Is it possible to make a custom scriptwriting format which allows for dialogue with inline parentheticals? This is a commonplace convention in published scripts (as in working scripts from Samuel French and Dramatist’s Play Service, as well as scripts typeset for general readers).
I can’t figure how it can be done, though. Here is an example of what I mean:
To get this, I imagined one might be typing something like:
<characterName> TAB <dialogue> TAB <parenthetical> TAB <dialogue> TAB <parenthetical> TAB <dialogue> RETURN
But right now it is looking to me like inline parentheticals are impossible to achieve, because in the Tab/Return setting for elements under Tabbing After Typing, I must choose between i) indicating I want to stay in-line by inserting a/some character(s) and ii) switching to a different element which automatically inserts a carriage return. To achieve the above, it seems to me that I need to be able to do both these things (i.e. specify stay in-line but also change elements).
Am I missing something that would enable me to get the script formatting I am aiming for?
