highland iconWe’ve had a great response to Highland, our plain-text screenwriting app, with lots of five star ratings that make us blush. We’re working on new features, but first we’re squashing some bugs.

Here’s what’s new in 1.01:

  • When you save (or autosave), Highland remembers where your cursor was. Because that’s How It Should Be.
  • Highland retains newlines upon Save. So if you like to use a lot of blank lines for some reason, go right ahead. It’s your script.
  • Drag-and-dropping text within the editing window is so much better now. Try it!
  • When you import a PDF or FDX file, we treat it like a new Fountain file — which it basically is. The first time you save it, you’ll give it a name.
  • Fixed a bug that caused an occasional crash during Save.
  • Fixed Export menu command.
  • Updated welcome screen text.
  • There was some stray Fountain markup (====) in FDX export. Whoops. Fixed.
  • In Dark Mode, we’ve made the scroll bar easier to spot.1

If you haven’t tried out Highland, there’s a demo available. (Mac App Store rules won’t let us mention it in the product description.)

Keep sending your report cards and comments. That’s how Highland improves. And I’ll admit it: stars are nice, so if you’re enjoying Highland and feel like telling folks, leave us a review.

  1. Did you know you can change the colors in Dark Mode in the Preferences panel? Nima was like, “But what if someone picks terrible colors, like pink-on-red?” And I said, “What are you, the Color Police?” Then he showed me his badge.
