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.

Final Draft Courier Font
Production companies and studios need consistent page counts when they’re budgeting a script.
Final Draft uses its own Courier font to ensure identical pagination on Windows, Macintosh and
the iPad.

In addition to the standard templates that are included in the software package, the Final Draft
Template Library is updated regularly and allows registered users to download over 100 classic
and current television shows, screenplay, stageplay and graphic novel templates.

Format Assistant
This writing tool checks your script for common formatting errors such as missing dialogue, extra
spaces, carriage returns and blank elements. You can set it to run every time you print or only
when you want it to.

Text to Speech
Have Final Draft read your script back to you – you can even assign different voices to your
characters. It’s like having a live script reading in your computer.

The Panels System
Like most writers, you probably need to keep a lot of ideas at the front of your mind while you’re
writing. With the Panels system, you can split your screen into separate panels and view your script
pages in one panel while you view another section of the script or your Index Cards or Scene View
in the other panel. A double-click on any scene will keep the panels in sync.

Writing Management
Use the Statistics report to check how much content you’ve completed in a writing session to
help you reach your writing goals. You can also track things such how often Character A interacts
with Character B.

Remember Workspace
If you are working with multiple drafts, it is important to make sure you are editing the correct
one. With the Workspace preference, you can have Final Draft open all the files you had open in
your last session, in the correct order.

Scene View
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 sync the script to instantly go to any scene you’ve selected.

Index Cards
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 automatically sync the scene selected with your
script page
