Cleaning up Imported Scripts

Cleaning up an Imported Script SCRIPTIGO PRO

The Fountain script format follows industry standards for formatting and sometimes imported scripts don't adhere to it. Scripts imported from poor quality PDF files can also produce unexpected results. Scriptigo does its best to fix these inconsistencies and errors, but you may have to correct line breaks or text formatting yourself if it wasn't correctly set up in the original file. Open the script in editing mode to correct these issues.

NOTE: You can use the Find and Replace feature to clean up PDFs that won't process cleanly. Searching for "\n" (without the quotes) will find all returns and searching for "\t" (without the quotes) will find all tabs. With a few carefully crafted search and replaces, you can quickly clean up your script formatting.
