A complete storyboard is not only made of drawings, but also dialogue, actions, and valuable indications. In Storyboard Pro, you can easily import a script into your storyboard project to help edit captions.
If your script is in .txt or .rtf file format, you can import it into the Script caption field.
If a script was created with Final Draft, importing it into Storyboard Pro should be your next step. While importing your Final Draft script, you will retain the rich text formatting.
