The script breakdown automatically creates Characters for your production; however, it only pulls in Characters with speaking lines. This article explains how to add Principal and Background Characters to a Scene.

Add Characters to multiple Scenes

- Click Add/Remove in the Principals column in line with your chosen Scene.
- In the Add & Remove Principals form, select the Character(s) to add from the dropdown menu.
- Click Save.
- Repeat steps 2-4 for additional Scenes and click Save when done.
Add Characters to a single Scene
- Click the Inline Ellipsis for the Scene you want to edit.
- Select Edit in the Inline Options menu.
- Click Add/Remove in the Principals column to add Principals.
- In the Add & Remove Principals form, select the Character(s) you want to add from the dropdown menu.
