How to: GM Notes

Using your Gm-Notes (main menu), you'll be able to do write out full descriptions and information for your map, which will be tied to the map in the application.


To make use of the dynamic room descriptions, select a room image from the list and drag it onto the text area.

On the left hand side, you can see the different functions of the DM Notes. On the right hand side, you can see the text document for your map.


  1. Layer and Room Panel: From here, you can minimize or expand each layer to see an overview of the entire level as well as see individual rooms. Drag & drop the preview images onto your notes to add them.
  2. Bookmark Panel: Based on the headlines, or rooms you have added a bookmark section will be created to help you navigate your notes.
  3. Print: Print out your notes.


What you write using the GM Notes tool will show up in the Virtual Tabletop function of Dungeon Fog! Simply click on the book icon in the yellow panel to view them.

How utilize the dynamic notes


To add a room to your notes, simply drag the image from the sidebar onto your notes-canvas:

1) Select the room preview you want to add and drag it onto the canvas


2) Based on the notes you have added through the editor (notes tab) and the textures and assets you have used to draw the room, a preview image and a table with dynamic notes will be created.
