Slugline free download for Mac

Minimal screenwriting app.


Slugline is a minimal, distraction-free environment for the most important part of screenwriting: the writing part.

Slugline works with plain text. It automatically turns your writing into a properly formatted screenplay, without you ever needing to press the Tab key or touch the mouse.

No buttons. No settings. Just writing.

What's new in Slugline

Version 1.3.1 (1.0.7):

Note: The downloadable demo is version 1.0.7; the version available for purchase on the Mac App Store is version 1.3.1.

  • Slugline scrolls smoother and keeps up with your typing better, even on very large, complex documents.
  • Slugline should be less greedy with your laptop’s battery.
  • Undo now undoes blocks of typing, rather than one letter at a time.
  • Typing the @ symbol, the trick for forcing a Character element, now brings up an auto-complete menu of any forced Characters already in your screenplay.
  • After pressing Return to choose a Scene Heading prefix (INT, EXT, etc.) from the auto-complete menu, the cursor now remains on the line, so you can keep typing your scene heading.
  • Undoing the creation of a Character/Dialogue pair no longer inserts random garbage into your screenplay.
  • We fixed a potential memory leak.
  • When reverting to a saved document, the “Loading” spinner should go away now, rather than stay there for four to eight years.
  • We fixed some compatibility issues with macOS 10.13 High Sierra that were causing crashes around parentheticals.

Too pricey in my opinion. Ulysses is $44.99 and Scrivener is $45. Those programs do a lot more. Well designed though and slick.

This is one of the small lists of apps that I consider for my needs to be perfect. On top of software that does what it says, the developers respond to feedback and frequently improves the app. I've done a review on the app on youtube under AppLookReviews and you can also go to the review from the link below to get an idea of Slugline:
