    How do I replace Roman Numerals with normal numbers in Final Draft?

    Discussion in 'Software' started by Riaan, Sep 3, 2016.

    Hi,

    I have Final Draft 8. My pages are numbered in Roman Numerals. How do I change that to normal numbers?

    Thank you.

    Pretty sure Google would be a fantastic place to get a quick answer to this. Or YouTube.

    Scoured both Google and You Tube for answers. Nothing. That's why I came here.

    Found the answer: If you start a new screenplay, and put a Title Page in first, it will give you Roman Numerical numbers from there on.

    Best is to write a first page, and start your second, from there it will show normal numbers. Then you can add a Title page. It's really dumb, but there you go.

    Yeah, I found a lot of things about this industry-standard software to be either dumb, nonintuitive or downright awkward. Trelby is free, open-source screenwriting software and much faster to pick up.

    I'd prefer Movie Draft but it lies broken and abandoned in a far corner of the Internet. Too bad, really. It's got some great features.
