highland logoThe new beta of Highland — released last night — tackles three major issues.

The first fix is exporting to Final Draft (.fdx). If you encountered a file that opened as bunch of (cont’d)’s, give it another try.

The second major addition: legacy support for Snow Leopard (OS 10.6). In order to make it work, we had to temporarily disable two features: printing and the quick-reference sheet. They’ll be back. We just wanted to get the beta into testers’ hands ASAP.

The third issue is extended Unicode support for larger character sets, including accents and diacritical marks. We want Highland to work on screenplays written in a range of languages, but our sample size is small. So as with any issue, if you find Highland is struggling with a given script, please send a report card.

If you already have the Highland beta installed, it will auto-update. If not, you can download it from the site.
