  1. Jules, Your animal "sanctuary" sounds interesting but make sure you have the funds for vet care, as it can escalate out of control pretty fast. PAWS doesn't euthanize unless it absolutely has to, unfortunately, with limited funds, sometimes the needs of the many out weigh the needs of the one, especially if the injury is too severe. I thought having a kiosk at the local mall, would be an ideal setting for animal education and interaction with the public. Nothing elitists donations better the the feel of a warm fuzzy puppy, kitten or rabbit, etc. next to your face. Since I couldn't
  2. IMG_0177.JPG A little change of subject..... Don't know if this image will come thru, so if it does, here's the scoop. During my "spare" time, I volunteer at PAWS, Progressive Animal Welfare Society. I have worked with the Wildlife Center and the Companion Animal Center (Dogs and Cats) since last Sept. It has been a very interesting chapter in my life. During a meeting at the Seattle Paragliding Club, one of the members brought in this Owl. His name is Hooligan. He and a car collided just before last xmas. The resultant damage to his left wing was too severe to save and re
  3. To All, When I go to work tonight, I am going to take my script that is now in Pages and export it into Word using a PC. Then, tomorrow morning when I get home, I'll try to import it into Storyist, as a Word RTF doc, as suggested and see what happens. Part of the problem might be that I use Mac at home and PC at work to do my writing. I know they are two different systems but it seems to have worked up until now. You are probably right about Pages importing hidden codes along with the text. I have only recently switched from PC to Mac and will never go back. This is what we fear f
  4. Yes, I have read Storyist 2 User's Guide and Show Getting Started Guide. That's how I became aware that there was a discrepancy of information between the two guides. The User's Guide doesn't even mention Screen Play, in the Table of Contents. I have done everything that has been mentioned in the above post, many, many, many times. The results are always the same. I've tried importing the script by saving as; Word 2003 XML, 2007 docx , RTF, RTF with RTFD and Open Document Test (odt). After importing my script into the screenplay format, the Styles changes from Action to Heade
  5. Hello Thoth, Okay. So why did you put "me" in quotes? Seems people 'assume' what works for them should work for everyone else, a standard misconception. As I said, I've worked with a lot of different software in my life but Storyist seems to take the cake. You can't imagine the time I have spent trying to get this thing to work, valuable time I should have spent writing. Intuitive, is the key word here. Intuitive for a programmer doesn't mean the same thing for a guy off the street, "me". It would be an interesting experiment to have someone sit down, who has never been expo
  6. Thank each and everyone of you for taking the time to recommend a fix for my apparent learning curve. After reflecting on my initial post, I've come to the conclusion that perhaps I have a mental block regarding Storyist. I think this block stems from the way I look at computer software in general. I work for Boeing and in particular, as a Quality Inspector on the 787 program, which has the world's worst build software (Dassault). By the time I get home, I'm usually frustrated beyond belief and I just compound that problem when I sit down and fight another software program that is not int
  7. I would like to "Thank" everyone for taking the time to review this. All of you have some great points. When I'm in the script program, I don't see the Action tab at the bottom of the screen, as emoKid illustrates. Is that in Novel program? All I get is heading 1 or variants of it, which is greek to me. Would it hurt anyone (programers), to say what that means? I use headings when flying, not when writing! I just finished the first draft, of my first script and I'm excited as ever to get it into a script writing program that I can use for the rewrites. The writing was incredible, like watc
  8. OK all you screenwriters, where's the program that let's you sit down to a blank page and start writing without thinking about formatting, line spacing, page numbering, etc.? You know, something simple, intuitive and user friendly, as in anyone could sit down and start writing with just a list of Control key functions. My ideal script writing program would work like this; Select screenwriting format, blank page appears (Title Page), enter data, hit enter. First blank page of script appears and is numbered 1. Cursor automatically positions itself at the beginning of the page.

  10. If you have sold a movie script - Just how critical is it to stay within the "normal" movie script page requirements? Act 1 - 30 pages, Act 2 - 60 pages, Act 3 - 30 pages, (2 hour movie) I know or read that "less is better" but haven't read where it is imperative that Act 1 is only 30 pages long, etc. Thanks, Garry
  11. So just where are these Screencast you guys are talking about?
