How to export Script Projects and Notes.

Why doesn't my tableread begin reading from the start of the document? 


By default tableread begins reading at the first scene header - beginning with INT. or EXT. You can switch this off in the global settings by selecting 'Read Title Page'. tableread will now read the entire document.




Why can't I change the Script Details of some Projects?


The likely reason is that you have imported a script that was configured by another tableread user. Only the person who exported the script can change the Script Details in project settings.



I am having errors importing a script, what can I do?


tableread works by parsing scripts that have been correctly formatted in professional screenwriting software. Please make certain that this is the case.


You must import a PDF file with live text - meaning, the text can be selected and not flat.
