View Bar

Post by Ozgosh » Sat Apr 21, 2012 10:49 pm

Is there a way to remove the View Manager pop up bar. I am running Batttleground as a table top on two monitors (from same computer) and I am trying to clean up the "player monitor" and would like to remove the View Manager bar, the Roll Dice macro bar, and even the big "B" if possible, leaving me with a clean screen. Any of this possible?

Welcome, Ozgosh.

I'm not sure why I didn't come across this post before, but I just came across it while doing a periodic sweep of the forums looking for "unanswered posts".

There is currently no way to disable the Views Palette entirely, except by (I think) putting two spaces in the name of each and every View button, in the View Manager. However, BRPG v1.7f will have a toggle setting to quickly disable the Views Palette entirely.

You can already auto-hide the BG button. Look in the Preferences panel to enable that option.

Lastly, you can also disable the Roll Dice Macro button via a toggle setting in the BG button's popup menu.

In short, you can hide two of the three things you mentioned using the current release of BRPG, and you will be able to hide the third using the next beta release (coming soon).

Has this option been implemented yet? The pop-up View Manager bar is a very obnoxious and intrusive element to using BRPG in a tabletop setting. It would be very nice to have the option to disable it so it doesn't constantly get in the way of the map during game sessions.

Yes, it has. See this thread.

A more "permanent" means of disabling the Views palette just debuted in BGE v1.7. This same capability will be in BRPG v1.8d, when it's released.
