Dec 20, 2023
- We pushed out a change to the way that the VTT loads that should provide a nice speedup for getting into your games if you have a large number of items in your Art Library. In particular, there was a noticeable "hiccup" after the game loaded when you first tried to interact with objects that should be resolved.
- When chat is popped out in Dark Mode, there is now an outline of the text input box showing you where you can type.

- Added new sheet feature tags to show which sheets have automatic Calculations and Automated Dice

Nov 30, 2023

Nov 29, 2023
- The New Compendium Search in the Roll20 VTT has received an update to make it easier to filter results
- Now when you see results after searching, instead of needing to "un-click" all the categories you don't want to see, you instead "click" on the categories you do want to see.
- This should make it easier to filter down to e.g. just Monsters or Items when viewing results.
- The New Toolbar (which you use as part of the UI Redesign) has been modified to support smaller screen sizes. Now when you have a screen size such that the entire toolbar won't fit, it will smartly size down and hide less-important features behind a "..." menu. This way you can always access all of the functionality of the toolbar, even if you have a tiny screen!
Nov 21, 2023
Updates to Roll20 Characters
- We added back the date and time when a character was added to Roll20 Characters. This will be the imported date and time or the created/duplicated date and time.

Nov 20, 2023

- You can choose to collapse or expand the tree view to give yourself more space to work with in the pages interface.
- The Page Folders interface should now be larger (so you can see more than one row of pages) when you have your display scaling set at the system level (and therefore larger icons in the interface)
- We've updated the icons in our right-hand menu to hopefully be more clear about what each tab contains to match our ongoing redesign efforts.
- We've made some additional changes based on your feedback to our New Compendium Search:
- When searching for multiple terms (for example, "ancient dragon"), you'll now see more targeted search results.
- We've made it more clear how you can close the Filter dialog box after you open it.
- Categories that contain no content (e.g. because you don't have anything purchased in them) will no longer appear in the category index listing.
- When you have the Names Only option enabled with our Integrated Voice and Video system, you can now dismiss the prompt to join voice and video.
- When on smaller screen devices (like tablets) you can now dismiss the What's New dialog box.

- We've released an update to the New Measure Tool based on your feedback! Now the information box that appears near the cursor while measuring is much more compact, so it takes up less screen space and blocks less of the map.
- In addition, if you do a lingering measurement, the info box will further collapse into a small tooltip with just the measurement number visible. You can click on the tooltip to toggle more detail if you'd like.
Oct 9, 2023
- Released the D&D 5e Sheet on Roll20 Characters. Now you can create a D&D 5e character without having to go into a game to do it.

- We've added the new Beam shape!
- We've added a note to the bottom-left corner of the Measure Tool dialog box that lets you know what current measuring system you're using when doing measurements which should help reduce confusion.
- We've made some quality of life fixes for Dynamic Lighting
- When you're on the lighting layer, the Freehand drawing tool will be disabled. Using this tool has always caused issues with the lighting system when drawing walls, and the Polygon tool should be used instead. Many GMs didn't realize this and it was leading to confusion and issues.
- You can now move things directly to the Lighting layer from the right-click menu just like you could with other layers previously.
- We've made a change to the rendering system for Explorer Mode which should result in increased performance, especially for GMs with complicated maps with lots of walls and lights.

Aug 28, 2023
- Best-Guess Initiative Rolling
- When you are rolling initiative from a character sheet (such as the 5th Edition D&D Sheet), in the past you had to select a token on the tabletop before rolling in order to successfully add/update the initiative value for that character in the turn tracker.
- With this update, if you have a token on the current page that you control that is linked to that character, we'll assume you meant to select it and add/update the turn for that token.
- This should greatly reduce frustration for GMs and players so you don't have to keep reminding them to select their token before rolling initiative.
- Note that if you do select a token first, that will always continue to take precedence.
- On the VTT, we released several bugfixes for the new Measure Tool. In particular:
- Fixed bugs with recalling measurements showing incorrect info.
- Fixed a bug where doors and windows were too glowlicious after measuring.
- Fixed a bug with dismissed measurements re-appearing after switching between pages in some cases.
- When updating the Display Name in your Player Settings, the name shown when doing measurements will update immediately.
- When using the scroll wheel to pan the map, if you cursor goes over a measurement tooltip it will no longer stop panning.
- You can now use the middle mouse button to pan the map while measuring again.
- General VTT bugfixes:
- Fixed a bug where Doors and Windows could not be moved immediately after being placed on the Dynamic Lighting layer
Aug 25, 2023
- We released a hotfix for the VTT today to fix an additional issue with the Nameplate on Hover setting, which should be working properly now. In addition, the cursor icon wasn't showing correctly in some cases and now should be.
Aug 23, 2023

- A new Trash Can icon has been added to the top-right corner of the Measure Info Box so you can dismiss measurements from other players.
- When using the Q shortcut to add waypoints to measurements, the waypoint info boxes are now more compact. You can click on them if you'd like to see more detailed information about the waypoint.
- Fixed an issue where the Measure Tool would sometimes leave info boxes on the screen which could not be dismissed. These should appear less often, and if they do get stuck, you can now use the Trash Can icon to dismiss them.

Aug 9, 2023
Introducing the New Measure Tool
- We've redesigned the Ruler in the VTT into the new Measure Tool that will give you a number of new features in addition to the revamped functionality you're use too.
- You can now measure using a Square giving you the ability to measure the square from edge to edge, from corner to corner, and from the center to the edge.
- We've also added a Circle Measure Tool that allows you to measure in a radius or a diameter.
- Lastly, we've added a Cone Measure Tool that allows you to measure using a specific angle. There are a couple presets you can use quickly, but if you need a standard cone used by the most popular games, you can lock width to height and get a 53.13 degree cone. 53.13 degrees is also the default angle for a cone.
- There is also an option for a flat or rounded cone so you can make a pizza shape or a triangle shape.
- We are planning to add a few more Measure Tools to this list so stay tuned.
- Your feedback on these new changes are MUCH appreciated.
Other VTT Improvements
- Added a notification when a Journal Entry is shown to one or more players using the "Show to Players" button at the top of a Journal Entry. Hopefully you don't have to wonder if it was actually shared.
- Added a link to the character sheet from the token context menu. Now when you right-click on a token that is linked to a character sheet, you can easily open up that character sheet from the token.
- Added "Restrict Movement" to the default page settings. Sorry that was left out. Now you can make sure that movement is restricted by default for your page settings.

VTT Bug Fixes
- Fixed a bug where tokens will reappear after being deleted or move unexpectedly when the character sheet is updated. You can again delete these tokens with confidence.
July 24, 2023
- You can now go back in turn order. Sorry that took so long to get too. It's super annoying to have to cycle back through the turn order or rearrange the order to fix a simple mistake. Now you can just go back.
- We have locked down the movement of Doors and Windows so that they can only be moved on the Dynamic Lighting Layer. We're hoping this will reduce the number of people that are having problems with moving those around. Let us know what you think.
- We updated the colors that everyone is assigned when they join a game. We're hoping this will make it easier to identify individual users. Also, you can still change this color if you want.
- We have updated the Zoom slider so that now you can also have access to the Zoom to Fit option. We're hoping this will give everyone all the functionality they need there. Thanks for the feedback! Keep it coming.
- Links in the chat log were hard to see because they weren't styled to look like links. Now they look like links and you should be able to find them easily.

VTT Toolbar Improvements
- You can now collapse the toolbar if the toolbar is taking up more space than you prefer. There is a new button at the top that you can use to do collapse it with. Go to town! Let us know what you think about it.
- We heard a lot of feedback that the toolbar was pretty big and takes up a lot of space. When we were designing it, we were trying to make sure that it was accessible for people that need it to be bigger. We revisited the size of the toolbar and we think we can make some changes to make it smaller while still making sure it's accessible for those that need it to be big. Take a look and tell us what you think!
- You can now ping the map by right-clicking where you want to ping and choosing the "Ping" option from the context menu. You can also do a "Focus Ping" which will move everyone's camera to that point. This makes the ping functionality more discoverable on a desktop and possible on a tablet or mobile device.
- We have collapsed the toolbar on small screens (mobile phones) by default. While we don't support mobile devices, we are trying to slowly improve the mobile experience where we can. We think collapsing the toolbar by default for Mobile Phones will give users more space. Be sure to let us know what you think.
- Improved Layer Flyout so that it doesn't completely overlap the names and pictures at the bottom. Now it should stack vertically.
VTT Bug Fixes
- Fixed a bug that was keeping users on a tablet from long pressing and pinging the map. Now you can show people where you're pointing too while on a tablet!
- Fixed a bug where the shortcut for previewing as a token didn't work for free users. Now that should work fine. Sorry about that.
- Fixed a bug where the layer menu was displaying below the names and avatar images. Sorry that we made it hard to change layers with that. It should be fixed now.
- Fixed a bug where the measure tool would highlight when typing in text areas when using advanced shortcuts. That was super annoying sorry about that. It's fixed now.
- Fixed some bugs with the layer drawer collapsed too early. That should work as expected now.
July 13, 2023
- Pathfinder 2e Character Sheet: Fixed a bug where light items stowed within the capacity of a backpack were incorrectly affecting total bulk calculation

VTT Toolbar Improvements

- Your zoom settings are now persisted when you come back to the game or go to another game. So if you want to use the zoom slider instead of the individual numbers, you don't have to keep making that choice. Also, if you just want to hide the zoom interface entirely you can do that too.
VTT Toolbar Redesign Bugs
- Fixed a bug where the advanced keyboard shortcut for the dice roller would close the dice roller but not open it.
- The new dice roller now goes on top of the right panel so people that like to put it on top of the chat log as they roll can now do so.

June 22, 2023

- The Preview as Token shortcut is now working for macs again.
- For some people the Fog of War tool would stack for the enhanced Fog of War submenu. Now it should display properly.
- Fixed a bug where the screen would jump around a lot while dragging a token and trying to measure using the right click. This now works as expected.
Improvements for the New Toolbar Redesign (Opt-in only)
