Is there a way to turn an NPC into a PC that I'm missing? Currently I have to add them to a script and load the script into the stage. Tried moving them from the Cast page to my personal folder to load into PCs, but you can't put the actors created with the NPC type into PCs. Looked for a way to change NPC to PC in a bunch of settings, and couldn't find it. Copying doesn't give the option to change character "type".

If it does't exist, time for another feature request, I guess.

If this is for Pathfinder 2e or Starfinder, PCs and NPCs are built fundamentally differently, so there would be no way to directly convert between them anyway. It's not like Pathfinder 1e, they don't share the same basic mechanics.

Once you have started a session, a Cast Member can be added directly to the Stage using their three dot menu, without having to add them to a Script first.

This is something that is implemented in the backend, but it hasn't yet been exposed through the UI. So it's eminently doable and definitely on the todo list, but we just haven't gotten to it yet.
