Scriptwriting format. New element on same line

I am adapting a scriptwriting template for comics.
What I need to do is to have two different elements (Character name and Dialogue line) on the same line, separated by a tab, and not on a new line.

I cannot find how to do it: every change I make in editing the script format seems to always create the element on the new line.

Can anyone help?

Anyone tried to do this?

I have the same question. Looks like there are no answers as of yet. I’d even go for a new template that allows this.

Check out the “Stage Play (UK)” format that comes with Scrivener, it uses this kind of dialog. Or maybe some of the others fit even more.

For anyone coming across this thread, here is a more recent discussion with some good solutions.
