I work mostly in Final Draft 8, and was anxious to put one of my screenplays in, so I was disappointed that the IMPORT feature in Scrivener 1.8 Beta did not allow for the RTF import- only the TXT, DOCX, HTM and DOC files
I discovered that right-clicking in the Scrivener SCREENPLAY FORMAT TEMPLATE brought up a sub-menu with ADD>EXISTING FILES which under “files of types” had an “Any ()” option which DOES allow the import of RTF (as well as PDF and others)
My screenplay is now in Scrivener (with a few formatting errors – ALL CAP issues) but nonetheless, the script is in!!!
I am now a happy camper.
Perhaps this was obvious to most of the testers, or most of them work with other formats than screenplays, but I hope it helps at least one person
Also, though it stripped some formatting (bullets from a list), I was able to drag .rtf files into the Binder directly from File Explorer and they imported, so that may be another workaround in the meanwhile. (This is for 1.9.)
