Question
Final Draft won't let me type anything and almost all of the menu commands are greyed out.

Answer

The program is in Reader mode and needs to be activated. Go to Help > Activate and enter your Customer Number (note that it cannot be a Trial number, which starts with EFDT / XFDT / 9FDT). Click Activate and once the activation is complete, all program functions will be enabled.

For further assistance with Final Draft activation, dial 818-789-6281. This is a 24/7 service.
