Have you installed the template on the latest LibO version?
No. I think we're all hoping LO will be compatible with OOo. If it's not, I will make adjustments
when the final production version is released.
some users were asking for a short primer on how to use the template. Is there one available?
Yes, it's inside the template itself. Screenwriting is not rocket science, but out of 100K
downloads, a dummy or two will always show up. ;-)
I also notice your facebook site (http://www.facebook.com/screenw) has an "Instructions for
dummies?" but there is really no instructions there.
It was a question posted by one of them. ;-) I answered her question, and she's fine. But thanks
for pointing out that discussion thread. Another one showed up, so I just answered his question.
Also, could you test the upload of your template into our Drupal repository?
No. It would be a duplicate effort, at this point. And OOo has already forced me to duplicate these
formatters, from the Extensions site to their relatively-new Templates site. Idiotic web
Thanks for your kind comments, BTW!
Are you the organizer in charge of LO Marketing? I'd like to have a private discussion with whoever
is running the show, someone with a LO or DF email address. My email address is at the top of this
My thought is that creators should create, and organizers should organize, and that we should talk
to each other directly. Former Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz told me a while back that he was
interested in Screenwright(R), but then he became distracted. I think that was when Ellison started
breathing down his neck. ;-)

I personally do not feel that adding another extension to the, already bloated download, is going
to help anyone.
Bloated? Heh. Someone should have thought of that, about 70 Megs ago. ;-) If a user has low
bandwidth, and is spending seven or eight hours downloading a 137Meg program, an extra 30 seconds
or so to download another 17K is not going to make any difference at all. I used to have dialup,
and developed some simple download instructions based on that lengthy process. In fact, those
are still more user-friendly than OOo's (mine tell where/how to use the MD5 checksum). I'll donate
them to LibreOffice, too.
And thanks for your kind comments!

LO screenplay should really be either a separate extension

Go for it. ;-)
