Importing from Final Draft

Half done with a script in Final Draft (50-ish pages, too much to retype) and I’d love to be able to continue the draft in Scrivener. Is it best to save my FD script as an RTF, then open it in Scrivener? I’ve tried this, and it opens with some capitalization issues, but those are easy enough to fix – I’m just wondering if there’s a better way.

Importing from Final Draft is definitely a tricky one, I’m afraid. So tricky, I’ll leave it to other FD users to see if any have a good solution… :slight_smile:

It is quite a bit painful. In the end, I had to recreate the proper formatting manually. But only after opening the thing in TextEdit and savong it using another enconding since somehow FD doesn’t use the standard from my Mac.
