I’ve been using Scrivener since January for a novel, and love the software, but am now interested in using it to draft a new stage play. I’ve been using Final Draft for years, but find it very limited.
For the Stage Play US Format, I like that I can use auto-complete to fill in a character name for a piece of dialogue, but when I hit “enter” after the character name appears, the screen suddenly jumps to show the start of the scene instead of the spot where I’m actually writing. If I just go ahead and type, the display adjusts to show me the correct location and the text goes in the right place. So functionally, the auto-complete does work, as along as I ignore the screen for a second and just start typing. But it’s oddly disorienting and annoying, and gets in the way of a smooth writing process.
