Hi There I thought you might be interested in this new development
https://variety.com/2018/digital/new...ce-1202901261/

The academy software foundation is a new initiative by hollywood to advance open source software in the field of film making. Maybe you can get involved somehow and reap benefits?

Hello!

For a long time, we did not have new versions, so it's time to get ready!

Unfortunately, version 0.7.2 beta 9 did not include everything that I wanted, for example, double dialogues did not distribute into update... The reason is that this is a rather complicated functional, on which I honestly say, was buried. Realizing that for more than two weeks I have been doing this and I'm not even in the middle of the road, I decided that we need to review the plan and adjust the route. In any case, this functionality will be in the program, not in this, either in one of the future versions.

From the new it turns out that we have only one major addition - it is possible to create versions of the script and compare them.



It works as follows - when you start the project, the program thinks that you started the first version of the script. When you have finished it, in the menu you will find the item "Start new version", by clicking which, you can specify the color of the new version (in the future we plan to make automatic revisions of all versions based on these colors) and set its name. That's all. Now you are already working on the next version. Then, again and again, you can create as many versions as you need.

After you have accumulated several versions and you want to compare them, you can follow to the tools module, select a tool with the appropriate name and compare the desired versions of the script. In this case, new pieces of text will be highlighted in green, deleted in red, and for the changed pieces, two blocks will be displayed one with the old text, and the second with the new one.

Plus, the way to fill out the cards has been changed. Now in edit mode for each card, you can see both its title and the heading of the scene.

Plus, we have some bug fixes:
- fixed the problem with the freezing of the program, when the block highlighting tuned on;
- fixed the problem with adding cards without a title, but with a description;
- fixed the problem with updating the card description, which in some cases was not deleted;
- fixed the problem with resetting the currently active cell in the mental map editor;
- improved the work of spelling dictionaries;
- changed behavior of the appearance of a side panel with formats in the Zen mode - now it appears, when you move the cursor to the edge of the screen;
- fixed the problem with keeping transparent background for png-images in the gallery;
- when creating a project in a non-existent folder, the program will try to create it automatically;
- when exporting to FDX format, the title page is now also saved;
- fixed the problem with running the program in newer versions of Linux distributions;
- translations of the program into Italian and Azerbaijani languages were added;
- minor improvements to the interface (update information is removed from the program menu, some panels are re-arranged).

Such things guys. I hope future versions will not force themselves to wait so long!

Hello.

And we have an update! Today, finally, we will move the latest beta version to the release candidate status!

In the current version, we made several improvements over the previous beta:
- improved program performance when working with script text;
- fixed problem with drawing the cursor (for Hebrew and Farsi fixed problem with positioning the cursor in the empty line);
- fixed problem with slowing down the typewriter sounds;
- fixed a problem with importing a DOCX document, when character dialogues were defined as actions;
- improved export of documents to PDF and DOCX;
- improved import and export in the fountain format.

If you have not been updated for a long time and have not followed the development of the program, then you can take a look at what was added to it on the way from version 0.7.1 to version 0.7.2:

Beta 1 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2017-11-10.html
Beta 2 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2017-11-12.html
Beta 3 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-01-07.html
Beta 4 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-01-08.html
Beta 5 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-01-23.html
Beta 6 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-03-14.html
Beta 7 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-05-15.html
Beta 8 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-06-19.html
Beta 9 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-09-17.html
Beta 9A - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-09-30.html

All further improvements in the current version will include only improvements in performance and fixing of detected errors. All new features will be added in the next version 0.8.0.

In fact, itís getting harder for me to support the project every day, so now Iím thinking about how it could be done so that on the one hand the project could develop and on the other hand I wouldnít have to be torn between my main job, my family and KIT. Perhaps you have ideas or suggestions on how to do this - welcome to discussions or private messaging!

How can you work two jobs without being torn between the jobs and your family?
People have been asking themselves that question for generations.

I don't think there's a good answer

And it's an unfortunate fact of software that once you stop actively supporting it then the software begins to die.
Definitely one of the risks people consider if they're going to use open source software instead of industry software.. there is that chance that the open source will stop being supported.

If your goal is a commercial product you could always try kickstarter to get going.

If you goal is to keep it going you could always release it open source and let developers create forks, features, keep it up to date, etc. There's ways to make $ with open source, just ask google and wordpress.

Thanks for your thoughts guys. What I want is to make a great product which will be useful for authors. And what about supporting it I really believe that both models can work (I mean Open Source and commercial), the issue in detecting what will work better

Hi everybody!

And here is the first patch of KIT Scenarist 0.7.2 rc2, correcting the work of the previous release.

And in it:
- fixed problem with displaying the cursor in the documents of the research module
- fixed problem with undoing last action
- improved saving of review marks in the script editor
- fixed problem with disappearing review marks
- fixed problems with project synchronization in some cases

And the program has updated Courier Prime font. We have added to it the full support of the Azerbaijani language as well!

Further, according to the plan, we will have several updates of the mobile version. It is necessary to deliver there all the current developments and optimization, add the ability to work with versions of the script, and it's time to embed cards in it

Have a nice day!

Hello friends.

Finally, it happened! The mobile version now also has a card module! Dreams of lounging in bed and work with the cards now become a reality!



A few words about how to work with cards in the mobile version:
1. the cards themselves are located in a separate menu item, which is called "Cards"
2. to move the card to another place, you need to use a long touch. You clamp the card, and when it is ready for dragging, it rises from the board
3. editing of the card is based on the same principle - you need to capture the card, after which it will become active and can be edited using a special button in the top bar
4. the size of the cards, the distance between them, their geometry and the need to use the corkboard background can be set in the application settings. There appeared a separate section for setting up cards.

You can get your copy of the iOS mobile app here - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/kit-...l=en&ls=1&mt=8 and here for Android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....kit.scenarist

I wish you all a good day, guys!
