Question
Can I open a Final Draft script in Final Draft AV 2?

Answer

Yes. You must first save the Final Draft file as a File Converter File (.fcf):

Go to File > Export (FD10 / 9) or File > Save As (FD8 / 7).

Change the Save As Type or Format drop-down menu to File Converter File (.fcf). On Mac, choose File Converter File version 2.0.

Then open the newly-created .fcf file in AV 2.x and resave the document with a new name. Note that you will have to spend some time reformatting the material.

NOTE:  All support for Final Draft 7 and older, and AV 2, has been discontinued.
