Re: Scrivener slows way down. Logs show font issue.

And another error popped up:

LLVM Profile Error: Failed to write file "default.profraw": Read-only file system

Puzzling...

Scrivener slows way down. Logs show font issue.

It suddenly slowed down when I type in Scrivener, taking about one second per letter typed. I checked the logs, and here's what I found: 2020-08-10 11:43:14.768 Scrivener[3525:55180] CoreText note: Client requested name ".SFNS-Regular", it will get Times-Roman rather than the intended font...

"First Document Is Title Page" Compiling for Final Draft - Stopped Working

I was changing all sorts of things to try to change the font in footnotes, but don't know why that might have stopped the "First Document is Title Page" setting from working when compiling for Final Draft. This imports the title page in Final Draft from your first document. This has always...

Re: Screenwriting Elements change on their own

I don't use anything unusual, other than this is a template I've set up myself. The lines that shift are almost always Dialogue lines becoming Character lines. Sometimes a Character line will become a Dialogue line, but that's far less common. Another oddity with script elements is that the various ...

Re: Screenwriting Elements change on their own

Most of the time, there are no comments or footnotes involved. The text changes to another story element on its own, most often the last line of a document -- but certainly not always.

Re: Screenwriting Elements change on their own

Yes, that is a very clear and easy to reproduce problem, I’ll let Keith know about it. We got a report about this (perhaps from the same OP) but haven’t managed to get a reproduction. I’d have never thought to only select up to the last letter of the dialogue like that! Well, it often happens to th...

Index Cards Arranged by Tags - Feature Requests

You know what I'd love to see with Index Cards in the Arranged by Card view? 1) A way to see the index cards by Tags, not just by Labels. Most scenes and chapters have more than one person in them, so I need to be able to track by character tags, reading along a line to see what's happening to that ...

Re: Index Cards With Only Titles?

That sounds brilliant! And I couldn't do it! Preferences...Index Cards...Fonts... could change color but it wouldn't take effect. Preferences...Index Cards...Color... could change the background to black, but then the text automatically switches to white. Or is there another way? Or some other hack?...

Index Cards With Only Titles?

I'm working to restructure a script and find that using index cards is very messy when both title and text is displayed. Is there a way to show only the titles? This wasn't possible a few years ago, according to an old post, but it sure would be helpful now. I could use the outline view as a workaro...

Re: Screenwriting Elements change on their own

Interesting. If you wouldn’t mind, can you be more specific about your workflow? Do you outline/write in Scrivener, then copy to Writer Solo, then to Final Draft ? How and why would you move back and forth between Scrivener and Writer Solo? And avoid formatting issues? Uh-oh. Looks like that company...

Re: Screenwriting Elements change on their own

I avoid problems with Scrivener's script-processor by writing and editing script pages in WriterSolo, the free, non-cloud version of WriterDuet.


I can't add another step. I now write in Scrivener then transfer to Final Draft and most problems are solvable.

Re: Screenwriting Elements change on their own

Here's a variation of the problem that's repeatable: Go into a Scriptwriting document. Make a page of lines: Character, Dialogue, etc. Highlight as one group: a Character, a line of dialogue, another Character and another line of dialogue. Be certain the the final paragraph mark of the last Dialogue...

Re: Screenwriting Elements change on their own

As I keep working on this project, documents I'm not looking at will shift. It might happen 10 times in a day. If I re-open the project -- sorry, I misspoke -- this does not fix the problem. The following examples all happened today. The character name CODY has shifted so it's flush left because it ...

Screenwriting Elements change on their own

Dialogue script elements can sometimes change on their own into a different element. I think this only affects Dialogue, which can become Character or Stage Direction elements. How it happens: I'm working in one document in a project, go work on a different one, come back and a line of dialogue has ...

Changing script settings removes formatting

Here are the steps to see what I mean. 1. Make a document in scriptwriting format. 2. Type some stuff: character scene heading, action line, character name, dialogue. You only need one of each. 3. Bold a couple of words in each. 4. Go to the Script Settings and change the font for all to Times New R...
