Re: Final Draft Script Formats (extras package)

I believe these are obsolete now. I'll take Keith's advice and use Scrivener's standard screenplay format with reliance on the baked-in FDX (or FCF) file format support for round-trips with Final Draft.

Ken Wilbur's background is in psychology. Jargon layers plague academic literature as a rule, placing precision over readability.

Or at least, that's the excuse I make for him.

On QuickSilver: Coming from linux, I used to use the Terminal constantly to perform menial tasks on my Mac. It's just my most comfortable environment.

Have you tried ProFont ? It was designed specifically for fixed-width coding on the Mac, based on Monaco. I've used it for HTML coding for years (and at one point plaint text email viewing), and I love it. I did but I don't recall exactly what prevented me from using it. Most fonts failed me over t...

Bitstream Vera Sans Mono

I spend most of my time in terminals and text editors as a programmer, and Vera is the first font to make me give up Misc Fixed in almost 20 years.

TextExpander is the current darling. There are others, perhaps. But it'll work globally in every application on your mac.

I'm not sure which version it originated in, since I've seen it since I started using scrivener in 1.03, but in fullscreen there is a definite subtle background color difference between files. Perhaps your color settings have been changed such that you don't see the difference? You can even hit comm...

The latest 1.1beta 1.07b added a keyboard shortcut to an existing feature which might approximate what you're looking for. "Typewriter Scrolling" keeps the cursor in place (centered vertically), and scrolls the document. • Added cmd-ctrl-T as keyboard shortcut for Typewriter Scrolling

The crazy decimals are just caused by normalising the attributes for RTF. Basically, when you set certain attributes of text and then save the text as RTF, the RTF format alters certain numbers fractionally. Ahh, thanks for the explanation. On a side note, I'm sure the RTF format has a GoodReasonTM...

I realize this may be a fool's errand because FD is so quirky about importing (even its own exports), and some of the elements may simply never survive the trip, but this effort may save time for some of us. With the work Keith has already done to accommodate our tiny minority of screenwriters, and ...

Saving scriptwriting templates to file sometimes mangles the numeric values. For instance 1.62 becomes 1.6200000047683716, or 2.62 becomes 2.619999885559082, or 2.9 becomes 2.9000000953674316. Operation doesn't appear to be affected, but it's kind of strange.

Re: FD Template

Excellent template PrimitiveWorker. Keith has just put the latest version up - 1.06. It includes a Final Draft Screenplay format. Would you mind verifying the new version for any differences with yours and post the revised version - if any revision is needed, to the Zen for Scrivener thread and I w...
