Re: The Legacy Glitch

The way the crash gets triggered the most frequently is having one or more long paragraphs (usually over a page in length). This is more common in stage plays where there can be monologues that go on for a while. Please break up any long paragraphs with something like Action and see if the program r...

Re: Font size

Currently, there is no way to change the Help Text font. This is a known limitation that will be fixed when Dramatica Story Expert for Windows becomes available (unknown ETA).

Re: Font size

I'm having problems with the font size within the query section. Specifically the help, context etc. section. I've used the set font feature within the edit tab, and used different fonts and sizes. It seems to work...until I select the different tabs within the help system whereupon it reverts back...

Dale, We haven't seen anything like what you're describing with Screenwriter 6 on Windows 10 from our tests or reports from the field.

Re: Exporting from MMS6 to Final Draft .fdx format

The .fdx file is a format from our competitor, Final Draft. You can export to a number of scheduling software apps in Screenwriter under File > Export to… Once in the scheduling app, you can usually create an export file to a budgeting app; a budget is dependent on the schedule.

Re: Highlighting characters

Unfortunately, there is no workaround at this time for the Windows version. If you have access to a Mac, you can export to PDF there and retain the text color in the PDF.

Re: Auto Correct

Thank you for your answer. I'm on a MAC -- Tools -- Edit User Dictionary -- choose USERDICT.LXA -- make changes and nothing happens. Still auto corrects to incorrect. I can't find where I could edit the file outside of MMS. I suppose I've developed a glitch. MMS has been on my machine for a REALLY ...

Re: Document Analysis

cmw7,

The report you are referring to can be found File > Print > Dialogue > Dialogue with Reference Page Numbers and Statistics.

Also, you might want to click on Help > Check for Updates so that you can install the latest version (6.0.10.165).

Re: MMS 6 Not Working with Dragon Naturally Speaking 11

That was our experience when we tested Screenwriter with Dragon NS 8. The basic dictation works fine, but the navigation and text selecting commands seemed to be wonky. You may have to use a hybrid style of dictating, whereby you dictate the text but keep your hands on TAB and ENTER to navigate the ...

Re: Transition Scene window is quirky

When this happens with any pop-up list in Screenwriter, it means a paragraph, usually Action, was set to the wrong element type by mistake. My guess is that somewhere in your script, you have a paragraph of Action set as Transition accidentally. Once you find the errant paragraph — it should be fair...

Re: Problems in 4D Outline

The only problems I know of are when running Outline 4D on a 64-bit operating system, but usually running as administrator solves that problem. When the program crashes, does it give you a chance to generate or save a log file of the crash?
