Problem exporting to Montage

When I try to export my screenplay formatted text into Montage as plain text, certain characters such as apostrophes and “…” are being converted into symbols. If I export as rich text, the punctuation appears properly in Montage, but when I export as rich text or pdf from Montage the punctuation is left out altogether. Any ideas?

Plain text export can cause problems with certain symbols, because it uses Unicode, including those you mention. No problem though - in the Export Draft sheet, in the Text Options tab, just choose to convert typographer’s quotes to straight quotes and ellipses to three periods etc. This will ensure they are plain-text compatible.
