FDX Export Lacks Page Numbers

When Exporting a ScriptMode document to FDX, the resulting file does not display page numbers when opened by outside editors like Final Draft and WriterSolo.

Is there a user-addressable setting to enable page numbers on export?

Re: Sticky project note / Post-it / reminder /etc

Open your applications folder and look for an app called Stickies. It does post it notes on the Mac.

Re: (Screenwriting Mode) Auto-Detect INT and EXT scene heading tags when typed in Action

AFAIK, you can't achieve this natively in Scrivener. If you look at the Completion List in Screenplay Settings, you'll see that there is no way to use an auto-complete to change the element type. I do heartily recommend Keyboard Maestro to solve this problem. Look at how easy it is: https://i.postim...

Re: Potential Scrivener Buyer/User: Moving Text Between Scrivener and Movie Magic Screenwriter

Hi, I'm a pro screenwriter. I use a Mac, and although I own MMS, I only use it when I'm hired by a company that requires it. That being said, here are some things to consider. IIRC, MMS will import and export FDX files. That can be your exchange format with Scrivener, and it will retain your formatt...

Check the Zengobi user forum. There are quite a few examples from teachers, scientists, deisgners, etc as they discuss their issues.

Re: Pasting screenplay pages

Thanks for your suggestion, but it doesn't apply to this situation. I'm copying between two Scrivener documents in the same project. Both documents are in screenplay format. When I paste, all the screenplay formatting is lost. I'm wondering if this is expected behavior, or if my copy of Scrivener is...

Two Help Menus?

I'm running Scrivener 3.2.2 on MacOS 10.14.6

The Scrivener menu bar has two Help menus next to each other. The left one has the usual items. The right has a single entry "Scrivener Help." Is this customary, or should I reinstall or take other steps?

Pasting screenplay pages

If I copy a couple of pages of screenplay text in a Scrivener project, open a new screenwriting document and paste, none of the formatting is preserved. Is this expected behavior? Is copy/paste not supported for screenplay pages?

Re: Milanote

I love Curio and use it for every single project I do, from writing scripts to planning a birthday party.

In every screenplay project, I embed a Scrivener document as part of building the project.

Re: Omnioutliner: Not sure what I did.

Have you tried Dynalist? I've been using OmniOutliner for many years, but have recently started doing more and more work in Dynalist. It also exposrts to OPML that works well in Scrivener.

Re: suggestion: conditional folder/document icons

You can create a workaround with Keyboard Maestro. Make a macro that pops up a palette containing the status metadata, and on your selection, have the macro both set the status and set the icon. You might be able to do it using AppleScript to make it faster, but you can have KM pull down menus if it...

To turn the page white, adjust the Composition Mode prefs under Appearance: https://i.postimg.cc/PJ808f84/2020-12-03-14-41-11-486.png To see page breaks, you have to be in Page View, which is not avaialble in Composition Mode.
