- What is the difference between SuperNotecard and SuperNotecard for Scriptwriting? top
SuperNotecard and SuperNotecard for Scriptwriting are very similar programs. The scriptwriting edition is built on top of the standard edition and includes a few important features that are essential for writing scripts.
- How do you attach an image to a card? top
You cannot currently insert an image into the text of a SuperNotecard card. You can however create a file shortcut, web address or URL and attach it to a reference or factor. These details can then be easily linked to a card.
For instance if you have an illustration of your character, Jim Smith, you can create a shortcut and attach it to Jim's information. When you attach Jim to your card, you can include the shortcut and then click the image link and see the illustration while working with the card.
- Are my screenplay projects from SuperNotecard compatible with SuperNotecard for Scriptwriting? top
Screenplay projects built with SuperNotecard versions 1.7 or 1.6 can easily be opened in SuperNotecard for Scriptwriting. Prior formatting will be respected.
- How do you display the scene sequence numbers? top
Visit the application preferences and enable Show Card or Scene Sequence Number under the Project Explorer Options on the Display tab.
- How do I print to 3 x 5 notecards? top
While SuperNotecard cannot directly print to 3x5 notecards or Avery notecard sheets, it is possible to print more than one card on a piece of paper. Start by enabling "Preceed with page break" for cards on the Print & Export tab in the application's Preferences. Next print the project and select from your printer's layout options to print 4 pages per sheet of paper. For best results, also select "landscape" for the page orientation.
- What are my export options? top
SuperNotecard can export a project to Rich Text File (RTF) format which is compatible with most every word processor. SuperNotecard provides tools to help writers specify what parts of the project to export. For example, writers can choose to hide card titles or deck descriptions when exporting to their rough draft in a word processor. In addition SuperNotecard incluces an option to export the project as an outline.
SuperNotecard can also export projects as OPML files. Version 1.5 can also import OPML files created by other applications. OPML is a standardized XML format for outlines.
- What is meant by Factors? top
Factors represent content elements that simply factor into the prose. Characters, places, symbols, events, brand names, dates, etc. are all examples of factors in SuperNotecard's fiction projects.
System & Computer Questions

Yes. The code is valid for only four installations. Re-installations on the same computer count as just one use.

Yes. SuperNotecard is also compatible with Macs running on the new Intel Core Duo chip.

Yes. Projects saved on SuperNotecard for Mac OS X can be opened and changed in the Windows version (and vice versa) provided the *.snc extension remains intact.
- Is SuperNotecard compatible with my Miss Lonelynotes files? top
I noticed that SuperNotecard saves files with the *.snc extension. Miss Lonelynotes used a different extension. Yes. SuperNotecard opens both *.mln and *.snc. By default SuperNotecard saves files with a *.snc extension.
