What's New in Version 2.9.9
Improved performance for documents with many script notes. Plus fixed issue to preserve images added to scripts via online studios.
Legacy was great, this version is seriously lacking.
I’m just using this for a comics script app, and it used to be fantastic. Now it’s serious lacking and sloppy. The formatting for a comic book/ graphic novel is weirdly off-center. Going to the cloud and using the online version fixes this issue, but it’s not an environment that I want to create in. The thing that makes this near unusable for me is every time I make a change to a panel or description( if I delete something)... all the panel numbering gets wacky. Basically, it resorts to the full numbering so if I'm on page 4 panel 1 and I make a change, the numbering then becomes page 4 panel 20 (or whatever it may be). Going to the cloud on this issue makes it worse, because then you lose the page numbering as well. All indication of the page “field” goes away. To change is back, the only way that works is to fix everything by hand. And it affects every panel after the panel changed. It’s not just a once and awhile bug, it happen everytime. Also if you close the app and then re-open it the panels that you fixed by hand, are now completely jacked up. I’m better off using Word or Pages.
This application was suggested to me by a friend who is a screenwriter. I was new to the format, being primarily a theatre artist. I found the automatic formatting very useful, and for basic work it has a very low learning curve (a plus, as I wanted to dive in and create, not learn a new system). I’m sure there are features that I’m not using that would be helpful, but now that I have the first draft finished, I can start playing around.
