PLEASE NOTE: Roll20 Enhancement Suite (aka VTT es/ R20es), is not part of BetteR20 or 5eTools. However; as BetteR20 installation is enhanced/simplified by already having VTT es/R20es installed, this Wiki covers its content to (HOPEFULLY) prevent BetteR20 users from requesting help on BetteR20 issues on the VTTes/R20es Discord server or other platforms (Reddit/Roll20.net Forum, etc).

Ability Macro Generator

Allows characters and GM to generate Macros by placing a "Generate" button in the Attributes & Abilities Abilities that will open up the generate ability macros dialog. Only certain character sheets are supported. If you'd like to add your own sheet, submit a GitHub PR.

Known Issues/Limitations

FAQ


Token Actions
Token actions are macros, just stored as part of the character's sheet - this can be confusing because they appear in different locations "collections" for the macros, and on the Abilities and Attributes (??) tab on character sheets for Token action Macros. So if you want to edit the Token Actions (buttons that appear atop the screen when the token is selected). You will need to modify the Abilities and Attributes entries for the macro(s) in question.
