In most cases, if you import a properly formatted Final Draft script (.fdx), it should automatically populate the Page Numbers. You can also update page counts on your scene strips at any point.
However, if you imported a long script and the page count didn't appear, there's a chance that when you converted your script to FDX, the converter (WriteDuet) doesn't properly convert the page length metadata. So as a next step, you can either:
- Open your script in Final Draft or Highland and immediately save the file. This restores the page length metadata that was lost during conversion.
- Add pages manually by editing each strip. Just click the "more options" button on far right and select "Edit Scene." You can also click a strip and type "e" (hotkey) to pull up the edit screen.
Tip: Highland is affordable and saves FDX files correctly.
