Hello , I tried to set a name for reader but when i click on preview it doesn’t show anything only the narrator’s bubble , is there any problem on my script ? What should I do to make it work?
Thank you

Can I see a picture of your script?

here is the picture


#4

I named my character ROSE but I

want the readers to choose their own Name


#5

Is there an error message?


#6

no there is no error message


#7

Instead of saying what is your first name just say name so delete all the first ones


#8

What exactly is it you’re trying to do?

So, if:
Script Name: ROSE
Display name: ROSE

Then try this (example):

INT. BLACK – NIGHT

@zoom reset

NARR
So, what’s your name?

input What’s Your Name? |What’s Your Name?|Done(ROSE)

NARR
Nice to meet you [ROSE]!

So, if:
Script Name: ROSE
Display name: ROSE

If you do this, then whatever the reader names the character will appear on screen and be used : )
However, like @Teahwalker said, you could use NAME, too : ) But then you would have to change ROSE’s display name to NAME, and in the script, it would look like this:
-Script Name: ROSE
-Display name: NAME
