Like many of you out there I use Final Draft and whilst it’s certainly not perfect, it’s the one I find most serviceable and least annoying, even though I must only use about a tenth of the applications.
Basically then this is a Q for those out there who know their way round this software better than I do (which is not difficult, admittedly, my cat probably knows more about FD than I do).
In the “file” bit on the far left handside, you can go to “new screenplay” and you have the basic spec template, even I know that. In addition, on the drop-down list you’ve got templates not just for specs, but BBC sitcoms, Eastenders, Coronation Street, Alias, etc etc.
But what if there’s NOT a template for a show I want to put into my system? Is there any way I can “programme” it into Final Draft so that when I select it thereafter, it will do all the formatting for that particular show so I need put it in only once instead of painstakingly page by page?
Any thoughts appreciated.
