Re: Dramatica E-Mail Discussion List

Hi Chris, thanks for the support. The system should have immediately sent you a confirmation e-mail. The test sign-up I used worked fine, but it was not obvious the list was sending the request. The subject currently has "confirm..." followed by several alpha-numeric letters. I'm looking i...

Dramatica E-Mail Discussion List

Hi everyone. It seems that every so often a regretful reference to the former e-mail based Dramatica discussion list is made. Since its disappearance, several alternate substitutes have been attempted that ultimately evolved to the Google Communities discussion group. I feel that the Google Communit...

Re: Opinions, Questions, and Hunches on Dramatica Theory

Wow. I wish to preface my initial comments here by saying I have only scanned over what you have written and have not read it in its entirety... I'll need to set aside some quiet analytical reading time before a full-read will be possible. Meanwhile, two initial thoughts come to mind. 1st: Dramatica...

Re: Movie Magic won't open.

I've overheated and consequentially burned-out a few computers, so have had to install MMS a few times and have encountered the problem you describe. Here's what I will initially recommend: 1) Perform a complete uninstall of MMS. 2) Delete all files within your TEMP directories (there are usually mo...

Re: Font in PDF

I have just compared two PDFs. One PDF was exported from MMS, another contained the same text but was exported to PDF from MS Word using the plain Courier New font. The MMS exported PDF displays the Courier MMS font as is expected on my system. You may wish to verify your print settings. Go to TOOLS...

Re: Outline 4D 3.0+ Feature Requests

Hi Thomas. Apologies for the delay, I have a heavy load of college classes this semester (and am consequentially behind in all of my writing projects). I'm happy to share the file. Please send me an e-mail to buck415@gmail.com, and I'll reply with it as an attachment as soon as time permits. Later, ...

Hi Graham.

What workshop might that be?

I have three audio CD's about Writing Characters of the Opposite Sex, but wanted to know if there might be another worth my while investing in.

Thanks,
Buck

Pasting from MMS6 to Notepad - EOT and ENO codes?

I write with three programs open, Dramatica Pro, Outline 4D, and Movie Magic Screenwriter because I need to make constant updates between the three. When I copy from MMS6 and paste directly into Outline 4D, the font sizing transfers and I don't want that--I want Outline 4D to use its default font st...

Re: Scene & Sequel in Dramatica

Hi motormind. I have been reading about the techniques of Dwight Swain, in which he talks about setting up a Scene, which is followed by a Sequel, in which characters respond to what happened in the Scene. How does this relate to Dramatica? I had very similar struggles while attempting to understand...

Re: Main vs Impact Throughline

I need to add a disclaimer to the above bit I included using Armando's formulas... I didn't type that out manually, at least to get that result. I created a monstrously user-unfriendly spreadsheet with Dramatica definitions, mapped that to Theme Browser attributes, and mapped that to a sheet that in...

Thank you, that allowed me to look at Dramatica windows while replying... plus do a few more things. I'm going to address one quote out of order from the original post, responding to it at the end of this post.
