    Is there anyway to make the game log and roster so that they open in a separate window?
    in the DM screen, screen space in the software is a premium and I find the gamelog and rosters sometimes get in my way especially if I am trying to see a large scale map. It would be awesome if those could unhook from the host window and be placed along the side of my monitor, so I can keep the screen for all the awesomeness that is the map and combat.

    I know this has been brought up before and @owlbear has looked at it. I'll ask him about it again when I speak to him next.

    I talked to @owlbear a bit about this today. It appears as though those items are not windows in the traditional sense. However, it is possible I might be able to write an extension that you could run in/on another monitor you could read the game-log in. I'll do some poking and let you know what I come up with.

    Yeah. I'll work with Kril on a solution for this. Ideally we want to get to a point where we can manage the in-app "windows" as actual windows. the way they're currently built, however, will require a re-write to support that kind of behavior.

    For game data itself, however, we actually write the content out to a file in your campaign folder which affords the ability to read that file into an external tool or application.
