Tried to open a project and got the message the first poster quotesd: can't load because project was created using a newer version. But when I click on CHECK ...

Re: Latest WIN beta won't open file created in last beta

Thanks to both of you! That worked. I'd put a lot of work into that file so I waas worried I'd lose it.

Now you see the final 3.0 won't open files created in a beta like mine? So how do we open them when 3.0 comes out?

How do I view page numbers?

I'm writing a play in the latest ver of Scriv/Windows. I would like to be able to view my draft as pages, preferably with page numbers in the header or footer. I've searched around and can't find a way to do this. Scriv will give me stats on the number of words, a much less useful feature, but how c...

Font changes on parts of stage directions

But when I save a file and later re-open it, stage directions or portions of stage directions are now in the Bodoni MT Poster Compressedfont, which is hard even to read. Sometimes it...
