done - the token statsheet does not support anything but straight text (it's not an HTML-capable form; it's a rendered image).

Totally necro'ing this thread because I'm looking to do the same thing as the OP.

Is this still the case with the latest version of MapTool or has this changed? Is there any known way to get a line break inserted into the text field of the statsheet?

Here's what I do if you want a property across multiple lines: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=26881#p264487

Yeah, I considered doing something along those lines. It's inelegant but if there's no other way then I might do that. I was hoping that functionality might have been added since the original post, but alas.

Thanks for your reply, aliasmask.

I use a character limit but you could set it up with a special character to break the line so it breaks where you want.
