Importing Character

I use The Only Sheet to manage my character information. There is an option to export to Foundry from there. When using the desktop version of FVTT my character comes in just fine. When I try to use my Forge instance nothing happens when I try to import. Am I doing something wrong?

I don’t know what The Only Sheet does (first time I hear of it, and it looks like it’s a PC application) or how it exports to Foundry. Do you have any more details? A screenshot perhaps, what kind of “export” it creates? do you get a file? How are you trying to import it on The Forge and what kind of error do you get?

Post as much info as you can, with accompanying screenshots when possible.
Thanks

There are no errors, nothing happens at all. Here are the steps I take in both the local copy and the Forge copy of FVTT:
1 - Create new actor
2 - Close sheet
3 - Right click on actor name
4 - Select Import option
5 - Find file on local system
6 - Click Import File
7 - Open sheet to verify data

In my local copy everything appears as expected. In Forge, there are no changes to the character sheet.

I tried to copy the json file up so you could see it, but I cannot. So, I have added the text for the josn file below this message so you could see it.

Thanks for any help.

Ah I see, thanks for clarifying the process.
I just tried with the file you posted and it works fine for me on the Forge :

Can you press F12 in chrome to get the dev console and see if any errors appear in red in the console after you do the import? Make sure the world you’re trying to import into is a dnd5e world, and try with modules disabled in case a module is causing some interference and breaking that functionality.

Odd, I changed from the default 5e sheet to Tiny 5e sheet (not sure if that is the exact name or not) and now it works. I don’t think I changed anything else. But, now at least it is working.

Thanks!

that is weird yeah, since I used the default sheet, and the import is done by the core, the sheet should just change how it represents it visually.
I don’t know what to tell you… :man_shrugging: at least now it works!
