DOES NOT WORK WITH ICLOUD OR DROPBOX!!!
I called tech support twice and got a snarky person on the phone trying to pawn the problem off on iCloud. The documents don’t open from either Dropbox or iCloud but they claim somehow claim it’s not the app. If you can’t open documents in the cloud and then save that progress then it renders this app basically useless and final draft won’t stand by it. I wish I could leave it zero stars but it’s literally a useless app.
Need a lot of work for this Final Draft veteran to be happy...
No ability to:
-Add page numbers.
-Search, find and replace well words.
-use a thesaurus.
-automatically go to next character.
-use a format assistant.
-pull up script reports.
-pull up scene reports.
-pull up character reports.
-adjust an autosave feature.
And there is no customer support.
Etc etc etc....
I've given it a year and there have been ZERO improvements and ZERO updates.
I have left out of this review all of the other issues that other negative reviews have listed since this list would be endless.
