New in Version 6:

What Does a Script Formatter Do?
Writing scripts for film, television, and theater has traditionally been a time-consuming task. There are many elements in a script that must be correctly placed in your script. Following these conventions is essential in making sure your script is receiving proper attention from agents, producers and contests.

Screenwriter 6 works by your side, automatically formatting action, character name, dialog and other elements as you write your script. Even better, there are no function keys or special command keys to memorize-your fingers stay on the keyboard, always ready for creative thoughts to flow onto the page!

FREE Technical Support!
Unlike Final Draft, technical support for Movie Magic Screenwriter is provided at no additional charge. Whether you call by phone, fax or email your questions, or visit our first rate support web site, you are not charged by the minute (or at all) for technical support.

Why Movie Magic Screenwriter?
All writing tools are not created equal. Naturally, Screenwriter uses a simple TAB-ENTER system to quickly get your creative thoughts flowing into the computer. Screenwriter has index cards, script notes, simple entry of character names, spell-checking, and of course, smart margin changing. The comparison ends here.

Screenwriter alone has a full suite of internet features, such as real-time internet collaboration, online script registration, and export to Adobe Acrobat PDF format; superior production features, such as built-in script breakdown and detailed export to Movie Magic Scheduling; Script Analysis features; and the finest import and export facilities in the world of screenwriting.

Nothing Could Be Easier
Just hit the "Tab" and "Enter" keys to move between different script elements such as Character, Dialogue, Action, etc. That's all you need to know! Since Screenwriter is instantly and automatically handling all the hassles of Industry Standard Formatting, you can focus on writing your story as fast as you can get your thoughts onto the screen!.

Integrated Outlining
Just Screenwriter 6's new outline feature lets you outline levels up to thirty levels deep. Now it's easier than ever to block in your ideas wherever you want in the document. Take advantage of Screenwriters instructional templates, such as the one for classic film structure, and see for yourself how useful this feature can be for your writing.

Move Through Your Script with the Click of a Button
Instantly find and jump to any scene in your script with NaviDoc Scenes panel. The Scenes panel lets you sort the scenes by different criteria without affecting the document. It also can show you as many lines of a scene as you want: from one to everything! This helps to quickly identify the scene you are searching for.

Better Than Post-its
Jot down revision notes, casting suggestions, and research questions quicker than you can slap on a Post-it. The new NaviDoc Note panel feature allows you to quickly organize, access, view and print your script notes. You can hide or show your notes, and print them separately in a report with page-number references. You may even create dozens of different, color-coded note categories.

Brainstorm and Organize Your Ideas
Do you prefer to work with index cards? Screenwriter's built-in index card system lets you edit your screenplay and rearrange scenes on fully editable index cards-on-screen! As you develop a new story, you'll be able to quickly write desired scenes, sequences, and plot points on blank index cards and easily shuffle the scenes as the plot and story are fleshed out. Screenwriter even reformats and re-numbers your scenes for you!
