    Story Tabs - No more?

    Hi I am new to Fantasy Grounds.
    I am starting to prepare multiple adventures for my campaign and want to flip between them depending where the characters are.


    I am guessing story "tabs" were eliminated at some point...
    I couldn't find any information on this and even the wiki says there are story "tabs".
    Almost all youtube videos and tutorials talk about this etc,

    Could someone please explain details about this and or change the wiki.

    Story Tabs were replaced with Story Categories. At first it will seem confusing, but once you get the hang of it, they are actually a lot more useful.

    The tabs were replaced by a drop down box at the top of each of the campaign list windows for each record type.

    Once you activate the drop down, you can:
    * Click on a group to filter the records to only that group
    * Drag a record link from the list onto a group to re-assign that record to the chosen group
    * Click the Edit button (brown slash)

    Once in editing mode, you can also:
    * Edit a group name
    * Delete a group (Any records will be placed in the (New) group)

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for the replies.
    This is what I assumed.
    Do you know if there is a tutorial for these. When working with NPC's I always seem to have trouble moving them around the categories.

    And if you are making your own adventures, I recommend you read this post, a little out of date, but still very valuable;

    Can someone update the wiki? This confused me as a new user.

    Great feature, thanks for explaining thanks!

    Man from a ease of accessibility stand point, I think this was a step backwards. I can understand from a sense of scale-ability the new method is more robust, but for someone who is more visual inclined or who may want to have some reoccurring go to notes I'm sad this feature has gone away. Almost seems like a "book mark" tab system would be handy that allows for 'quick access' to groups you use a ton.
