  1. Hello Storyist Forums, I'm writing screenplays using fountain syntax. However, I can't figure out how to get Storyist's fountain exporter NOT to add extra returns in-between single-spaced lines of text. Has anyone figured this out? I'm writing in a Storyist Text File and decreasing the After Paragraph spacing from 10 to 0. However, the fountain exporter exports: JOHN (into phone) I'm on my way. as: JOHN (into phone) I'm on my way. And thus it breaks the fountain syntax and cannot be rendered in screenplay format without fixing this in the exported file first. This is the same for any instance of a manual, single-spaced return, such as indented action text: Room 492 Calzone Exports as: Room 492 Calzone Any fixes for this behavior? I realized that I can simply use Storyist's text file exporter as an alternative, and that eliminates these issues completely. The text exporter exports exactly what's on the page without adding any extra returns. But I'm curious why it's fountain exporter doesn't export exactly what's on the page, and if there's a way to fix it. Thanks!
  2. Hello, The fountain markup spec (http://fountain.io/syntax) allows dialogue to be "forced" by using two spaces on the preceding line. For example: MARK Does anyone have any suggestions? <--- two spaces Perhaps I should rephrase my question. The second line should be dialogue, but Storyist for iOS interprets the second line ("Perhaps...") as action. Other programs (such as Marked 2 for Mac) also have the same parsing error, so I'm wondering the interpretation error is part of the open source tools the fountain team has made available. Any else have thoughts? (Or maybe I'm the only person who uses spaced out dialogue in fountain...) Also, I know an updated fountain 1.1 spec is on its way... Thanks, -Tim

  5. Storyist for iPad 1.3 is now available in the App Store. Storyist 1.3 adds the ability to Create, modify, and delete styles. Export files in PDF format. Import and export Fountain scripts. Fountain is a plain text markup syntax for screenplays. Send files to other apps in any of the formats that Storyist supports. It also includes several other requested changes and fixes, including the following: Headers and footers are preserved when importing and exporting FDX. You can now specify a default page size of "US Letter" or "A4" for documents like FDX and plain text that don't encode the page size in the file format. Typewriter mode autoscrolling is now smoother when you're typing quickly and reach the end of a line. -Steve
