Re: Exporting to Final Draft Writer

If anyone else is having this problem -- this is a known bug in the current version of Final Draft Writer for iOS. As noted by the app store reviews, a ton of people can no longer use the "open in" function" to open FDX files in their eMail messages in Final Draft Writer. So, apparent...

Re: (Comic) Scriptwriting Discussion Thread

Hi Matthew, I'm using a custom playwriting template that -- like you -- I created on my Mac and copied over to iOS. I'm not getting the same tab/enter problems you're having. Maybe it's something in the specific style set not playing nice with iOS? In any case, if you have an external keyboard, have...

Re: Exporting to Final Draft Writer

Thanks for the reply on this. I'll do a reinstall of Final Draft Writer and see if I can get things to work. FDW has been incredibly buggy.

(And I got a save to iCloud button via a 3rd party Action Extension -- but you're right -- I can't drop it directly in the FD folder.)

Thanks again!

Exporting to Final Draft Writer

Is anyone having luck any luck using the "Open In" function to open a compiled .fdx file into Final Draft Writer on an iPad? When I do it, my iPad switches from Scrivener to Final Draft Writer, but my compiled document doesn't just isn't there. It's no biggie -- A work around is to save th...

Re: Screenwriting keyboard shortcut(s)

Hi Xof, If you hold down the Command key *while* editing a document in screenwriting mode, you'll get a display of all the shortcuts (two screens worth -- you have to swipe left to see them all)! That said, here they are: Command-Option-1: Scene Heading Command-Option-2: Action Command-Option-3: Cha...

Dual Dialogue

So, I imported a project from Final Draft into Scrivener for Mac, and then I used dropbox to sync it with my iPad Pro (my main writing machine). I noticed that existing dual dialogue is indicated by a dashed line around blue highlighted text. Great that this is preserved! Now, is it possible to crea...

Re: Keyboard navigation

swilcox, I'm getting mixed results: If I first select a project and then select a document with the binder using the keyboard, I have to manually touch the screen to edit the document. HOWEVER If I'm *already editing* a document and I use Command-Option-Up/Down Arrow to select a different document i...

Re: Creating a Line Break on iOS vs Mac Desktop

I noticed the same thing too. The workaround options seem to be: 1. Add a trailing space, then back up one character (just before the space) and hit return. This should maintain the same style element. 2. Hit return, and, when the element changes, use the menu / keyboard short cut to change it back....

Re: Entering Line Breaks in iOS [Control-Enter on Mac]

Just in case anyone else is screenwriting and trying to put line breaks in their dialogue on an iOS device, here's what I've found out so far: When entering dialogue, Control-Enter does *NOT* maintain dialogue styling like it does on a Mac. It switches to Action every time. Two work-arounds: 1) Add ...

Entering Line Breaks in iOS [Control-Enter on Mac]

Hello, Does anyone know if Scrivener for iOS supports entering line breaks? This is accomplished in the Mac version by pressing Control-Enter, which simply breaks the line instead of creating a new paragraph. I use this heavily with Scrivener's scriptwriting features, allowing for breaks and spacing...

Re: Lagging while typing

Hello, I just want to bump this topic. In Scapple, on a document with about 140 notes, i'm having lagging typing too. What's odd, though, like others have noted, as long as the note is just 1 line long (even the entire width of a 21" iMac screen) there is no lag whatsoever. However, a much shor...

Re: Writing in Fountain Syntax in Scrivener

Got it, and thanks for the reply, Amber. Compile/import/compile will work actually, because I don't want to monkey with formatting until much later in the game,

Cheers!
