Please consider automatically enabling Auto-Fill for SCENE, NAME and TRANSITION screenplay elements. IOW, when you create a new SCENE paragraph and type “I”, Auto-Fill will suggest “INT.” Or, if you make a new NAME paragraph and type “K”, Auto-Fill will offer a list of words starting with K.
The short reason is that Final Draft, MM Screenwriter, Nova Mind and others do it this way.
The practical reason is that it makes writing flow easier. This is one of the few ways that Final Draft’s writing experience is superior to Scrivener’s.
Yes, I know I can invoke Auto-Fill manually, but it adds a lot of keystrokes to have to do this each an every time I want it to look up a word. The point is to reduce keystrokes and maintain creative flow. Also, I can’t think of a case when I would NOT want Auto-Fill activated in SCENE, NAME and TRANSITION paragraphs.
(It would be even better if Scrivener kept track of separate lists from entries made in SCENE, NAME and TRANSITION paragraphs. FD, MMS, NM and other do this. Please think of this request as well)
Thanks for considering it. Keep up the good work.
