Scriptation 4.0.10 is what we like to call… a big, little update.
Highlighted by the addition of the OpenDyslexic font in Reader Mode, we’ve also integrated a Lock Sides feature enabling Actor Highlight on sides, added Dock and Disable options for the Thumbnail Bar, Show More / Show Less functionality for Recent Files, and a Reset Reader Highlight. Together these updates focus on ease, accessibility, and crafting the most comfortable user experience.
We also made over a dozen interface upgrades for both iPad and Mac, as well as significant improvements to document load and sync. We’re sure you’re going to notice!
Let’s dive in!
OpenDyslexic is a new open sourced font, created to increase readability for users with dyslexia. Proudly set as our new default font within Reader Mode, OpenDyslexic is sure to improve the experience of many users.
Like all styles within Reader Mode, it can be adjusted with 14 different sizes, and is fully compatible with Actor Highlighting and automated Scroll.
Locking Sides for Actor Highlight
Through the addition of our new Lock mode, users have the ability to enable Actor Highlighting on Sides. With Lock and Unlock icons that appear only after creating Sides within Scriptation, users have the ability to easily rearrange their pages into shooting order, then Lock the pages.
For users who distribute Sides to an entire production team, these new features are sure to save all of your collaborators a boatload of time.
Dock and Disable Thumbnail Bar
On the Thumbnail Bar, we’ve added a Docked option, as well as a Disable option. For many users that work in a live environment, eliminating the risk of accidentally tapping pages was a valuable improvement.
The new docked display offers an expanded and shorter thumbnail display.
The new disable option removes the thumbnail bar entirely, only displaying page number.
