General questions

How do I learn monologues?

Here we recommend splitting the script up into smaller pieces, at the natural breaks. When committing the lines to memory, you can also use the A-B section repeat / loop functionality on the playback screen to focus on fractions of the pieces you created. You can then build up the pieces until you have committed the entire monologue to memory.

What is the sleep function and how do I use it?

The sleep function enables you to choose a time after which Lines2Memory will stop playing. Designed to go to sleep to, whilst those lines are being subconsciously committed to memory!

To use the sleep function, go to the iOS settings app, and scroll down to the Lines2Memory area. Flick the switch to enable the sleep function, and use the slider to set a time between 1 minute and 120 minutes.

Editing the script

How do I delete a script/day/scene/line?

This is achieved using the standard swiping from right to left on the item you wish to delete.

Why is changing pitch disabled on the Character settings?

Pitch change is available in iOS 8 and higher. If your device is running on iOS 7 then this feature will be disabled.

The altered pitch of the characters is too high/low. How do I change it?

Both high and low pitch adjustment can be found in the Apple settings app.

I can’t find where to change the line name or change whose line it is.

The line edit screen is available when you click on a line on the scenes page. This is reached by drilling down under the Script tab. Select the ( i ) by the script name, and then click Scenes (or Days if you have days turned on, and then the scene) and then on the scenes page you need to turn on Show lines in the menu.

How do I move scenes/days?

You can swap scenes around on either the scenes page (if you have Show Lines turned off), or on the days page (if you have Show Scenes turned on). You can swap days around on the Days page if you have Show Scenes turned off.

How do I delete a scene?

There are two options depending on whether you have ‘split script by days’ turned on or off.

If ‘script split by days’ is OFF


Go to the script tab

Press the > for the script

Press the Scenes button

Make sure that Show Lines is turned off in the menu on the Scenes page

Swipe left to delete the scene.


If ‘script split by days’ is ON


Go to the script tab

Press the > for the script

Press the Days button

Make sure that Show Scenes is turned on in the menu on the Days page

Swipe left to delete the scene.


How do I delete a line?

You can delete a line in two places:


On the Recording screen as follows

Open the menu

Make sure Swipe to delete is ON (then close the menu)

Swipe on a line from right to left to reveal the delete button.

Press the button to delete it

On the scenes screen

Turn on Move/Copy

Press the stop sign on the left of the line you want to delete

Press the delete button


How do I change what I hear on playback?

The playback options are in the menu on the play screen.

As you select the different options from the Play and Order selection, and the Pause and Recap switches you will see the image change below, which shows you what you will hear.

For example, to hear just your lines and their lines you should have:

Play set to “my lines”

Order will be disabled as that doesn’t have any affect

Pause after gap will have no affect

Recap my lines only should be off.

You will then see an image with a green my lines and a blue their lines.

If you play around with the buttons you will soon get a feel for it.


Importing & Exporting

How do I access the import script screen?

When you select a script in your email / Google+ / Dropbox etc. and choose to open it in Lines2Memory it will automatically take you to the import screens.

Why did my script duplicate when I imported it rather than over write my lines?

When you import a script it can only over write lines if it knows that they are the same. This works if you record a script, and then share it with a friend, who records their lines and sends it back. Then their lines will replace the ones you recorded. If you both recorded it separately then you need to use the manual import to select which lines are replaced with which.


The exported script is too large to email

You have a couple of options here. Either you can use a file sharing site such as Dropbox or Google+, both of which are free, or you can export the script chunks broken up by scene.



How do I load a PDF of my script?

Go to the location of your PDF (email/Google+/Dropbox/etc.) and select to open it in Lines2Memory. When you have done this you should see the following button appear on the Recording and Playback screens.


How do I view my PDF?

The PDF is only visible from the Play and Record screens. To view the PDF either press the PDF button (above) or select Show PDF from the menu.


Audio problems

I can record audio but cannot hear it.

You need to give permission for the app to record audio. The phone should ask you when you first start the app, but sometimes it doesn’t depending on some settings on your phone.

You can change (and just check) this by going to the settings app on the phone, and then scrolling down until you get to Lines2Memory. Select this and you will be taken to the screen where you can allow Microphone (the switch should be green), as in this image


If the options don’t appear there then you can also turn on and off access to the microphone is the Settings app under the Privacy section, and then under Microphone. Here you should be able see line learner with a switch next to it. as in this image.


If that doesn’t work, then you may need to reset all of your privacy settings.

You can RESET your privacy settings in iOS Settings.

Settings > General > Reset > Reset Location and Privacy.
