"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 "screenplay software formatting stuff" getting in your way. Don't break your writing flow to manually format or indent characters, slug lines, parentheticals, or action. 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 (840+ fonts to choose from!) helps with auto-suggestions as you go.
Save to your device's storage- no online connection required. Or save direct to Google Drive, Box, and other cloud services.
Finished? With a single swipe, DubScript does the hard formatting for you! Indentation, page breaks, CONT'Ds, page numbering, margins, and text styling appear like magic!
Now you have a proper screenplay. But before you make a PDF or print to paper, add a quick title page. It's just as easy to add scene numbers, side-by-side dialogue, centered text, notes, and page breaks.
"Open" is good. Vendor "lock in" sucks.
DubScript supports Fountain markup-- a popular, open standard for writing scripts in plain-text. This means your screenplay file is fully-compatible with any old plain-text editor. To exchange with other apps, 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.
Learn more about Fountain markup at https://fountain.io -- including a list of compatible Fountain apps for Mac, iOS, Linux, and Windows.
