Use this to restrict the results to Tokens, Portraits or Images. Set to All to look across all three categories.

Enter one or more keywords to search, separated by a space or comma. The results will include all filtered object types that contain all of the search terms as part of the name.

3. Zoom/Preview

The magnifying glass icon over an image means you can click to preview the image in its own window.

4. Grid/List View

This will toggle to a list view with one result per line and more room for the result name.

Use List View when you want to scan result names more quickly.

5. Up to Index

This only appears when you are in a folder or using a Search. It will return you to the index for the currently selected result types.

6. Breadcrumb

This will only show up when you are in a folder or using a Search. It will allow you to navigate up to a previous folder directly. Clicking on the Filter will remove it.

7. Results

Results will show up here. Folders may be represented by a graphic, such as a bag. Only the first page of results will be shown. Refer to the Next Page and Previous Page buttons to see additional results.

Images and tokens specific to your campaign will show up under a folder called campaign. They can be accessed from the Folder menu.

8. Folder

This opens a File Explorer window on your Operating System that points you to the Fantasy Grounds Unity Data Folder. From there, you can navigate to the tokens folder or over to your campaign image folder.

To access your campaign folder, go up to the root of the Data Folder and then into the campaigns folder. Find the folder that matches your current campaign name. Inside, you will find an images folder.

9. Store Link

This will open a web browser and preload the Store (FantasyGrounds.com or Steam) where you can purchase additional packs.

10. Next Page

If the results are more than 50, you will be able to navigate to the next page of results here.

A Previous Page button will appear whenever you have multiple pages of results and you are not on Page 1.
