Character Sheet Development/Feature Updates

From Roll20 Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a curated Changelog on updates to the system for creating & editing Roll20 Character Sheets, curated from the official Changelog, the forums, and other sources.

See also the Character Sheet Development/Bugs page for know bugs in the Roll20 sheet creation system.


Planned Updates

In Dec. 2022, Roll20 gave more details on plans to upgrade the sheet development system, naming it the Beacon Sheet Development Kit.

It would enable devs to use features previously limited to mods, and to more easily integrate modern webdev frameworks like Vue & React in sheet development.



Community Updates



  • When opening a character in the VTT, the character sheet will be the first tab, instead of Bio tab.


  • Adjusted styling for "Custom Sheet Sandbox" and "Access the Dev Server" on the "My Games" page while in dark mode.
  • CSS & Styling of the site was updated, which caused styling issues for a small number of community sheets.
    • PR #10902 was caused by this. Official Savage Worlds also had CSS issues but they where resolved on Roll20's side.


  • Fixed a roll macros issue where computed rows displayed in allProps if a property wasn't named.








  • Mobile App update
    • Added support for jQuery functions in character sheets - Sept. 7th


  • Character Sheets - Add pseudo-variable to allow Sheet Authors to scope roll templates. August 17, 2021(Forum)
  • Character Sheets - Added Environment Variables for Sheet Authors to scope sheetworkers.



  • Now on Dev Server: Image Attributes(Forum) - 26th
    • making it possible to dynamically change images shown on the sheet from custom urls, changing background-images, and ability to show character avatar & tokens directly on the sheet.


  • fixed issues with @import Release Note for April 27, 2021(Forum)
    • if a @import exists, it seems it might result in roll20 ignoring the first instance of the next css class in the file, workaround is to add an empty, "sacrificial" version of the class first that will be eaten up, and the one after will work normally
  • Most initial bugs with Character Sheet Enhancement have be fixed and the framework is now stable, and better than LCS.


Character Sheet Enhancement(CSE) sheet update was fully released, expanding the html & css things that can be done with character sheets. This includes more options to make char sheets look good on the Roll20 Mobile app.

Before the release of CSE, the Char Sheet System changed so rarely there wasn't a big need to separately keep track of changes, but starting from CSE there where number of changes that never ended up in the official Changelog, so this page got started.
