Greetings:

I recently switched from MovieMagic Screenwriter 6 to Final Draft 9. I've used MM since 2005, but switched for a couple of reasons:

1 - A collaborator I'm working with is already on FD.
2 - I'm getting ready to send one of my scripts (plus the collaboration script) to register with WGA-W before sending it out to an agent contact I have.

I decided to get started on a rewrite for one of my scripts I originally wrote in MM, figuring it was the perfect time, and I like to do my rewrites into a fresh file, using a printout of the earlier draft.

Being so used to the tab-enter function of MM, I'm finding it hard to transition - has anyone else made this transition? How'd it go? Did you get as comfortable with FD as you were with MM?

Thanks,
