You can add custom paragraph styles to the built-in styles.Screenplay auto-formattingIf you\'re typing a play or screenplay, StoryLines speeds up formatting by choosing an appropriate paragraph style where possible. Text and screenplay importImport existing plain text or formatted screenplays, exported by applications such as Final Draft.
