Yes, I think the problem is encoding. Textmate uses UTF8 and perhaps Final Draft uses ASC II? Is there any way to work in TM in ASC II or perhaps there is some way to convert the file before I import it into Final Draft. Thanks.
In the "save as" dialog you can select the encoding, as well as what to do with line endings. Then you can ask Final Draft to open the saved file directly, instead of using copy and paste. I don't know if there is any way to specify the format of the copy thing, that should be always utf-8 I would expect.
But what I would recommend first is to see if Final Draft can be set to use utf8. There isn't much reason for most programs to not use utf8 in this day and age (hope I won't get flamed for that).
