Main Article: Macros

In the Macro Quick Bar, you can create quick access buttons for any of your macros that will appear in a bar at the bottom of the screen. First, create your macro like normal. Then, to enable the macro quick bar, check off "Show macro quick bar" in the settings menu



Then, to add a macro to the bar, simply check the "In bar" option next to the macro's name(image on the left). If you have forgotten to turn the macro quickbar on, toggling on a macro will auto-enable the quickbar to display.


The quickbar, and any macros that you have selected should now appear on the bottom of your screen, underneath the character portraits. If you'd like to re-arrange the buttons on the bar, hover your mouse over the button that you'd like to move. A handle will appear on the right side of the button. You can drag the button around the bar by using this handle. Click on that handle to reorganize the button or drag it off to remove it.

Shift+Left Click on a Macro in the macro quickbar will open the editor for that specific macro.

Macro Menu

You can right click on a Macro Button in the Macro Quickbar to bring up a configuration menu which gives you access to a couple of simple features that affect how the macro is displayed for the local user.



Select the Rename entry to bring up a dialog prompting you for a new name to display for the macro. This is particularly useful for macros created by dragging buttons out of character sheets.


Select the Color entry to bring up a color picker. This allows you to change the background color of the Macro Button to make it easier to pick out your different buttons visually. The color of the button text will change to maintain contrast with the chosen background color.

Character Sheets

The Macro Quick Bar allows users to drag and drop roll buttons from the character sheet onto a macro bar at the bottom of the sheet. This then turns the roll button macro you dropped into a macro that’s available in your macro bar!
