Highlight your lines
We’ve designed Rehearsal to be as close to real world, familiar processes as possible, and highlighting with Rehearsal is amazingly similar to taking your paper script, grabbing a highlighter and marking your lines – without the highlighter smearing your script.
Highlighting is simple.
Tap on My Scripts to bring up the script you want to highlight. Rotate your screen to your desired orientation: portrait or landscape. Pinch the image on the screen to zoom in on the lines, making the view just wider than the dialogue text blocks and scroll through your script to make sure none of the longer lines are cut off:
Locate the beginning of your lines. You can scroll through your script by dragging the image from the bottom of the screen to the top, taking you from page to page. Tap on your choice of highlighting color button on the bottom icon bar to choose that color for your highlighting. As you come to your lines, use your fingers to swipe across your lines – when you touch your screen, your finger acts as the tip of the highlighter, leaving behind the color you chose.
You can, if you’re one of THOSE people, also highlight your scene partner’s lines in a different color:
If you make a mistake and highlight messily, or you highlight another character’s lines by mistake (don’t you hate when that happens?), no problem. Unlike in the real world, where you have to remember that the line you mistakenly highlighted isn’t really yours, all you have to do in Rehearsal is tap the eraser button – the button just to the right of the four highlighting buttons. Then, just touch or swipe anywhere in the errant highlighting, and it disappears.
When you’re finished highlighting all your lines, it’s time to scroll back up to the top of the scene, and record it. That’s a snap.
