    [QUESTION] Map pins visible to players?

    Hi,

    Is it possible to make map pins visible to players? So they can click and view the info?

    Nope, pins are for the GM only.

    A basic way to show short info to the players is to add tokens to the map (make them visible) and drag some text onto the token so that the text appears when a player hovers their mouse pointer over the token.

    Another way of doing this is to use DuluxOz's Location extension. I believe you can create a location, add notes/data and assign a token, then drag the token to the map so that players can access.

    Excelent workaround, thank you!

    Ok, I just found this because I had an issue with this last night. I had 2 players that could see the pins and 2 that could not. I obviously didn't want them to see the pins, so not sure how that happened. I have looked all over for an option that might have been turned on, but can not find one. Any suggestions?

    On the map that has the pins, right click on any green pin - click make pin not shareable.

    I just discovered this myself in Dulux-Oz's last video video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neJYS3bV8EU

    Thanks for the quick response, and that would work if they had been green, but they were seeing the red pins and the description.

    I have never used the pins myself yet, so I am not sure what happened there. Try unsharing, then resharing the map might solve it.
