Import a Screenplay

To import a screenplay:

To import a screenplay into the current production:
  1. From the production breakdown, click the Screenplays tab
  2. Click the Import button
  3. Choose the file (Supported Screenplay Formats) containing the screenplay text
Synaesthesia will import the text, then break down characters, sets and scenes from it. Text files may be imported, but they must be properly formatted.

If you have already created characters, sets or scenes, Synaesthesia will update them with the new information. You can even import revised screenplays later and Synaesthesia will update the previous version, omitting and creating scenes as needed.
