A "How Do I" Question: COLOR

Postby Thomas » Dec 22, 2009 5:10 pm

I purchased this software after mucking about with FD for a bit. What attracted me to MMS was the navidoc panel. I write using a 37 inch hi-def TV for a monitor, which makes the navidoc pretty much perfect.

One thing I noticed when comparing the two programs was that FD had an option where yew could not only set the font for an element, but also the COLOR. Granted, this would be very rarely used, but I did create a comic book template with FD that used color and I think it worked well, being as it was for a comic book.

I see in the top menu that yew can add buttons for red, blue, and green text. (Which is what I was using.) Is there a way to preset an element for a specific color so clicking the menu button is not necessary?

Unfortunately, you cannot do that in Screenwriter 6. I have added that feature to our Screenwriter 7 wish list as a suggestion.
