We're working with a transcription company who are formatting the transcripts they send us in the film script format but they are building them in Word. When I try to import them into Adobe Story the formatting completely falls apart. We want to be able to use the transcripts in Story and Premiere so that we can utilize the text analysis feature, but without the proper formatting it doesn't work. Is there a way to get Story to maintain the formatting when importing from Word?
Can you persuade the company to use story free instead of word?
If they are adamant on using word, then they'll have to stick to strict formatting rules so that we can import the script, which I'm not sure they'll do.
The trascription company is following the strict formatting rules, with properly indented character and dialogue lines, when they build the transcript in Word but when we import the word document in to Story the formatting dissapears. Anyway to maintain the formatting when importing a Word document into Story?
Hi, I am having the same issue, but you didn't post what the solution is.
Is there somethign speical that needs to happen to a MS Word document that has been formatted in the film script?
Incase anyone is searching for a fix, I emailed a script created inMS Word to Adobe and they returned to me (in less than 24hrs!) a text file that could be imported into Story as a tv script. I'd prefer a film script, but for my purposes the tv script was fine because it was just a way to get the script text imbedded into interview footage within Premiere.
It appears that I hadn't used an INT. tag, which confused Story... Still wouldn't import as a film script but it will import correctly as a TV script.
