Naming index card title without obeying the scene heading format

Sometimes we use index cards to brainstorm bigger ideas before narrowing down to write the exact scene, so instead we don't label the title of each card as a scene header, rather just a few words on an idea, then the body is the synopsis for that idea.

So if there is a way we can freely label an index card without having to obey the scene heading format, it would open up many other ways to use index cards, not just limiting to strictly screenplay creation.

@fongtom610: Makes sense. A ticket for this is now open: https://github.com/teriflix/scrite/issues/213

@fongtom610: This one is now available in the last nightly build. Can you please try it out and let us know here if it works for you? https://1drv.ms/u/s!AiXlTgnIRBtZgZkUMef30xtTOJBQ1A?e=fGumef

Yes! It works good for me, one thing that'd make it better is if the timeline bellow would display the title of the card rather than the content since it does not have enough room anyway.

Some bugs - I can't open the project saved with this build, it would crash everytime I try to open it, but I can open previous version projects just fine.

@fongtom610: Yeah, the crash was reported by another nightly build user. It has now been fixed. So, you can download the latest nightly build from the same link. https://www.scrite.io/index.php/downloads/#nightly_builds

Yes, it does make sense to show the same title on the timeline. Good point.

@fongtom610: When you get a chance, take a look at the latest nightly build. https://www.scrite.io/index.php/downloads/#nightly_builds (we added a new one a few hours ago). Let us know if this feature works as you expected.
