Can Movie Magic Screenwriter, import a screenplay into it?

I have a script, written by someone else, that I want to make changes, to lower the budget. Mainly I just have to change the third act around.

Is there a way to import the script into the program Movie Magic Screenwriter, so I will not have to type out the entire thing? Like can I convert the script to a different format that MMS will accept perhaps? Right now it's a PDF file.

Thank you for your input everyone. I really appreciate it.

Been years since I used MMS but I don't think you can import a pdf to create a new screenplay. You need to convert the PDF to Word or rich text format first and then I believe you can import it.

There are online tools for converting pdf to word/text, etc.

Microsoft Word can even convert it to pdf (default when you try to open it).

I know it's a foreign concept to you, but did you try to RTFM?
