Importing Finaldraft

I’m working in Finaldraft 7 and I’m having some trouble importing files to Scrivener.
It seems you can import them into the Research Section without losing formatting. But if you try to import into the Draft Section all the formatting is lost.
Any advice on how to handle this?
Thanks, as always.


It doesn’t make a difference where you import them. Make sure you save your script from Final Draft as .fcf (File Converter Format) and import that into Scrivener - Scrivener will match its elements with those set in the script settings panel.

The import and export for Final Draft 8 is far superior.

All the best,
