    Hi guys!
    In looking over one option for a Random Value Generator, are there any others that are known, which would allow defining the characteristics of the output? Currently, the numeric-only option allows for digits 0 through 9.
    If I wanted to define a random-output for game-dice (4-sided, 6-sided, D8, D12, D20, etc), to get the result of a 4-sided die (a D4) I would have to use a "2 digit" random-value, divide by 25.


    Are there any other options you might be aware of to allow random-output without a secondary calculation? (And yes, the easy answer would be to just use 10-sided dice! LOL)
    OR! IF a suggestion could be made, because the Widget allows for an upper/lower case (which is not relevant to numbers), could that option be used to define the range of random-characters?
