Custom Tokens are similar to Custom Tiles, in that they can be used to make tile/token-like game objects. The difference is that Custom Tokens are able to "cut out" the transparency of an image to make a token with a customized shape.
Importing Custom Token¶
In-game, navigate to the top of your screen and select Objects > Components > Custom > Custom Token.
How you choose to import files impacts if other players can see them when you're finished.

|Image||The image that will be used to create the token.|
|Thickness||How thick, in in-game units (about an inch), the token is.|
|Merge Distance||How accurate the "cutout" of transparency is performed.|
|Stackable||If this token can form a stack with others of the same type.|
Various images with transparent backgrounds.
When you use the in-game object tinting feature on a custom token, it tints the whole token, including the image.
- Images that have a transparency in the middle (like a donut) will not cut out the transparency in the middle of the image.
- If you are having trouble with the transparency not getting cut out properly, try to add a small transparent border around the entire image. It helps.
- Custom Tiles load faster than Custom Tokens. If you can use a custom tile instead, it is almost always preferable.
