I saved a screenplay in PDF format using anothe rprogram.
Imagine my dismay when I tried to import it into Scrivener but could not!
I tried converting it into a RTF format file and it came out awful!
Please incorporate that feature into Scrivener!

I'd suggest exporting from the other program to a different format. PDF is a non-editable format by design, and as a result any method for extracting the text is almost guaranteed to lose important formatting.
