Question
Why is my script longer than when it was first written in another version?

Answer

This can happen for a number of reasons.

    1. If the script was originally written in a font different from the one you're using now, there will be a page count difference (either longer or shorter).

To see which font you're currently using, go to Edit > Select All. Next, go to Format > Font and you'll see the font your script is in.

    1. If the printer page size or orientation defaults are different, this will also affect page count.

To check the printer defaults, go into your printer setup (not from within Final Draft) and check the paper size as well as the orientation.

  1. If the script template type is different from the one it in which it was originally written, this will affect the page count.
