I suggest you ...

Either show the full script section or allow script export

I've seen the existing ideas that ask for exporting the scripts, and I agree with them, but an alternative that would work for me is to show the full script section on screen (instead of having it trailing off) - if I could resize that box, or if it could scroll, then I could see enough to know what's coming. As it is, even though I just recorded the audio, I'm still guess as to what's coming, and my video doesn't look natural. Being able to export the script (so I can print it), or being able to actually see the full section on screen is really important to be able to effectively use scripting! Thank you.

        I received the below response from Sam regarding " I want my users to have the option of printing the caption/script."

        Hello Val,

        It looks like your screenshot is showing how a published scripted recording is shown once it's uploaded and viewed from a Pro Hosting playback page.

        Following is a link to a short tutorial that goes into more detail about how Pro Hosting works. If you have any further questions, just let me know.

        Thanks Nick for bringing up this issue. I want my users to have the option of printing the caption/script. When I used the Screencast-o-Matic tutorials to learn how to create a script and insert it as a caption, I had to copy and paste the captions into a Word document, then print them. For me, having the captions under the video isn't as effect. Your post was on 11/16/15. If this issue has been resolved, where can I find it on the Screencast-o-Matic website?

        Sorry for not being clear - to clarify, when I say "show the full script section on screen," I'm referring to when recording the video.
