Screenplay Autofill request 2008

Would you consider improving Scrivener's Autofill feature so it works exactly like Final Draft? I know -- Scrivener is not a dedicated screenplay program. So we have to use Final Draft (or something like it) in addition to Scrivener. Which makes it pretty important to us that typing a scene in Scriv...

Re: Screenwriter Desire

Now how close - and how desirable for screenwriters, are these functions?) IMHO, the most desirable functions for professional screenwriting that Scrivener lacks are (in order of importance): (1) Page break indicator with page length control. It's vital to know the length of your scenes and sequenc...

Re: Binder sync on Cmd-[

FWIW, I created a QuicKey macro that adds a "Reveal In Binder" keystroke whenever I use CMD-[ or CMD-] for Back or Forward. Works great -- syncs the Binder as I navigate.

Re: line numbering please!

Actually, after reading this post, I have looked into this... It would be quite nice to have line numbering for poets, I guess. ...if I did look at this, should the line numbers count every line (even blank lines) or only lines with actual text on them? If you work that out, would it be possible to...

Re: Default Font weirdness

Thanks for the response. Courier Final Draft is active, installed and working.

I used Edit Scrivenings and Convert Formatting to set them back to Courier Final Draft. If it happens again, I'll try to provide more clues. Hopefully, it was a one-time mistake on my part.

Re: Default Font weirdness

Yesterday, I had dozens of documents displayed in Courier Final Draft.

Today, they are all in Times. All of them. Even the ones in the Trash.

Is there a pilot error that could easily cause this?

Is there an easy way to revert it?

Thanks.

Default Font weirdness

Scriv 1.11 on Tiger. I have default font set for Courier Final Draft(Surprising, no?) in notes, Screenplay, index cards. Worked on it yesterday, everything was fine. Today, I open the file and all my documents are displayed in Times. I go to Prefs, and my default fonts are still set correctly. I res...

Re: Binder sync on Cmd-[

The FAQ doesn't really answer the core design issue. When you use Document>Split, the editor shows the new split document, and the binder syncs to it. Based on that behavior, when you back out to the previous document using CMD-[, the binder should sync to the previous document. Note that I'm not ar...

Binder sync on Cmd-[

Is this the way it's supposed to work? If I click a document A in the binder, then split the document using selection for title, Scrivener creates the new document (B), sets its title and highlights it in the binder. If I press CMD-[ to back out to the original document, it shows the document, but t...

Re: Note trick

I wish that Scivener would append a link to the bottom of the note, pointing to the document the note references. That way, whenever you open the note, you can see what document it refers to. It would also speed up note-taking, because you just CMD-L, type your note, click the link, and you're back ...

Re: Project Templates (new assistant)

I'd suggest a "Business" category.
Reports, White Papers, Business Plans, Performance reviews -- all things that can be improved with Scrivener.

Re: Duplicate w/o text?

KB wrote:Nope, it's a minor bug - I've just fixed this for 1.2, so that it forces a save if necessary before duplicating - until then, just make sure you hit cmd-S before duplicating a file you have just created/edited.


That explains why it went away, too.

Many Thanks!

Re: Duplicate w/o text?

I'm not seeing this behaviour in the 1.12 beta Another symptom: When I duplicate the one-line document, its icon has lines on it showing that it contains text. If I drag it in the binder, it updates as a blank icon. Does 1.12b do that? The 1.12 beta has been rock-stable for me so far - might be wor...

Duplicate w/o text?

Is this a bug or a feature? I created a document in v1.11, and typed a single line in the main window (not in Synopsis), to be used as a section heading. I clicked on the icon in the binder and changed the label. Then I duplicated using Cmd-D, and the copy had no text in its main window . It's repea...
