We’ve just pushed live another exciting update to Adobe Story. This release takes collaborative script authoring to the next level. Coauthors and reviewers can now insert sticky notes into a script. They can also drag a sticky note to any location within the script. Cool, isn’t it?
We’ve also added numerous other features to simplify and streamline your workflows:
The Sync Schedule dialog now lists changes only for the properties that you’ve chosen to view.
You can edit tags that you created.
You can export the resource conflict results between two schedules as HTML (.htm). You can then open the exported results in word processing tools, such as Microsoft Word.
User interactions for several dialog boxes have been simplified:
Manage Scene Numbers
Manage Dialog Numbers
Manage Camera Shot Numbers
Manage Scene Durations
You can export project data (lists, scene properties, and schedules) as XML.
While working with schedules, you can choose a font size—small, medium, or large.
Layout improvements while printing schedules.
You can choose whether you want to display Revision Start Date or Last Modified Date in the header and footer for production revisions.
You can see a list of users with whom a project is shared. Invitees who haven’t yet accepted a share request are listed as well.
When you click the word count in the status bar, you can view the dialog word count in the current script.
Several critical bugs have been fixed in this release.
