The targeting toolbar will only appear once there are tokens on the map.

The GM will only see the targeting toolbar once they have unlocked a map with tokens on it.

I think the tokens need to be dropped from the Combat Tracker also.

Nope. Not in my testing. Just dropped a token straight from the token bag (it's not even linked to a character) and the targeting controls appeared.

Hmm strange.. not working on my end.. I will have to try and toy around with it. I usually place my tokens on the map via encounters not directly from the combat tracker.

I can drop PCs from the Character listings and it works but npcs dragged from the NPC list are just pins. Tokens dropped from the bag will show up but not sure targeting with those is much use but I suppose that could be what he was shooting for?

How do you place them on the map from encounters w/o placing them in the CT first? If you are dragging/dropping the "placement" versions those are just placeholders for when you use the "Add encounter to combat tracker" which will then place them were you put the markers.

Also, I think the map needs to be unlocked also (click the padlock looking thing on the top right of the map).
