Printing or Downloading

To Print or export a PDF of your scripts and other documents, select the ‘Print/PDF’ from the File menu. This will open the print menu.

From here, you can customize your print options. 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 Adds Script Notes as footnotes to pages, with color-coded icons at the corresponding page position.
Script with Color Revisions If your script is in Revision Mode, this option adds color-coded indicators for all revised script content.
Current Revisions Only If you have used Revision Mode, this option selects only those pages affected by your most recent revisions.


Watermarks

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 page type, margins, and scale – depending on the settings predefined by your browser and printer.

Browser Adjust Details Create PDF
Chrome Click 'More Options' Destination: 'Save as PDF'
Firefox Click 'Show Details' PDF dropdown menu: Save as PDF
Safari Click 'Show Details' PDF dropdown menu: Save as PDF


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.
