Join Jeff Sengstack for an introduction to the screenwriting and production planning application Adobe Story. This course details each of Story's three main functions—scriptwriting, collaborative editing, and production organizing—as well as how to connect script text to spoken dialogue in Premiere Pro. Explore how to create and use script templates, manage editing from coauthors using track changes, arrange shooting schedules, and more.
Well, that wraps up this Up and Running with Adobe Story. Before we leave, I want to offer up a couple of resources for you. If you go to Help and click on Adobe Story Help, that will take you to the website. Looks like this, Adobe Story Help website. It's a little different looking than the current websites that are being used for help for other Adobe products. This is like one step back from the current look of Help files for other products. But that's okay, and they're updating these things pretty regularly, so by the time you take a look at it, it might like different. But in any event it gives you a really good Search feature here.
If you go over here and type in let's say astx for example, the type of file we looked at before, then you can click on this little box that says "This reference only." I really like that feature because it limits the Search just to the reference file, like that, and click on the Search button, and it takes to the Community Help where you have the option of only looking in the Adobe content--which is why we clicked that box--but you can switch out to Community content which will take care of the things, like forums and other things like that, that may not be directly part of Adobe. But I prefer this site, generally, because it narrows things down pretty well.
Another thing you can do is look at the PDF. I am going to go back on that here. If you look on this page in the up right- hand corner it says View PDF, and I kind of like looking at the PDF, because first like I put it on my Desktop but I am not online, it's available to me if I just happened to be offline so I click on that, opens it up here, and you could save this on your Desktop or save it on hard drive or some place. But I like that as a table of contents here, it's pretty easy to zip through it that way, we'll look at the table of contents here. These are all hyperlinks. If you click one of them here, it takes you right to that spot, so that's a good thing.
Also this is a great search tool here, built into this, click on that, and you can search here and have some elements that you want to attach to the search to kind of narrow it down. I'm going to search on schedule. Click on Search. What I like about this is that lists all the hits right here on the left-hand side. It's very clever how that works. An easy way to go through the PDF. That's one of the values of working here in the PDF. Another resource you can go to is the Forum-- Adobe Forum for Story--here it is. And what is excellent about this little forum besides answering your questions--these are questions that if you run into problems just sort of post your questions here if you can't answer it by looking at the help file or looking in the PDF, you post a question here.
This guy right there in top was watching over this. He is the product manager. He is the owner, as they call them in Adobe Problem. So it's nice to know that the folks who are on the staff, who work on this product, are all right there bird-dogging this forum. So if you do run into problems, you've got some resources to look into to try to solve your problems, answer your questions. So thank you so much for watching. It's been my pleasure presenting this course to you.
