Question
I just started a new Final Draft script and none of my text is formatted.

Answer

You probably started writing in a text document instead of a script document. A text document is unformatted, much like a new file in a regular word processor.

If you go to the Production menu and everything's grayed out, then you're in a text document.

Go to File > Export (FD10 / 9) or File > Save As (FD8 / 7). Save the file as a text only file, and then open the text file up (File > Open). You'll be prompted to open as a Text or Script document. Choose Script.
