Re: Simultaneous dialogue

'K, got that now.

The only remaining problem is, changing the character name margins from 3 inches to 2 inches changes it everywhere in the document, not just in the simultaneous dialogue sections.

Re: Simultaneous dialogue

Thanks for the help. I'm getting closer! I was compiling to the Project format, which is "US Stage Play." I tried compiling to "Script or Screenplay," and now it's kinda working. But you can see, not quite. The character names are crowded. Screen Shot 2019-05-06 at 9.55.18 AM.png...

Simultaneous dialogue

A major missing feature for playwrights and screenwriters seems to be the ability to properly format dialogue that's spoken at the same time. To adhere to standard script formatting, such dialogue should appear side-by-side, but Scrivener doesn't offer this.

Re: Unnecessary (Continued)'s

Here's a fix that Keith passed me: 1. In Compile, Ctrl-click on "US Stage Play" in the list of Formats. 2. Select "Edit Format...". 3. In the list on the left in the new options that appear, select "Text Layout". 4. Under "Scriptwriting" on the right, click on...

Unnecessary (Continued)'s

When using the "Stage Play (US)" template, after compiling, I get lots of unnecessary (Continued)'s at the top of pages. Like when a character stops speaking at the bottom of one page, there's often a "CHARACTER (Continued)" at the top of the next page, followed immediately by my...
