Question
When I open my script in Final Draft 8 for Mac, it’s in Landscape; when I change it to Portrait the formatting gets messed up.

Answer
  1. Go to File > Close to close your script;
  2. Open the tutorial script that ships with the program:
    1. 8.0.1 – Go to Mac HD > Applications >Final Draft 8 > Tutorial > The Swans of Brooklyn – Script;
    2. 8.0.3.1 – Go to Help > Tutorial > Script;
  3. With the tutorial script open, go to File > Page Setup;
  4. Change the orientation from Landscape to Portrait;
  5. Go to the Settings dropdown menu and choose Save As Default;
  6. Nothing will happen and the menu will return to Page Attributes as the viewable option; click OK;
  7. The tutorial script will now be in Portrait but with erroneous formatting;
  8. Go to File > Close to close the tutorial script;
  9. Quit Final Draft and re-launch it;
  10. Go to File > Open Recent and open your script; it will now be in Portrait and properly formatted.
