Structure Points in Story Map
Keep track of your narrative arc by marking Structure Points in the Story Map. Where should your character be emotionally at this point in the script? Add a beat! Now you can easily plan and track tentpole moments of your screenplay by placing easy-to-use beats and structure points in your Story Map.
Manage the pace and flow of your story and keep track of every scene's information with this sortable, customizable floating palette. Final Draft offers the ability to filter by keyword, allowing you to see important scene details whenever you need them.
ScriptNotes are designed to hold your ideas, suggestions, or scene fragments that you've cut but don't want to toss - even hyperlinks to important information. You are able to see, sort and filter ScriptNotes and General Notes while you organize by name, type and color. The color-coded ScriptNote markers appear in the right margin without taking up space within your script, while General Notes appear in your Navigator for easy reference.
Keep track of all of your characters' arcs via individual Character Beats assigned to particular scenes. Non-speaking characters can be added to or deleted from any scene, helping you keep track of everyone even if they have no lines in a certain scene.
Final Draft has double-sided cards that display the script's scene on one side and the summary on the other. The summary view allows you to enter text directly into the index card - plot points, notes, sequence or act markers, comments, locations, blocking - anything you need to build and organize your story.
These notes sync with the Scene Navigator, so any information you add there will automatically appear on the corresponding card. Select and rearrange multiple cards at once if you need to reorder your scenes. Print your index cards directly on 3x5 or 4x6 cards for use in the "traditional" way if you want to visualize and organize scenes outside of the application. Double-clicking on a card in split-panel view will bring you to that page in the script.
Scene View gives you a "high-altitude" look at your script and you can move scenes around to further refine your story. Insert new scenes easily and hide or show information important to you such as the scene's action, title and summary. Assign colors to each scene by any criteria, such as storyline, character, location, time of day and more. Print your scene view or just view it alongside the script. With a double-click you can instantly go to any scene in the script you've selected.
Send to Script
Select one or more individual Index Card Summaries and copy the content directly into the script. If there is only a Scene Heading, the content will appear directly below the Scene Heading as an Action element. Otherwise, the text will appear at the end of any previously existing content in the scene.
The Final Draft Template Library allows registered users to download over 100 classic and current television shows, screenplay, stageplay and graphic novel templates. In addition to the built-in, industry-approved standard templates, see how current shows format their scripts.
Replace Character Names Globally
Final Draft will globally change a character's name in script elements like dialogue and action and will retain the proper casing without having to do a "find and replace." It will also change the name in all metadata, such as SmartType lists and the Navigator.
Dictionary and Thesaurus
SmartType list words are automatically integrated in the spell-checker that features almost more than 300 new words. Additionally, the thesaurus is in the context menu, so a right-click will give you alternative words to help make your story as vivid as possible. They are available in English, UK English, Canadian English, Spanish, French, German, and several other languages.
Colored Revised Pages
When you export to PDF, revised pages can be colored a solid Blue, Pink, Yellow, Green, etc. When you're working in an FDX file, the revised page will have the revision set's color on the left and right borders only. Writing in clean white is easy on the eyes and there will be no doubt as to which revision set you're working in.
Have Final Draft read your script read back to you. Different voices can even be assigned to differentiate between characters.
Customizable Keyboard Shortcuts
If you prefer keyboard shortcuts and macros you're already used to, Final Draft allows you to customize your workflow for your writing needs.
