The Roll20 Interface is broken down into four sections:


1. The Tabletop
2. The Toolbox
3. Page Toolbar
4. Sidebar

[edit] 1. Tabletop

This is the largest portion of the playspace. This is where you set up your battle maps or board game play mats and where you'd place your tokens. You can also use it as a dry erase board.
