1.0.2 - May 16, 2013

  • This release is mostly just the standard bug fixes + performance enhancements. Nothing wrong with that.
  • Nima added one sly trick you're likely to love: shift-return makes the line uppercase. Boom. Try it! Your caps lock key will feel lonely.
  • We've also added support for the Lyric element. It's not part of the official Fountain spec yet — the syntax might change — but John needed it so here it is. Lyrics work like dialogue, except each line is preceded by a tilde (~), and you can have multiple stacked lines of lyrics. Here's an example:

    MARIONETTES
    ~Willy Wonka! Willy Wonka! The amazing chocolatier!
    ~Willy Wonka! Willy Wonka! Everybody give a cheer!
    ~He's modest, clever and so smart
    ~He barely can restrain it...

  • In screenplay format, Lyrics show up in italics. In stage musical format, well...maybe thatss something for a later release.

  • One last thing: your terrific feedback and five-star ratings mean a lot. Thanks for being awesome and supportive.

1.0.1 - April 3, 2013

  • When you save (or autosave), Highland remembers where your cursor was. Because that's How It Should Be.
  • Highland retains newlines upon Save. So if you like to use a lot of blank lines for some reason, go right ahead. It's your script.
  • Drag-and-dropping text within the editing window is so much better now. Try it!
  • When you import a PDF or FDX file, we treat it like a new Fountain file -- which it basically is. The first time you save it, you’ll give it a name.
  • Fixed a bug that caused an occasional crash during Save.
  • Fixed Export menu command.
  • Updated welcome screen text.
  • There was some stray Fountain markup (====) in FDX export. Whoops. Fixed.
