How to select Novel, TV, and Screenplay?

Hi there

I'm new to the concept of using software for writing Novels and Screenplays. In an attempt to 'test the water', I've downloaded the TRIAL version of MMSW6. My interest is in writing Novels, Screenplays and TV scripts.

In the TRIAL version I've got, there is no sign of a format for Novel writing, nor one for a TV script. Could someone kindly tell me how to easily select and switch between these various formats? :(

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 prepopulated templates for a variety of television shows as well as educational templates. Just select one of them, choose whether to include user lists (predefined locations and characters for a specific show for example) and see your document magically change to the new format.
