it seems that a few other people (like me) dont understand tabs too well, so after a little digging on the subject i thought i would share :)

this is the basic tab

right click on it for a menu

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/c-manning/fg/tab2.jpg

now there are two

customise them

Drag story items to new tab

you can also drag your tabs left and right into different order



if you want to add them in XML

the structur should look like this

<node name="encounter">
<categorydef holder="Chris" definition="0,0:0,0:0,0" />
<node name="00001" category="1">
<stringvalue name="name" value="About Wizard's Amulet" />

it user your user name to set up the tabs
the definitions are a two digit pair
eg. 0,0:0,0 would set 2 tabs, in red with the default icon

the first digit is the colour & the 2nd is the icon

colours
0=red
1=green
2=blue
3=yellow
4=purple

icons (i dont know the proper names..this is my interpretation :) )
0=std icon
1=sheild
2='z'
3=envelope
4=star
5=flag
6=cross
7=ball

hope that helps

dontknow if you saw this since i posted but thought i would mention it here. The FG_Converter for word is updated to support tabs, and assigning tabs to each story point.
FYI it is Here (http://forums.fantasygrounds.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2541&sid=22fdce8cb9a1e0d3781ed71851a7863f#2541)

Beautiful work tarrasque. Much appreciated. You seem to have a very good grasp of what this tool can and can't accomplish. I'm going to start up a thread where everyone can put their favourite tip link down. Sort of a "master list" if you will of helpful hints and topics.

Thanks again.

I already found that out, but nevertheless, very good work! This might be useful for an update of the manual, with kudo's to you of course;)

Is there a chance that the manual will be expanded with more in-depth material on certain commands that can be used?

onky,

From what I can tell, SmiteWorks has developing an "enhanced" guide for content developers on the burner somewhere.

They have a lot on their plates, though.

tarrasque,

I can't thank you enough for this little hint / tutorial. Thanks. I will do a search on your username from now on when I have a question.

Regards all,

Feanor

Anyone figured a way to put names for tabs in there? Like tooltips, be nice if you had a massive sotryline built into the story frame, you could break it up with tabs and name them, say for the encounters or soemthing make it allot easier to find imformation quicker than clicking through all your tabs.
