Re: Any way to automatically page break on scene heading?

No workaround that I know of, sorry. I put this feature on the wish list long ago for MMS4, then for Screenwriter 6, and asked for it again during the beta process but it still hasn't been implemented. I know it's not a high priority item for anyone writing for the US market but (sadly) this page-br...

Hi bluebowls, to choose different templates for your text, go to the FORMAT menu, then LOAD STYLES FROM and choose TEMPLATE... Screenwriter will open a file dialog which lets you browse the included templates. There are blank templates for screenplays, stage plays, novels etc. and you will also find...

Re: Space after period

Did you check whether the 'Auto-Space sentences' option is set correctly? This is the only reason I can think of that screenwriter behaves this way. To check it, go to Tools->Options->Spelling (Tab) in Screenwriter 6 or File->Program Options->Spelling (Category) in MMS4. There is an option called 'A...

Re: Moving scenes without changing scene numbers?

You're right, I forgot about that. There is a way though: Instead of changing the element type to action, right click in the omitted scene heading again and select Override Scene Number (SW6) or double click the scene number (MMS4), then choose 'no numbering (shot)'. You will again be asked whether ...

Re: Moving scenes without changing scene numbers?

It's a little tricky but it can be done. I'm going to use your example, moving scene 34 in front of scene 22: ⋅ In your locked script, move scene 34 in front of scene 22. This will leave you, as you described, with a new scene 21A (the old 34), and an omitted scene 34. ⋅ In Scree...

Re: How do I change the font for entire screenplay?

In Screenwriter 6, open FORMAT -> ELEMENT STYLES via the top menu (ALT-M on Windows). The Element Styles window pops up with the font option about one third down the window. Select the font you wish to use, then click on the button beneath the font field labeled 'use this font for all elements'. A d...

Re: Draft revisions

In both MMS4 and Scrw6 go to the 'production' menu, click on 'auto revision' and select a color or create a user defined one. All changes to the script will be marked in the selected color until you deselect it again in the same menu.

Re: two extension

This applies to both Screenwriter 4 and 6: Add the first extension as you would normally do by pressing '(' after the character name. Select whichever extension you want to come SECOND. Then return to the character name, press '(' again but this time choose 'add as text'. You can then type a second ...
