Referring to MapTool intrinsic token properties?

I'm just curious: Is there a way to refer to other properties of a token, not in the user-defined list, but all those other properties used directly by MapTool? For example, modifiers based on size: is there a way to auto-detect the size of the token and thus calculate size modifiers automatically o...

I'm really enjoying watching the progress from each build to the next, especially how features appear and progress along the way. The drawing tools are definitely easier to use. Shift-click selecting = awesome I'm really looking forward to when lighting become visible again. The tabs in campaign pro...

Property ShortName?

Am I right in thinking that the 'ShortName' of a property is only ever used in the statsheet that pops up on a mouse rollover? I got confused at one point and tried to refer to properties by their ShortNames in macros, which totally doesn't work. At first I thought I could use long names, and declar...

If there was an option to hide the math and show only the result, this would work as intended.
i.e.
/me attack with my :noshow:[Weapon1Name]!

I want to try CharTool, but it's not working on my Mac (OS X 10.5.3). You need to run Java 6 to run CharTool. I know that Apple has a version of Java 6 w/o the JavaScript engine in it. You can also try Soylatte. I don't have a Mac to test anything with so there migh be other problems as well. That ...

I would also be interested in something similar as the original poster. Or a "Strict Permissions Mode" where a connected player can only move tokens they own.

There is also an easy way to do a batch resize in Mac OS X, using Automator. However, it only takes integer percentages.

If that is intimidating, you could also try EasyBatchPhoto

Now, I can try out these new free Dungeon Tiles, too. Thanks, torstan!

I'm not sure what's happening with your properties, but I agree with the dice math. It would be cool to have the option to show only the end result and rollover to see the steps that produced it. At the very least, having the result in bold or a different colour would also be useful.

Speaking of shift-clicking, it would be nice if you could remove tokens from a group during shift-clicking: while holding shift down, clicking on each new token adds it to the group, while clicking on an already selected token de-selects it from the group. This is currently not how it behaves, which...

:) Lighting is at the top of the wall of features and so can't have any more credits thrown at it I was very excited to see that As for cones, can't we effectively draw these when required using the AoE templates? I realise these are blocky, but if this was extended to have non-blocky would this do...

So, I've been trolling through the extensive and active (!) forum, and found these threads: * Darkvision change please * Setting the radius of lights * AoE Templates All of which discuss what I was thinking of. Blindsight= X-ray vision or when going Ethereal, for example. It sounds like trevor's wor...
