Pagination is breaking a document into pages. The pagination that occurs while editing is an approximation; you can't rely on the page breaks appearing where the editor indicates they will, regardless of which printing technique you use (print or Generate PDF). The page breaks are approximate because the pagination is done client-side, rather than server-side as is done when generating a PDF; for local printing, Celtx is a little inconsistent and will even get pagination it does itself wrong. Page counts are approximate for the same reason.
Script | Format Options | Pagination turns pagination on or off for a particular script - if you have many scripts in your project, only the current one will be affected by your selection. A tick (â ) beside this function in the Script menu dropdown indicates that pagination is turned on for this script. Select the function again to turn it off. Alternatively, in the Script Editor page numbers can be turned on or off by changing
File | Page Setup | Show page numbers. You also have the option to
File | Page Setup | Show page number on first page.
Approximate location of page breaks is indicated with a dotted line across the page.
The Script Editor defaults to 54 lines per page and inserts page breaks automatically. Widows and Orphans get pushed to the next page.
A page counter is located in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. This shows the total number of pages in the script.
Page numbers are used to ensure "everyone is reading from the same page". Celtx is a pre-production, not production, tool, and as such does not support with page-locking, scene-locking or other production focused script management techniques.
