    In the Spell, Item, and Monster listings, you can filter by source.

     Would you be so kind as to describe how?  I have a search result page up right now, and can't for the life of me find any kind of 'filter by source'.  I can filter by "major category" (characters, spells, monsters, items, etc.) but can't figure out how to filter by source.  Thank you if you can help further. 

     I believe what he's saying is within the monster listing and such you can filter a source, not in the search bar.  If you go from the main menu > Monsters > Official (or Spells > official or Items, etc.) you are brought to the database.  From there, if you hit advanced filters, there is a box for "Source"  -- as well as several other filters.

    In the actual search, no you cannot filter by source still.

    posted a message on [Mega-Thread] Character Sheet Revamp Feedback

    Forum thread searching still isn't working, so if this was mentioned, sorry:

    On Desktop view, when looking at Features and Traits you are given the page number and source of the class features.  That's awesome, however it doesn't seem to appear elsewhere (under the traits or spells for example).  I know real estate is at a premium, especially with spells, but could the source be included maybe in the sidebar that opens up when selected?  The reason I would like this is just to verify what sources spells come from.  If I'm in a game that's not allowing XGtE for example, when I'm adding spells through the character builder, I can't filter those out and I don't see the source at all.  

    Additionally, I think a great enhancement would be the ability to click the source given and be taken to that source in a new tab.  Frankly, giving me the page number of the PHB while I'm on DNDBeyond.com is pretty useless, as you don't have page numbers anywhere in the compendiums.  I love that it's there for reference for books, and I'm not asking that it be removed as I'm sure others really wanted it, I'm just asking that you also make it a link to the source in DNDBeyond.com.    Edit:  I guess this isn't really necessary as the text in full is in the sidebar.

    Lastly after mentioning the not being able to filter spells when adding via character builder or character sheet -- can we have that implemented?  Using a character like a Rogue Arcane Trickster that is only allowed to use Illusion or Enchantment spells for a few selections would be much easier to do in just the character builder rather than also having to consult the spell listing with the filter on to only show me those spells that match in a separate tab/window.

    The description of the LB has been updated to include WGTE, but I don't see Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica listed as a source there yet.

    Quote from mjsoctober >>

    This may be relevant to the people in this thread. :)

     

     I'll believe when we eventually see it. I have a feeling the final official Eberron book will have a lot more in it, and cost more.

    In other words, we might end up with two products:

    1. Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron for $20

    2. Eberron Campaign Setting for $(20 + X) with more material than in the final WGtE.

    What I mean is, Mearls isn't technically misleading us of WGtE gets Artificer added, but is misleading by omission if the final printed book is not called WGtE and has way more stuff in it.

     

    Based on two Tweets from Mike Mearls (sourced below) -- I'm expecting that basically the WGTE as it is will be updated after playtesting and what you pay for now is what you will get in it's "final" form.  There might be a few more things added (maybe the artificer class), but this is basically what it will be.  You will get all of the updates as a result of the playtesting.

    However, there is likely going to be another, separate, Eberron book.  Per his tweets, there will be some overlap/duplicate information, but they will be two separate products meant to compliment each other.

    Tweets I'm referring to:
    Mike stating "theoretically" two separate things
    and
    Mike stating theoretical print release will compliment the online version and have some duplicate info

    this is via Compendium > Rules > WGTE link -- it seems to work from elsewhere (clicking on a race in the races tab, or clicking it from within the marketplace).

    I searched "tooltip" and "sidebar" in this thread with no results, so I'm posting this suggestion.

     

     

    I posted about this in the bug/support forum yesterday, here, so hopefully this gets resolved.  It seems that searching within a thread specifically isn't working, which sucks in a thread of 1200+ posts.

    posted a message on Searching keywords in thread doesn't work

    Hello:  

    I was trying to search the "[Mega-Thread] Character Sheet Revamp Feedback" thread and found that when searching the thread nothing was returning.  I was looking for any posts regarding "saving throws" -- and as such searched save, saving, death save, and nothing was returning.  I know that these words appear somewhere as I posted within the forum about it, but wanted to see if anyone else had as well.

    If I search the entire forum it works fine.

    Also if I search an author in the thread, that works fine.

    However, searching a keyword in the thread returns no results, regardless of the keyword (I also tried "character" as that obviously shows up several times).  

     

    Process for replicating issue:  Open thread > Hover over "Search" > select "Search this thread" > type in keyword in the "Search" box, the "All" radio button is selected > click search.

    I want to chime in and say I personally prefer the pop up menus to the sliding.  It's easier for me to get where I'm going, before I may slide to the right 5 times before getting to the page I want, now it's just two clicks.

    I have a BIG ask for a small change to the default preferences!

    By default, the privacy for all characters is set to Public - which means everyone in your campaign can see your sheet.  If you have actually populated the backstory and notes sections, they can now see info that is only really for you and the DM.  Can we have the default changed to Private?

      Was addressed in the stream, BadEye said this isn't going to happen, as their data indicates that way more people want it public than private.  Therefore the amount of people who have to make a manual change is smaller with the setting the way it is.

    not sure if bug or by design -- when HP drops to 0 the menu changes to death saving throws success/failures which is awesome.  However, I would think I could click a bubble on either and it would fill in, though it doesn't, it brings up the sidebar and I have to select within those checkboxes on the sidebar to fill in death saves/fails.  Just an extra click, but would be nice if it was right in-line like the HP amount is.  

     

    Looking great otherwise thus far!

    Quote from Antaioz >>

    With a game starting in a little under 24 hours, I'm constantly wondering if it'll drop mid-game for us.

    That'll be interesting.

    Chances are whenever they do it, it will be inconvenient for someone, considering they have a worldwide userbase.  I'm sure they are doing their due diligence and release major updates when least impactful to the the majority of their users.

    Quote from Asgorath >> 

    I'm as excited as anyone for the new sheet because I think it's going to be so much better than the current version, but perhaps a lot of this pain and anguish could've been avoided if they were a little more clear about the fact the early screenshots were just mock-ups and they hadn't actually started implementing things yet.

    I want to seriously, earnestly state that I'm not posting this in a trolling way, but as a counterpoint to illustrate I thought I had been clear about it in the first dev update it was mentioned:

    As we went along and I started to see the "pain and anguish," I realized that the message posted right at the top of the rough mock still in design and me calling that out in the dev update perhaps wasn't clear enough - hence the change to bucket our development updates into what is currently in progress versus what is upcoming.

    For everyone out there, I'm happy to see excitement around what has been an enormous undertaking by the team. I'll have more to share this week - stay tuned!

    first screenshot you posted actually didn't have that, just saying (though of course the post above the screenshot did say it's a WIP). Despite the "not too long" time frame of 9 months since this post, I'm still really excited for the new sheet.  It might be enough to make me resubscribe and try to convince players it is worth using.

    posted a message on I always want to change characters...

    You have to figure out why you always want to change characters.  Is it boredom?  Is it optimization (trying to find the perfect build that has no weaknesses and many strengths)?  Is it lack of attachment/depth in your character?  Is it seeing the other players do something cool and wanting to do that?  Is it playing for a few sessions and realizing your limits, then thinking that another class can go beyond those limits, thus you want to play that instead, but again find the "shortcomings" of that class instead?  Ask yourself these questions, take time and think about it.  None of these are bad feelings, but you have to understand what you're feeling to figure out how to "deal" with it.  

    My guess, from your two short paragraphs on the subject, is that you're in a group and want to be the hero, the main character, the protagonist, not just one in a group of them.  It's the reason you're in a fantasy game anyway, right, to do what you can't do in real life.  Someone does something cool and you want to have the feeling of everyone seeing/being envious of the cool thing you just did instead.  If this is in fact the case, don't take it as a bad thing, it isn't.  You might want to try a solo campaign with another DM, or even just a group of you and one other, to get that feeling you're desiring.  Or, you can try to realize that it's awesome when everyone gets their turn in the spotlight, and just know that if you hadn't had it in a while, it's surely coming soon.  It has to be in a game like this, it's just the way it works, everyone gets their shot.  I'm currently playing a knowledge cleric in which I rolled horrible stats (16 WIS is my high, with 15 CON, 6 DEX, 6 CHA, 8 INT, 10 STR).  Everyone else in the campaign took the standard array.  I'm somehow still alive at level 5, and we are encountering our big bad for the 2nd time after he "let us escape" the first time after obliterating us in a few short rounds.  We're all terrified, and I can't even kill Kobolds, but I cast Suggestion and he rolls a Nat 1.  That's where we left off but he is currently leading us to his treasure.  It felt awesome, and I'll be happy if that's my characters one memorable thing, even if he dies next session or survives until the end of the campaign.

    posted a message on How to take notes efficiently as a player character?

    don't fret over things like spelling names and places -- just write it down somewhat phonetically, so that you can reasonably repeat the name (or close to it).  Asking for spelling of something like that slows the game down, and chances are it doesn't really matter, you likely aren't going to need to know how to spell the name of the town you're going to or person your looking for, you just need to know how to say the name.
