To Print or export a PDF of your scripts and other documents, select the ‘Print/Download PDF’ from the File menu. This will open the print menu.
From here, you can customize your print options before using the "Download" button to save a PDF copy of your content. Note that some options are only available within specific plans.
Print the Following
|Script Only||Prints just the script, without footnotes or Title Page.|
|Script & Title Page||Prints the script and the title page, without footnotes.|
|Scene List||Adds a list of scene headings numbered in chronological order, along with their corresponding page position.|
|Characters||Adds a list of characters (with associated dialogue) in order of appearance, along with number of dialogue lines they have, and in which scene they first appear.|
|Script with Footnotes|
|Script with Color Revisions||If your script is in Revision Mode, this option adds color-coded indicators for all revised script content. Your edits will appear in industry-standard colour on the screen. When you print that edited script, each changed lined will have an asterisk on either side to make them easy to spot.|
|Current Revisions Only||If you have used Revision Mode, this option selects only those pages affected by your most recent revisions.|
To add a watermark, check ‘Show Watermark’ and enter your text in the space provided. This will add your watermark to each page of your printout / PDF (title page excluded).
Lines between Scenes
You can insert additional lines between scenes and a page break after each scene.
These are helpful options that create more 'white space' on the page so you can more easily add handwritten notes to your printout.
Note that these changes only apply to the current printout, do not affect the studio version of the script, and result in page count variations to between your printout and the original script. You can review the preview panel to see the effects of these changes.
Simplified Printing Dialog
Some scripts, most commonly those featuring characters outside of the Latin alphabet, will be processed through the Simplified Printing Dialog.
This dialog prepares your script to be printed according to your browser's built-in printing functions. Printing in this manner may require adjustments to headers & footers and page count (best to deselect them for the print options), page type, margins, and scale – depending on the settings predefined by your browser and printer.

Occasionally, you may receive this dialog for a script not featuring non-Latin languages or non-standard symbols. If so, see our Importing – Tips & Best Practices article. Review the print preview for anomalous characters, replace them with manual keystrokes, and reopen the print dialog.
