Or am I missing some combination of settings that will give me precise, countable screenplay pages in the editor that look identical to the compiled versions?

You would think that Scrivener could see you go into Script Mode and be like "I GOT THIS" and just make sure all the settings are standard and give you WYSIWYG. It could let you change away from them, of course, but getting the page to look and feel like the industry standard formatting should be out-of-the-box / default functionality.

FWIW, I keep my license of Final Draft current mostly for output. I've found that it produces the best PDF and FDX output of the available software on the Mac. FDX files from some of the other apps have had trouble being opened by studio budgeting and scheduling software.

L&L kindly added "Paste Text as Screenplay" feature which converts clipboard from Final Draft, FadeIn, MMScreenwriter, etc. to screenplay format. However, Scrivener copies RTF to clipboard, which FD can't figure out. WriterSolo is the only app I've found that can paste from Scrivener's clipboard and retain screenplay format.
