I am writing a screenplay. I have created an outline using index cards. I have the cards open on the left side of my window and I have split the screen so that on the right side I have a screenplay document open. Using the up and down buttons in the top right corner of the screenplay window I can “tab” up and down, which gets me to a page connected to each index card.
I have written two scenes which correlate to two index cards. But the two scenes behave as if they are two different documents. How do I connect the two scenes? How do I make a continuous screenplay document AND keep the functionality of the index cards?
Last semester I wrote a screenplay with Scrivener as a separate single document and I had an outline which was also a single document made of index cards, but I did not link the screenplay to the index cards. Hence, I was not taking full advantage of the index card tool. I can do index cards OR I can do screenplay. How do I integrate them?
Ultimately I need to print one long continuous screenplay. Also I need to be able to edit within the screenplay, not just the screenplay pages linked to each index card.
