    unable to add spell action

    This is so weird.

    In PFRPG, I am simply trying to add a spell action for the spell 'shield' and it won't let me. every time i click 'add effect' from the radial menu, it adds a cast button.. no effect for me to put in the code. if i click on that cast button, it spits out an error 'unable to encode effect details'

    it does the same thing if i try the other radial buttons on that menu (cast, damage, heal).

    is anyone else seeing this?

    Nope. I can add an effect action to the shield spell in a spell class on the actions tab.

    Are you running any extensions?

    What versions are showing for the three rulesets loaded in the chat window?

    That sounds like it's adding the effect, but it's not displaying correctly.

    Check the things I mentioned in my previous post.

    Also try scrolling up and down the Actions tab (just in case it's a display refresh issue). Also try closing the PC sheet (I assume it's a PC sheet and not an NPC sheet?) and re-open it.

    Ver says 3.3.12

    This is to an NPC sheet. I had not tried a character sheet.

    Now that is interesting.

    i am able to add spell effects to a PC sheet with no problem. But the NPC sheets will not accept spell effects.

    it adds the cast button but like i said, there is no code attached to it. just gives the error when pressed.

    the only extension i am running is FG - Dungeon. i don't have any other extensions going on.

    confirmed it is all NPC sheets. not just the one.

    Did you open the NPC from the combat tracker or from the library/npc list?
    Is this a new NPC that you have made from scratch or one from a module?

    NPC's are from the Curse of the Crimson Throne module.

    i opened them from the story link and from the library... same results.

    BUT.. i open from combat tracker and the built in effect was broken. i was able to delete and then add it back in and it seemed to work ok but still unable to add the effect when the NPC is opened from the library.

    yup.

    all versions current.

    I have replicated the issue.
    It occurs when adding an action to a spell of an NPC in an unlocked module.
    It does not occur when adding a spell to an NPC in the local db.

    I think there must be more to this, however, as I would expect Curse of the Crimson Throne to be a locked module...
