use & instead of @ when you’re placing them

For example:
&CHARACTER spot 1.280 123 456 in zone 1 at layer 1
&CHARACTER1 stands screen left
etc.

thats great,
but now they’re overlapping her, how do I make her layer 1?

Use @cut to zone 2 or 3 and edit it and then remove it from the script. Like @cut to zone 2
Edit it then
@cut to zone 3
Edit it. After saving it you can remove these from the script .

Here you should use @cut to zone 2 to see the character

Use @speechbubble reset

For example:
EXT. CAMPUS BAR OL - NIGHT

&ELENI spot 0.695 162 159 in zone 2
@cut to zone 2
@speechbubble is 78 280 to 65% with tail_bottom_right

Some conversations

@speechbubble reset

After this every speechbubble will be normal.
