Default Re: Hashtag symbol in Final Draft on Imac

Belay my last. I found where the issue lies. Open Final Draft and choose the “Document” tab. Choose “Macros.” There, you will see how Final Draft for Mac treats the function keys. That’s why you get an “I/E” for Opt-3.

Scroll down the list. Opt-0 is open. You can paste your copied hashtag there, or use “Opt-3” and you ought to get a hashtag to enter. This is how you can have a hashtag within Final Draft for Mac. It works in my Final Draft for Mac. If you ever change the “Set Font” for any reason, or each time you open Final Draft, you may or may not need to do this again, IDK, but I hope this solves your problem!

The next time you go out to buy a screenwriting program (the next time Final Draft wants to charge for an upgrade), consider buying Fade In. It allows your Apple keyboard to behave normally, for one thing, and Fade In also exports to .fdx file format (Final Draft), among many others.

Check out how it compares to Final Draft 11 here.

Go to the Fade In Download page. Take it for a test drive on your new (to you) computer. I use it almost exclusively; I like it very well, and so do many others. I believe you’ll like it, too.
