Designed for writers of film, TV, and online movie scripts, DubScript is an industry-strength, open-standard screenplay editor. Now works on Chromebooks!

"Great for beginning screenwriters... full-featured [and] good-looking..."
--New York Times

Read Final Draft (.fdx) or Fountain formats and edit in plain-text for auto-formatted screenplay output to print, PDF, and .fdx.

Plain-text in. Screenplay out.

Create a new script and write naturally and quickly in the free-flowing plain-text editor -- without the typical "screenplay software formatting stuff" getting in your way. Don't break your writing flow to manually format or indent character, slug line, or action items. Write uninterrupted-- scenes start with INT. or EXT, capitalize CHARACTER names, double-space between dialog.

In other words, make your screenplay look "screenplayish". The editor (over 800 fonts to choose from!) helps by auto-suggesting character names and locations as you go.

Save straight to your device's storage- no online connection required. Or, if you'd like, save direct to Google Drive, Box, and other cloud services.

All finished? With a single swipe, DubScript does the hard formatting for you! Proper indentation, page breaks, CONT'Ds, page numbering, margins, and text styling appear like magic!

Now you have a proper screenplay. But before you save to PDF or print to paper, don't forget to add a quick title page. It's as simple to add scene numbers, side-by-side dialogue, centered text, notes, page breaks, and more.

"Open" is good. Vendor "lock in" sucks.

DubScript supports Fountain markup-- a popular, open standard for writing movie industry scripts. Writing in plain-text means your screenplay file is fully compatible with any old plain-text editor. To exchange with other programs, you literally just copy and paste. Or hit the Share button to forward yourself (or your agent) a quick off-device backup via an email or messaging app.
