Scale of Tokens

Postby Averageguy » Mon Feb 26, 2018 12:28 am

Windows 8, scale of tokens that came with the program are huge even on their smallest setting and since I still can't figure out how to add my own tokens to the app yet this isn't working. The tokens on the smallest setting are taking up about 6 squares in a grid. Please help.

Are you making sure to scale your maps when you import them?

Every time you import a map from an existing image, or capture a map image using your device's camera/webcam, you should be prompted to scale the map. When scaling the map, try to match it to the appropriate size for the example token and map link shown in the scaling preview. This will ensure that your map lines up nicely with the token's default sizes.

To add your own tokens, just place the images ( .png with transparency recommended for custom tokens with transparent backgrounds) in a folder called "playerTokens" (this is case sensitive) in your root IDM folder. To find the root IDM folder for your platform (and for all other platforms), along with more detailed instructions on adding custom tokens, see page 16 in the IDM instruction manual:
