I'm not exactly sure of this particular problem you are having. But I notice sometimes people look to use Dramatica Story Expert as a word processor. In my opinion, while it has some word processing capabilities, its strongest suit is how it creates structural components for your narrative and the various ways it generates reports you can use to develop it from--on another word processor like Scrivener, or the like. So, in my opinion, consider buying it for its infinitely capable structural strengths rather than its limited word processing capabilities.
As I'm inputting story information/appreciations into DSE, I try to distill them down as much as possible so they're clear in outline form. I save the "fleshing" out for when I'm develop it further in my word processor program.
Nonetheless, I hope there is a work around for you.
