A very basic question about tables I have edited with the maptool basic Table Editor... how do you hide the result from the players?

Thnx

just use the hidden (h:) or gm (g:) roll option: [r,g:table("sometable")]

This is the same for my 'tables' function which this topic is about. (or any result for that matter)

In the EDIT TABLE option, where should I add the (h:) command? Before the D6? After? Can't get it working

I think he is trying to place the [H: blah] directly into the table and not in the macro that calls the table. Just my thought based on his reply.

With "normal" tables, when I double click on the table icon the result will appear on the chat, and it's visible to everybody. How do I make the result invisible (visible only to the GM)?

I do not believe you can add the modifiers (roll options?) directly into a table.

You would want to call the table from a macro and set it to hidden like Wolph showed you a few posts up.

Yup. You can enter he roll option in the table but then you would need to evaluate the result which can only be done with a macro. So that would defeat the purpose. The best option is indeed the call I posted a while ago. You can either enter that straight in the checkbox or create eg a campaign macro for it.
