Simple visual updates

Okay, this really isn’t a big deal, but I know how scary change can be. So I’m posting to give you a heads up, with info on how to go back to the old way if you want. The new options are available by clicking the wrench icon, then Display. Here’s what changed:

  1. We added a scrollbar by default to the script, even when your Mac settings don’t usually show scrollbars. And if you already have scrollbars, the new scrollbar is customized a little bit. You can get rid of that setting, or add custom scrollbars other places they’re needed, by changing the “Custom scrollbars” checkboxes.
  2. We now transfer the colors from your outline to the scene cards on the left. If you don’t use card colors (or the outliner at all), nothing should changed. You can uncheck the “Color scene cards…” box to go back to normal.
  3. The last setting is not on by default, but we have a new option to compact the scene cards to the left of the script and only show the scene headers. To enable this, check the “Compact scene cards” box.

Like I said, these aren’t too crazy. But I hope this post prevents writers from questioning their sanity, and most importantly, from sending me hate mail. Enjoy the new options!
