Hi. I am an enthusiastic Scrivener 2 user and have a special problem.
I am taking a course in scriptwriting in Spanish and using Scrivener for a project.
I am now working on a small script using the incorporated scriptwriting program and would like to access where the pop-up transition, day/night, etc. choices are to add some in Spanish to save time. (Corta a: instead of Cut to: for example)
But I can’t find where they are and am not sure I can even do this.
I could use Screenwriter to do this but would like to keep it all in one program.
Is this possible and if so, how do I do it?
Thanks for any help on this.
OK. Here I am again answering my own question.
I started digging around and discovered Project>Auto-complete list. It does exactly what I wanted.
Sorry. But maybe this helps someone with the same question.
Just to add to this, there are also special lists for different script elements, which you can see if you go into Format>Scriptwriting>Script Settings… and click the Auto-Complete tab there. You can set the options there so that words are automatically added to your project list, or that they take words from your project list; you can also have them only offer words from that element-specific list, so that you don’t end up with suggestions that are irrelevant–e.g. you might want “Celso’s House” as a scene heading suggestion but not as a character suggestion.
Thanks for that suggestion.
One question: is what you indicate project specific?
I would like to make a template to use only with scripts I write in Spanish. I ask this before I start deleting all the fade in, cut to, fade to black and change them to Spanish. I would then save it as a template.
The project auto-complete list and the script settings are project-specific, yes. So you can set up everything in the project the way you want it, including the script settings, and then save that whole project as a template for future scripts. You can also save the script settings themselves for use in other projects via the “Manage…” drop-down menu within the Script Settings window; you can then access them regardless of the project template you use to start.
