Anyone know a way to print an outline from a finished script in final draft? I finished a first draft of a feature and, for the rewrite, I want a print of the outline but can't find any information on how to do it. I'm able to print the note cards with scene summary but not a full outline from the notecard view without printing notecards. Basically, I don't want the "Box" view which cuts off vital info. I just want a scene summary.
Seems like a no-brainer that I could print the information (scene heading, and general action which I've got in notecard view) into a summary/outline format without the annoying boxes. Has anyone done this? Please post if you HAVE DONE IT. While I appreciate speculation, I would much rather hear from someone who has accomplished this seemingly impossible task.

Look under the Tools menu for "Reports" where you can generate all kinds of data. A "Scene Report" will give you this: 11 EXT. ALLEY - DAY 8 3 3/8
JACK (10), STEVE (3), JOE (3), RAY (11)
So you know that scene 11 in the Ext. Alley in the day is 3 and 3/8ths pages long, the characters in the scene, and how many lines they each have. Did I mention it does that for all your scenes, in script order, or alphabetical, or by order of shortest/longest scenes? Sound useful? Loads of other useful stuff under Reports for production purposes.
