    Hi all!

    I see that we have a General Discussion thread, but I wanted to start a discussion regarding technical aspects of tools, and maybe allow a location for people to share macro templates.

    Looks like current release version of Maptool is 1.3b84, is this the build that everyone is using?

    I'll put some macro templates in here once I get one working.

    The latest version, as of a month and a half ago, was 1.3.b89, but we're using 1.3.b86.

    MapTool Template

    Here is a good basic template for macros to start with:
    Code:
    <table border='0' cellpadding='0' cellspacing='0'>
       <tr bgcolor='Green'>
          <td><span style='color:white'><b>Name of attack or power</b></span></td>
       </tr>
       <tr bgcolor='#DAD9C6'>
          <td><i>Handbook Text Description</i></td>
        </tr>
        <tr><td>
            <b> At-Will • Weapon</b> <br>
            <b>Standard Action</b> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Melee</b> weapon<br> 
            <b>Target:</b> One creature<br>
            <b>Attack:</b> Str vs. AC<br>
            Roll: [d20 + StrBonus + LevelBonus + Weapon1Bonus + MiscAttBonus]<br>
        </td></tr>
        <tr bgcolor='#DAD9C6'><td>
            <b>Hit:</b> 1[W] + Str damage.<br>
            Roll: [Weapon1Damage + StrBonus + Weapon1DamBonus + MiscDamBonus]<br>
            Increase damage to 2[W] + Str at 21st level.<br>
         </td></tr>
         <tr><td>
            <b>Special:</b> You can use an unarmed attack as a weapon to make a melee basic attack.<br>
         </td></tr>
    </table>
    The code for the little dot thing is "& bull ;" (but remove the whitespace characters).

    If you add this to a macro the names of the items inside the square brackets will prompt you for a value, so you will be asked for "Weapon1Damage". If you already have static values for these then you can replace the bonus with the actual value.
