In Roll20, a game is comprised of multiple Pages, like the pages from a storybook or the scenes in a storyboard. Each page represents an encounter, an NPC, an overland map, or some other discrete piece of the game. You can only view one page at a time.

The Page Toolbar (Dec 2020)

Page Settings & The Players Ribbon: Roll20 Tutorial

Managing Pages

You, as a Gamemaster, manage the pages of your Game by clicking on the Page Toolbar button in the top right-hand side of the screen (a blue button with a white icon of a page). The toolbar shows you all the pages currently in your game. You can drag and drop the pages to re-order them, or click on the name of the page to edit the name. The Page Toolbar can be scrolled horizontally by using your mouse wheel while holding your keyboard's Shift key.

If you hover over a page you'll also see two new buttons appear, one (y,a gear icon) for accessing the Page Settings dialog box, and the other (a crossed X) for duplicating the page. To delete the page, click on the gear and scroll to the bottom of the menu to find the red "Delete Page" button.

To create a new page, just click on the "Create New Page" button on the left-hand side of the Page Toolbar. Change the page's name by clicking on the name under the page's icon. Enter the new name and press Enter/Return to save.

Page Icons

The image used to represent a Page is the largest image on that page. If you would like to override the Page Icon, you can place the image you want to use (or duplicate an existing graphic that isn't the largest image) and then scale it up to a very large size. You can then right click the image and move it to the back of the layer to hide it beneath other images. See: Manipulating Graphics

Switching Between Pages

The GM can quickly switch between pages at any time by accessing the Page Toolbar and clicking on the page that they want to switch to. There will be a short loading sequence and the selected page will be displayed.

Note that is entirely possible that the GM and the players can be on a different page, so you can be constructing the next encounter while your players are still on a previous page.

Player Ribbon

The "Player Ribbon" is currently On the "Landing Page"-map, meaning all players are viewing it currently.
The red Player Ribbon/ Player Bookmark determine which page the players are looking at. You can click and drag the "Player Ribbon" to move it between pages, thus moving the players to that new page. This does not affect the GM, and you need to double-click on the page to move yourself there.

It's smart for the GM to first move themselves to look at a page and make any last minute adjustments, before moving the players to the page.

See Split the Party if you want to have players looking at different maps/pages.

Duplicate Page Settings

The Duplicate Page-button will create a new page with the identical settings of the source page, along with all of it's content. This allows you to create a page with the movement options, scale, grid, etc all set the way you want it, and then add more pages with the same settings.

True Page Duplication(Forum) was released on Dec 8th,2020, which updated the the "Duplicate Page" feature to copy everything on a page, when it previously couldn't copy all features. An API called "Page Copy" was used as an workaround by the community until then.

(unconfirmed) some minor things doesn't get copied between pages with this feature

Moving Tokens Between Pages

Sometimes you will want to move objects (such as tokens representing the players) between pages.

To do so, just select the tokens, then press Ctrl+C (Cmd+C on Mac) to copy them.

Switch to the new page, then press Ctrl+V(Cmd+V for Mac) to paste them onto the new page. The location that token will paste to is oriented from the last time you clicked on the tabletop.

Split the Party


Just drag-and-drop the "player" from the player area at the bottom of your screen, onto a page in the page toolbar at the top (while the toolbar is open). That will create a little icon for that player to show what page they are on. Drag and drop their icon onto a different page to switch that player between pages, or drag the icon back onto the Player Ribbon to reset ('rejoining the group', essentially). You must drag the icon onto the Player Ribbon itself, not just the same map!
