I belong to a radio theater group and often serve as director, which
means I'm responsible for the scripts for those shows. There are
some standard requirements for the script format, and I haven't been
able to figure out how to make them happen automagically through
formatting or styles. Would appreciate any help. Here is what I need:
1. Header on every page. No problem with that by itself, but see #2.
2. Every line numbered. Problem I've had here is (a) headers get
the numbers, too, ...
I'm puzzled. Are you using Insert | Header to create a real
header? If so, I don't see that the header is included in line numbering.
... and (b) numbering needs to start over on each page.
o Go to Tools | Line Numbering... and tick "Show numbering".
o At the bottom, tick "Restart every new page".
3. Need a hanging indent, for spoken lines that don't fit on one
physical line, but need a tab within the indent (between the line
number and the text) so the character's name can be inserted.
o Go to right-click | Edit Paragraph Style... | Indents & Spacing | Indent.
o Set "Before text" to some suitable positive value.
o Set "First line" to the corresponding negative value.
For each speech, type the character name, press Tab, and then type
the speech text. The Tab character will move the start of the text
to the indented paragraph boundary.
I trust this helps.
