I’m trying out Scrivener for the 30 day trial and I want to use it to write plays. It’s a bit confusing though because how do I know when I’m writing in the different elements? (stage direction, character, dialog, etc). In Final draft for example, there would be a little drop box that tells you what element you’re on. There doesn’t seem to be for Scrivener unless I’m overlooking something?
I went under Text–>scriptwriting–>script settings, but have no idea how selecting the elements can affect changing the elements on the actual manuscript.
Or would I have to format everything myself, which would defeat the purpose and I might as well use word?
Thanks in advance.
(also, is there a way to view the mss on a preview page instead of just seeing it as one long piece of text, ie broken down into pages? Thanks)
