Question
When I tab through the elements, Final Draft puts in a character name instead of going through the cycle of Scene Heading, Action, Character, Transition, etc.

Answer

This is by design.When you have Auto Character Guess turned on (which it is by default), and you have a scene with existing characters, the program will try to auto-guess the next character. Tab places that character name in and goes to dialogue. If you do not want this to occur, turn off Auto Character Guess by going to Document > SmartType Options on Mac or Tools > Options > SmartType on Windows.
