I finally wrote the first version of my script and it's being read by my team right now (yay!). Now I'm sitting on the second draft and I have a little problem....
Before I switched to Causality, I used a different font color for my changes and corrections in the software I was working with before. This way, the reader didn't have to read the whole script from scratch later on and laboriously look for my changes. The colored font allowed him to see immediately where something had been changed. Then whenever I wanted to export the script in black text only again, I pressed CTRL+A, selected everything and chose black for all the text.
That doesn't seem to be possible in Causality anymore, since selecting all the text is only possible within a beat. Changing the color of the text afterwards in each beat individually is way too cumbersome and would take forever. Or have I overlooked a function in the software? Is there perhaps another way to color-code changes to the previous version?
Alternatively, I was looking for a way to compare the two versions of my script as a PDF. I thought perhaps the changes could be shown as comments. This worked with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, but then I can only save the comparison report with both screenplay versions and not just the new screenplay with the comments individually. I hope that was described understandably...
Actually, I'm just looking for a useful way to visually highlight the changes to the script without having to undo them later in each beat individually.
Does anyone have an idea? 🙂
