Best practices when using Sync Screenplay
Sync Screenplay Window
Review the Sync Screenplay Window to verify changes that will take effect when importing a new draft.
1 – Removed scenes will show up in red.
2 – Modified scenes will be highlighted in blue.
3 – You can click on a scene to open it up and see the changes.
Is there a way to update the script without losing existing breakdowns?
Yes! If you use Sync Screenplay, it will preserve the tagged elements on your account as long as the existing scene numbers have not changed.
When syncing a new version of the script, I lost all tagged elements apart from cast members.
This is most likely because the scene numbers in your script have changed. Follow the instructions above and make sure that the scene numbers are the same!
