    Posted: 27 Jul 2006 at 4:27am

I found out that my layout isn't correct and thats one of the main things they grade on...you not the content or the entertainment value, but the LAYOUT!!!!  But what do you do...it's the way its done...So i have Final draft and a couple of questions...

Will it do the layout correctly, automatically or is there something i need to setup.
 
Will it convert to .doc easily?

And is it a good application?

I'm pretty sure that content and entertainment value are "main things" they grade you on as well...
I don't have final draft, but like any of these programs, it will get your formatting right so you don't have to worry about it.

I'm sure they do grade on more...but i was just blowing off some steam...becuase i screwed up and wanted to blame someone else  Tongue
 
Just wish it didnt matter at all...i guess.

You should just save as .PDF Final draft converted it flawlessly for my script.
