How to use Tokens
Uploading tokens to a scene or map
Let's start with the basics. If you want to bring in a token to a scene you have three options.
Option 1: Drag token onto map from your local files
The easiest option is to select an image or video file you have saved locally on your computer and drag into onto the scene. When doing this you will get the option of uploading as a scene or a token.
Option 2: Upload into your token drawer
When you open the token tool drawer you will see all tokens you have uploaded in that campaign. There you can drag a token into the drawer or click the upload button to add new tokens.
Option 3: Drag character tokens from token drawer
Every character (PCs and GM characters) have tokens. Those tokens appear at the top of the token tool drawer. You can drag those onto your scene as many times as you like.
Moving and using tokens
Tokens can be easily selected, moved, rotated, resized, removed, and copy/pasted.
Selecting token. A token can be select by clicking on it with the move tool enabled. If you have select tool enabled then you can also drag to select multiple tokens. All of the following actions can be applied to one or more tokens.
Move token. To move a token you have to have the move or select map tools toggled on. Then you can simply click the token and move it.
Rotate token. Once you have a token selected you will see a bounding box around it. If you hover just outside any of the corners of the bounding box, then you will see the cursor change to a rotation cursor and you can drag up/down or right/left to rotate.
Resize token. With the token select you can click and drag the corners of the bounding box to resize the token.
Remove token. With the token selected you can simply hit delete or backspace to remove a token.
Copy and paste token. With the token selected you can hit ctrl+c/cmd+c to copy a token, then ctrl+v/cmd+v to paste the token. The token will be pasted where your mouse cursor is.
