About Doodlepad

Doodlepad is a whiteboard addon for drawing doodles on your screen for use with explaining fight strategies, making commentary about videos or just doodling. Doodles can be shared across a party, raid or guild scope in real-time.


  • Draw images, strategic maps or just doodles using vector graphics
  • Add text, rectangles, circles and raid icons to your drawings
  • Seamless resizing of any doodle, old or new.
  • Custom colors for everything!
  • Optional instance map overlays for explaining raid fights
  • Storyboard for managing your saved doodles
  • Broadcast to your raid, guild, party or just someone private.

How to doodle

Type /pad [target] to open a doodlepad. If target is either "raid", "party" or "guild", your doodles will be shared with other players in those places. If target is a player of the same faction, the doodle will be shared with him/her. Otherwise, it'll just be a doodle for you to see.

If you are using a tablet to draw or just prefer the tool buttons, they're at the bottom left corner of the pad for your leisure - otherwise:

  • Use the left mouse button to doodle and the mouse wheel to change pen color.
  • Use Control + left click to place a target icon.
  • Use Control + mouse wheel to switch target icon.
  • Double-click on a position to insert a line of text.
  • Use right click to undo your last stroke, icon or text.
  • Use shift + right click to wipe the pad.
  • If you are unhappy with the size of the doodle pad, you can re-size it as you see fit, and any doodles you have drawn will be re-sized to fit your new doodle pad's size.

Instance map overlays

You can use the in-game instance maps as a replacement for the white background when doodling by clicking the map icon on your doodle pad. All Cataclysm instances as well as the 8 Icecrown Citadel maps are included. If you wish to only use a portion of a map as your background, you can use your mouse to draw a rectangle of the area you wish to display. Instance maps and map zoom will be broadcast to other players as well (provided they have Doodlepad rev. 43 or newer).
Pre-cataclysm note: Icecrown instance maps are found by scrolling UP, cataclysm maps are found by scrolling DOWN. If you are (still) playing the WotLK version of WoW, you'll just see blank pages instead of the Cataclysm maps.


All your doodles get saved in the storyboard for any later use you might have for them
type /storyboard to bring up the storyboard. Here you can view, edit, copy and delete any previous doodles you've either created or received.


Do other players need Doodlepad installed to view doodles?
Yes, to receive doodles, players will need Doodlepad installed, preferably the same version as yourself.

Make sure you both have the latest version of Doodlepad, as there was a syntax revision in Doodlepad rev. 46.

Addon Packs Containing This...


  • #12

    its not worth downloading atm unfortunatly since it does not have the new raids, and bg's.  Would love it to get updated.  Would be a top contender for raiding guild addons.

  • #11

    Can add all battleground maps?

  • #10

    I was wondering as a feature request, if you could add a tab to the dungeon journal and save them as personal doodlesnotes (or better yet, sharable - but i'd be ok even if it was only personal)  See "Dungeon Jornal Enhanced" for what I mean by a notes tab, if that didn't make sense.  

    I guess what I'm asking is a file management system for saving the doodles other than the storyboard, (which I would definately want to keep).  Also a way to move them to and from storyboard / journal pages.

  • #9

    I seem to be having a problem with the shareing. In guild we can't start a session, do you plan on working on this part of the program?

  • #8

    hiya nice addon, was wondering if this is still getting updated and such.


    tried the latest version ingame and it seems like the sharing dont work.

  • #7
    I heart you mister/miss. :D
  • #6
    Very nice addon I am going to try and get everyone in my guild to download it
  • #4
    Have been playing around with this for a couple of days. Very very fun. A couple of features I would love to see:

    Have the original author's name somewhere.
    Have the title they named it transfer to your storyboard.
    Possibility of browsing people's storyboards by title and then viewing the ones you want.
    Along with that one, maybe an alert that someone has created a new doodle and you could click to bring up a list of their titles.
    A Minimap Icon.


  • #5
    Updating the reply here:
    Minimap icon: Done! Doodlepad plugs nicely into any LibDataBroker addon, which'll mean you can get a button for it either on your minimap or in whatever bad mod you use.
    Original author's name on doodles is done as well.

    Also, if you like this addon, don't forget to give it a vote!
