Deleting vs ignoring script text

Deleting and ignoring text or wordless media in your script is how you edit video or audio content like a doc in Descript.

Delete script content

Delete will non-destructively remove both the script content and associated media. Just highlight a section of script, and press Delete (macOS) or Backspace (Windows).

Ignoring script content

Ignoring script will also non-destructively edit your content but will strikethrough the text or wordless media in your script instead of removing it.

This is useful for seeing your edits in the script or if you think you might want to bring script media back into a composition later. To ignore text, highlight a section of script, and press Command + Delete (macOS) or Control + Backspace (Windows).

Ignoring script content

After ignoring a word or section in your script, you can hover over the ignored script and choose to Restore it back into the script, or Delete it.
