Just finished another screenplay written entirely in FadeIn and it just quarter-finaled in a comp. Just a smooth five-star app that delivers the goods.

I'm a professional screenwriter who used Final Draft for many years (too many!), then Craig Mazin talking about this on the ScriptNotes podcast and decided to give it a try. It does everything better, is much cheaper, is constantly being updated, and has never once crashed on me. My one complaint about the inability to change fonts and sizes on the cover page was recently rectified in an update, so all I can say is: I love this app!

After years spent using Movie Magic Screenwriter (bloated and expensive) and Montage (buggy and antiquated), I decided to give Fade In a try. It took me all of about three minutes to realize that the program works completely intuitively, has all the features I'm likely to ever need, and is very reasonably priced. I'm loving it so far. The one question I had was very politely answered by the developer within two hours of my email. To be honest, I couldn't be happier with this program.

I would love to jump over to this… unfortunately, the fatal flaw with Fountain/Fade In/Highland for me is that they are screenplay only. If any of them had a stageplay option, I would be able to bail from Final Draft completely. Unfortunately, FD is the only one with templates for playwrights.

on mac in reformat assistant pressing numbers on the keyboard doesn't do anything. P.S. do you have plans of implementing the functions of FD tagger?

Finally, a smart, rock solid Screenwriting app based on Fountain. It is every inch a Final Draft contender and the way the app's developer has set up the Reports and other critical functions, users probably will be able to suggest very workable additions. For example, I can visualise a report that allows a writer to both see and edit a single character's dialogue at the same time. This would enable a writer to 'ear test' each character's dialogue seperately and in context. This alone would be worth the honest price of Fade In. A very feasible addition and one the developer can work on in due course in Fountain. I have been using Fade In for the last three months and Fade In has not skipped a beat. I have not missed Final Draft for moment. It is fairly priced at about the same as Scrivener and about one third the price of the venerable Final Draft. It does everything Final Draft does and does it all superbly well. One of the best purchases I have made as a working screenwriter. Highly reconmmended!

the best and only real alternative to final draft, which intentionally (it seems) doesn't support any language other than the ones they provide proofing dicts for. if only the dev of Fade In could find a way to implement that patented(?) thingy of FD when you just press the tab button another thing I'd do if i was the dev is import an enormous FD script with the FD template and the same font and compare the amount of pages. that's rather important for A.D.'s it also would be a nice idea to check the ability to import a Fade In FD exported script into Movie Magic Scheduling (and the likes?)
