Game Tools: Markers

Markers Markers allow you to place points of interest on the map, room descriptions or party notes.

For those who like to add a description of the scene in the Game Log such as descriptive text in published adventures, a great way to pre-program the map is to create Map Markers with the descriptive text in the marker description.

To access this feature:

  • Open the d20Pro Menu.
  • Select Games Tools.
  • Select the Map Markers icon.
  • Click on the map and create a Map Marker where you clicked.
