"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 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" isn't.
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.
