Dice Roller Help
Is it possible, when typing in the formula on the right box, to drop lowest or reroll 1's etc?

And if so, how?

Is there a tutorial for it I have missed?

Many thanks.

There is a box for it already. The die roller has some useful options. just look under where you put the number and type of dice in.

when I first came here ( many years ago)..I had some notion of dice roller, but this one is a lot different..and?  I think the best.

you can roll dice  by the single roll, or a whole string at one time..yu can have the total..or each individual  dice.

 the best thing? when you have time..is play with it..try different  dice.. different ways.. after a few moments , you'll have it  down  pat.

 it is even  more expansive for the GM/DM..because you are able to tag who the role is for and why.

In answer to your actual question:

The box at the top defines what you roll (on the left a set number of a certain die on the right a formula of dice).

Below that is how you modify what you rolled above.

So yes, if you put in a formula (like 3d6+2) and then select 'Re-roll 1s' and 'Drop Lowest' and Roll 4,1(5),2 the result will be 11.  It rerolls the 1 to a 5 and drops the 2.

Ok, I know about the other boxes, I was just wondering if there was a way of including it in the string.

There's no need to put it in the dice string, because the options are already in place lower down.

If you look a little farther down on that Help page, you'll find some instructions for placing Dice Roller links in text. There, you can set the dice to roll, the game system, and options like rerolling and dropping/keeping dice. It's especially helpful to use this on character sheets -- in the places where you have a die-roll bonus or number of dice listed, substitute that part with a formatted link to the die roller.

For instance, in a d20-based game, you might have a spot on your sheet that says

Initiative +2

If, instead, you make it say

Initiative [dice=1d20+2 memo="Initiative" text="+2"]

You'll see the same text, but the "+2" will be a link that pops up the die roller with everything filled in.
