To which annoying bug in particular are you referring?
There's more than one???
The one I was referring to is viewtopic.php?f=54&t=53757
- it's the one that drove me very reluctantly away from Scrivener and back to Storyist (and Final Draft for my, er, Final Drafts).
I agree that Scrivener is fab when you're in the honeymoon period of PLANNING your writing and doing all the creative stuff leading up to actually writing a first draft. But the app's USP for me was always that you could do all that AND write your script within the same program.
Yes, the Scrivener screenwriting engine wasn't *quite* Final Draft - no dual dialogue for example (well, there's a workaround but it's a kludge and involves roundtripping the script to Scrivener's desktop app). But it also wasn't as temperamental as Final Draft iOS either and you could easily export the results to Final Draft iOS to create a PDF to deliver to your producer/director (Scrivener is no good for making script PDFs on its own cos it page-breaks the script in odd places).
But then iOS 12 came along and broke Scrivener for iOS's scriptwriting engine (I'd like to emphasize this was not at ALL L&L's fault!) producing the https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=53757
bug. And iOS 12 is getting on for a year old now (actually, that's going from the first public beta, I guess officially it's 7 months old) with still no sign of a fix for this GIANT annoyance - the kind of annoyance you don't want to deal with 200 times every day when you're working to someone else's deadline or in production!
You're right - L&L aren't screenwriters and Scrivener (certainly the iOS program) is therefore only secondarily
a screenwriting program, albeit an awesome one up until the advent of iOS 12.
And they're small and they can't do everything at once so I totally get why this should be a low-priority for them. But that bug is why I have now - regretfully - drifted away from Scrivener even though, like you popcornflix, I still love it deep in my heart. And I'm hopeful that one day, before I'm retired or dead, it will return to its former glory!
