Final Draft Frustration

Apparently you’re supposed to deactivate your Final Draft before installing Snow Leopard.  Otherwise it will think you’ve used that activation code and refuse to let you reactivate it.  And if it’s a holiday weekend, you probably won’t see a response for days and days.  And then, all that writing that you’d been saving up for your holiday weekend probably won’t get done.

I’m not mad at Snow Leopard, it is sleek and wonderful.  I’m mad at Final Draft.  Maybe it’s time to learn a new program, I’m just so familiar with Final Draft and all of my writing is already in .fdr files.

If you have suggestions for other script writing software, I’d be an easy convert at this point.
