    I would say that the modifier buttons work with your next die roll (or existing one of you apply and drag and drop onto the target). Pushing the button does not add an effect or change what you see on the combat tracker.

    There is also an opportunity attack button. How does this affect the attack/damage roll?

    I guess that works like in 3.5e/Pathfinder:

    https://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/...php/5E_Effects

    On that page are some effects with the descriptor "opportunity" (but "opportunity" may work also always when one has the descriptor [range]? At least that seemed so in 3.5e). With that descriptor that effect only turns on when someone is making an attack of opportunity but for that you have to tell FG that some attack is an attack of opportunity and that is done with that opportunity button (Please correct me if that is different in 5e)

    The opportunity button tells FG that the attack is an opportunity attack. If someone has an effect on them that only fires when they get an opportunity attack FG needs to know this.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    If a character had an an effect such as ATK: 1d6, opportunity then they’d get a d6 bonus to their attack roll if they make an opportunity attack. If you don’t press the opportunity button FG won’t register that it is an opportunity attack and the effect won’t fire.

    Ok. Thank you. (I still don't know where you would get such an effect)

    You would create it in the actions tab. Or do you mean what spell/ability or whatever from the rulebook gives a bonus or penalty to opportunity attack rolls? If the latter I'm not sure off hand that there are any.
