Customize default templates

You can customize the default Story templates according to your requirements and save them as custom templates.

  1. Do one of the following based on your current view:

    • In Projects view, click New.

    • In Authoring view, select File > New.

    Note:

    You can modify default templates from the authoring view only.

  2. In Type, select Film Script or TV Script.

  3. In Template, select the template that you want to customize. Click Change.

  4. In the Change Template dialog, select an element from the left panel, and customize it using options in the right panel.

    • Use the options in the Paragraph tab to change the alignment and spacing settings for the element. In Suffix, enter a character to automatically display at the end of the element.

    • Use the options in the Text tab to specify the style for the text in the element.

  5. For TV scripts, by default, all scenes start from a new page. To create scenes without page breaks, deselect the option Start Scene From New Page.

  6. The position of the scene number is the distance in inches from the left margin. To change the alignment for the scene number, enter a custom value.

  7. Click OK. In the Save Template dialog, enter a name for the template, and click Yes.
