Issue with Screenplay format


I am using the screenplay format in Scrivener. When I started, there was a page under the ‘scene’ folder and when I wrote in it, I was able to define the text as being ‘action’, ‘character’, and other script elements. The script elements appeared in the footer. When I opened a new page under the ‘scene folder’, the script elements footer wasn’t there and all there was was the word count. I looked everywhere and I can’t seem to find a way to get the script elements functionality to work in any page but the one that already exists. Does anybody know how to fix this?



Hi, veralidaine, and welcome to the forum!

This thread might be of use.

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for your speedy reply! I read through that thinking that I had checked the format and it was in screenplay format because the little page icon was next to ‘screenplay’ but when I double checked and clicked it, the script elements footer returned. Thanks for your help!
