I feel like I have to be missing something.

When my players run their sheets the die icon on spells like Chain Lightning are for the save the target needs to make. We don't see a simple click to roll the damage.

Am I missing a setting? It seems weird for the die icon to be a saving throw on the sheet of the caster.

The GM can allow the player to roll against the saving throw DC of the NPC. This reduces the number of rolls the GM needs to make. It does require switching around the success/failure conditions.

It'd be great to also be able to roll damage as well, with a crit option just like weapons.

Crits in PF2 are simply doubled.

Ah, they're doubled as in dice rolled then doubled or doubled as in double the amount of dice is rolled? Regardless, I'd just like an easy single click to get damage, whether crit or not. Sounds like I'm not alone here.

The default is roll then double, with doubling the amount of dice allowable with GM permission.

Mind you, HLO doesn't appear to do it that way but since I'm the GM in my game I gave it permission.
