    I should be able to test my theory, I’ll create a spell with the Hex verbiage and see what the parser does to it. Unfortunately I have do that in another 6 hours, I’m tied up until then. (Of course I’ll report back.) Thanks guys, all three of you.

    Looks like it is.

    I've found several instances of "groups" (for the purpose of filtering entries, e.g. in the "Images & Maps" window) being inconsistently named both within and across modules. Here are the instances that I've found:

    - Every group related to Curse of Strahd in the Images & Maps window starts with "Curse of Strahd" - which is great. There is, however, one group called "DD Curse of Strahd" which contains only one image (showing a rat, probably belonging to "Curse of Strahd - NPCs)
    - Images: DD Xanathar's Guide to Everything Players
    - Images: Volos [sic] Guide to Monsters Players
    - Items: DD Curse of Strahd Players
    - Tables: DD Curse of Strahd Players
    - Tables: DD DMG (all chapters)
    - Tables: Vols [sic] Guide to Monsters Players

    Having all of these categories adhere to the same formatting would make navigating these windows easier.

    Haha, I obviously missed the rat when I updated CoS recently. I changed all the groups for that one and clearly forgot the rat.

    I've noted all of these and thanks for reporting.

    Not a bug, but a question for if it should be reported. Some creatures in the MM/PHB/etc don't have pics for their token, instead having a letter which is fine. If the creature has a picture token from a module that's fairly generic, but not in one of those books, should we report it?

    As an example, Ravens have picture tokens in Curse of Strahd but do not have picture tokens in the MM or the PHB.

    I should have looked, before going through the efforts. Thanks, Zacchaeus. I came up with the same results.

    So, we're back to 4Wire and LordEntrails being correct. The parser is at fault and should be fixed. Looking at the spell description, I don't see any reason for the parser to think that the spell should expire after one use. Possibly that is the parser's default?

    There was an image in CoS for Ravens but there isn't one for Ravens in any of the other published material. So, no, you don't need to report that since the artwork stays in the module it appears in. We can include the images from the MM since permission is given for that but can't take artwork and put it elsewhere.

    Great find. That unresizeable window is already hard to navigate, it needs to be clean!

    I see as well:
    - Tables+images: DD Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes Player
    - Items+images: DD TYP Appendices
    - Races: DD Dungeon Masters Guide - Players
    - images: DD TYP White Plume Mountain (versus TYP White Plume Mountain - images)

    Do you want us to list them all? I guess a quick grep in the XML is faster?

    I’m away from my computer for a couple of days but those look correct, those are all the same name as the module I think. Or are you saying that’s what they should be rather than what they are.
    I don’t know what a grep is but the xml files are not the answer.
