This feature is extremely useful since it allows the user to select one or more individual Index Card Summaries and copy the content directly into the script

New features include Text Highlighting, Spotlight Search (Mac only), and newly added templates. Perhaps the most practical new tool is the Send to Script feature. "This feature is extremely useful since it allows the user to select one or more individual Index Card Summaries and copy the content directly into the script," states John Cornelius, CTO at Final Draft, Inc.

Another valuable addition is the new 1-3-5 Story Structure outlining template. "The 1-3-5 template is based on the book it is named for which guides writers through the nine essential elements needed to sell their first script," says Alejandro Seri, Final Draft, Inc. Director of Corporate Marketing. Created by the book's author and former story analyst, Donna Michelle Anderson (aka DMA), this template will offer writers insider assistance from the screenplay buyer's point-of-view and more. "Final Draft, Inc. plans to offer tutorials and webinars with DMA to further educate writers on the 1-3-5 system and how it can apply to any script," adds Seri.

Some of the most notable improvements to the software have been with the Script Compare, Print to PDF, and Locked Pages/Revision Mode features. All of the improvements and added enhancements have been based on user feedback. "We try our best to give our writers what they want," affirms Marc Madnick, CEO of Final Draft, Inc.

This update expresses Final Draft, Inc's commitment to their valued users and an effort to improve the writing experience for all scriptwriters by continuing to incorporate the features they request.
