Scene Headings

A scene begins with a scene heading.

Scene headings begin with a prefix, specified in fountain-scene-heading-prefix-list, which defaults to ‘INT, EXT, EST, INT./EXT., INT/EXT, I/E’.

Each prefix may be followed by a dot and/or a space, so the following are equivalent:

INT HOUSE - DAY

INT. HOUSE - DAY
User Option: fountain-scene-heading-prefix-list

This options allows setting your own scene heading prefixes. These entries are case insensitive.

User Option: fountain-scene-heading-suffix-sep

This option allows setting the separator (a regular expression) between the scene location and time of day. The default  --?  allows either ‘ - ’ or ‘ -- ’.
