I've just installed Contour and I can't type any text into the edit boxes.
Firstly, thank you for purchasing and installing Contour for Windows.
In the current version of Contour for Windows(1.2), it is possible to have no screenplay in the sidebar selected. Although the edit boxes in the center of the screen will allow you to place the cursor in the edit boxes, you cannot enter text while no screenplay is chosen.
Simply select a sample screenplay on the left side of your screen, then place your cursor in any of the edit boxes, and edit away. You might instead, create a new screenplay by going to the '+' sign in the lower left corner of the screen. Edit the details for your new screenplay, then click ok. With that screenplay selected, get on with showing us you've got a story to tell.
