We Lost One :(

Couldn't have been any more than a day or two ago. A contributor to these forums, Kat Yares, is deceased. :( It was sudden. Congestive heart failure. No one saw it coming. Here is a link to her amazon page. Many of these works were done with software supported in this forum. http://www.amazon.com/K...

Re: Formatting Question

What is your concern here? Is this a spec script? If you want to know how long it would run, read the dialog aloud and record it. That will give you a sense of the real screen time, which is what is really important when you consider page count (one page equals one minute of screen time). Very ofte...

Re: Outline 4D 3.0+ Feature Requests

I find the All Tracks in Document and Track Sets control panel to be annoyingly clumsy to use. When I add a new track or track set, the new one appears below the selected item. I create a custom name, and then the scrolling window containing it scrolls to the top. That causes me to have to scroll d...

Re: .MMSW and .SCW

The .MMSW supports features new in v6, such as outlining and note categories, etc. Ummm... Okay then. That answers THAT question. :) I guess what I am wondering is why we can't save directly to .SCW format. We can import and export, but even importing, if we try to save, we just have to export it a...

Re: A question about the upgrade

Hello, Lighthope.

I like that name. And I do wish we could have seen more of him/her/it than we did. Sorceress was there in abundance, but Lighthope was elusive! :(

Re: Problems with RTF import/export

I am a script translator and a new user of Screenwriter. I am generally very pleased with the program, but for technical reasons I need to be able to export the scripts to RTF and reimport them into Screenwriter. I've never had luck with the IMPORT feature myself, though unlike yew, it is not somet...

I Been "Using Screenwriter" (And No, This is NOT Spam)

Well, then again, maybe in a way it is? But I in an acceptable way. What I am trying to say is this: I've been working on an original comic book series, "The VOICE Beyond." The first two issues are now complete and online. I wrote them both with Screenwriter. The series is about a special ...

Feature Request

Just today I found the "Export to Screen Writer" parameters and that looks interesting. I don't know why I never noticed it before? It looks like it could make exporting to screen writer very useful, indeed! But still there has been something bugging me about this program and also today I ...

Re: New element types; alternate redline formatting

Final Draft allows yew to create elements. One of the good things about that program.

I wish there was some way to combine the best of both of these programs into one, solid screen writing program. That would be kewl.

Re: Initial Thoughts on Outline 4D

Try going to Tools > Outline 4D Options, and deselecting the option to save every 15 minutes. That worked for me. I wanted to keep the backup feature ON, but the problem was even if yew made NO changes, the pop up about saving still came onto the screen. The program goes the 15 minutes but does NOT...
