Question
In Final Draft 7, deleting a locked A page combines that locked A page with next page instead of the preceding page.

Answer

When the pages are locked and a page is deleted, its number gets combined with the next page. For example, if the sequence of pages is 1-1A-2 and 1A is deleted, the sequence of pages will be 1, 1A-2.

If you need it to be 1-1A, 2:

  1. Highlight Page 1-1A;
  2. Go to Edit > Cut;
  3. Without moving the blinking cursor, immediately go to Edit > Paste.You will now have 1-1A become 1-2 and 2 will become 2A;
  4. Place your cursor at the top of Page 2A;
  5. Go to Production > Locking Tools and select Adjust Current Locked Page;
  6. Click OK at the warning;
  7. Choose "2" for the page number;
  8. Click OK. This will renumber the pages 1-1A, 2.

Note: You may have to refresh the screen to show the change.

NOTE: Final Draft 10 / 9 / 8 paginate production scripts differently from previous versions and will in this situation create pages 1-1A, 2 automatically. For information on upgrading to FD10, click HERE.
