Say Goodnight, Final Draft

Arc Studio Pro is the app that Final Draft should aspire to. It’s clean, neat and elegant. It helps you focus with your outline to the side and helps you with the pre-writing (populating character names, creating bios, as well as locations and story arcs.

This is a fully featured app as opposed to the extremely watered down version of FD. It allows you to take snapshots, tracks your revision history and creates a character arc timeline which allows you to see the journey of your characters across the entire script.

I highly recommend that you do the pre-writing because it will give you a clear path forward. Some people like to go for it, and the program allows that flexibility.

The app also keeps track of your writing activity and nags you when you’re slacking off (at your direction, of course).

It writes Final Draft files as well as Fountain files, which FD can read if your production company insists on using Final Draft.

The yearly subscription is well worth it.

Great - some bugs

Really enjoy using this program for all my projects. Online and desktop apps are flawless. The ipad app had a weird issue where it was formatting everything with a wide margin on the left. I had to erase and reinstall to fix. Other than that, however. This app is awesome. Keep doing what you’re doing!

- update issue fixed and now this is a 5 star

Amazing Screenwriting Software!

This is by far my favorite screenwriting software! It’s available on iOS, Mac, and browser based! It’s so clean and efficient. The ability to write where ever on any device is so killer and shockingly not something any other platform offers!

The creators are also super friendly and willing to hear feedback! I’m so happy with their apps! Thank you so much ArcStudio team!
