Many useful and unique functions, the ability to create your own version of a template is excellent.

I come from a respectful place when I critique so please understand I appreciate the good with the not so good

It took me ages to figure out the printing labyrinth setup

I used to copy and paste into PAGES and PAGES is amazing as a piece of software
I can clearly create page numbering system and see before I print what is the set up

Finally one night because I am a fanatic at saving pdf's.... I actually tried the old standard
ask to print, get Print dialog box, choose save as PDF

Viola I finally started to see the how the printing works because I could see the results when I opened my saved pdf

So... here is a constructive suggestion by way of explaining what happens with me

When you go to Document Properties, you can set up ONLY SOME of the print profile
such as using %p to have page numbers

Its a shame that it only creates Headers and only creates page numbers at header, but that is livable

So its not very clear but the other printing details are created in the Preferences, not Document Properties.

Each new scene starts on a fresh page!!!! this is great
It's not always needed but it is really important when I need it

Please find a more clear way for this part
Preferences has a toggle box for these two choices

Make more/continued adjustments
Make Keep next adjustments

I think it means choose either the old school way of writing 'more' at foot
then writing continued at head of next page

or move all of paragraph to following page
so I choose keep next....


when Scene Title begins on new page
Almost every time the pdf BUGS OUT

and writes the first letter of the Scene Title onto the previous page, not the beginning of the Scene Page... so the title is always misspelled and there is a silly orphan letter floating on a previous page
verrrrrry strange

I've tried many workarounds and its like chasing a cat around a room
