Re: New Ideas

I have to confess that I only skimmed some of the many replies.
Boy, I wish I were better at devising plots. I know that you have something here. What I can say is that you should never develop...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

The PDF progress bar ...

No, I do not think it is a Windows problem.

I tried four PDF drivers.
Fade In: No progress bar. I did not see anything, not even a blink. Of course, the file is created...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

Just to keep everyone informed ...

I am checking the Fade In (http://www.fadeinpro.com) board every day to see if Kent has released an update, which presumably will address the issue that we...

Re: Development Services

Cyfress does a good job of analyzing a screenplay. I have seen his comments through the years. If you want someone who will read your script closely and tell you what he thinks is working, or not...

Re: Sending FD doc without contract

I am a little confused here.

1. On the one hand, you cannot expect anybody to buy your script without reading it first. So is it the PDF/Final Draft issue that you are worried about? (See my comment...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

I relayed this issue to Kent Tessman.

He was not aware of the problem. He says that he thinks he has fixed it.

The fix will be in the next update.

He issues updates quite frequently, so it should...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

Well, crap!

Nothing is ever simple. I worked on the "Formatted Text" issue some more this morning.

Let me tell you what I know for sure, and then what I think.

WHAT I KNOW
I tried using a very...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

Getting back to Crayon's issue for a moment ...


I only ran a quick test. It looks as if just using the default template and saving it as a different template (under a new name) does not work. Your...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

Okay, sorry to be late in returning to the party.

Crayon is correct about what is happening. I will explain, in a moment, what I think is happening.

But a couple of other issues first.

1. No,...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

Please note that much of what I said in my replies turned out to be wrong. I mistakenly thought that exact format was retained in Formatted Text, because my own customized template (Bells & Whistles)...

Re: Fade In problem

I have sent iknownuffin a PM about this.

Unfortunately, I did not check the board over the weekend (a dozen lashes!).

I will report back here when we get this solved. :)

Re: Fade In problem

Hah, hah! So true. :)

I sent a report to Kent about this. He answered back that he wanted to know if it happened again, so that he could investigate further.

So post any problems here.

Re: Fade In problem

Tom,

Sorry to come in late here. I am glad that the reboot solved your problem.

That was a weird thing, yes.

I am wondering whether the previous PDF file (which you created) was the cause of...

Re: StoryRocket

Cynthia, I thought I recognized your name, and I checked your old posts. I was right.

I am an old guy (ancient!), so I will speak freely.

Your many questions indicate clearly to me that you are a...

Re: Final Draft v8 Issue Question

My German teacher, who was a marvelous lady from the old European tradition, used to say, "It is a poor craftsman who blames his tools."

Re: Can brief, inconsequential dialogue be put into action?

All I can say is that you should follow whatever style manual is standard for you.

Re: Final Draft v8 Issue Question

The upgrade price of Final Draft 11 is $80 (rounding up), as is the cost of Fade In. (Subsequent upgrades of Fade In have been free.) The Final Draft website is not clear whether someone with version...

Re: Final Draft v8 Issue Question

Yeah, this is the bottom line to the whole discussion. Just try it for yourself.

I would just point out one thing that I did not make really clear before. If you are thinking about working with...

Re: Can brief, inconsequential dialogue be put into action?

Proper punctuation is simply:Officer Doolally said: "I'm gonna shoot you dead, Miss Poppycock, and there ain't a goddam thing that anyone can do to stop me."
The final period in the quote functions...

Re: Final Draft v8 Issue Question

I will just add this to what Will said, but of course I do not know what else he might have wanted to say. These are just my own thoughts.

Re: Can brief, inconsequential dialogue be put into action?

I think you let a comma get wild here. I don't think you meant to have a comma after Poppycock.

In any case, the British standard, as far as I know, is to use quotes in a logical way. If the final...

Yeah, that is what I thought you meant.

You are correct that it is a peculiar standard. I do not like it, and I avoid it by either italicizing individual words instead of putting them into quotes,...
