I can't figure out how this works.

I figured it out a little bit. When you click on the link, go to "Create New Story" below "Love Story: Titanic". You will see the template at the bottom of "Create a New Story". The first one will say, "What is the title of your screenplay?" And then you will see everything you're typing on the right hand side of the template once you typed something. It would say something like this: "Once upon a time, there was a Good Guy and a Bad Guy," or something like that. Once you answered all the questions, click "Display Overlay," and you will see the template you typed in better format. And then copy the displayed template, paste the template on your document, and save it if you want to keep what you have typed.

I'm not seeing anything you just described... Might have to try a different browser, I guess.

(checking new browser...)



Okay, that's new. Looks like the tool doesn't like Internet Explorer, or at least the version I'm using.

I thought this was a joke, but you could really use this. Of course you could just write it yourself to.

Zach - one word for you: Chrome.

Chris - you could write it yourself, but if you don't know how to do that, then maybe this can help.

Can I transfer all my bookmarked and favorite pages into Chrome? That's really why I stick with IE -- I don't have the time (but more importantly, don't want) to jump back and forth, copying and pasting addresses from IE to a new browser.

Thanks, Tim. I'll check that out.

Every browser presents its own set of problems. IE just happens to offend more often than the rest.

I don't think I'd trust Chrome, but it works fine in Firefox.

The link posted here works fine in IE 9 for me.

Tim Westland (Moderator) ~ 3/18/2012 4:35 PM

Not trust Chrome? Why?

Zach Jansen (Level 4) ~ 3/18/2012 5:42 PM

Because Chrome spelled backwords is emorhc, which everyone knows means evil.

Mariner Software carries a program called Contour.

I've switched to paper organization for the features I'm working on and prefer that. Now all I have to do is finish one...
