NovaMind Screenwriter

The screenwriting functionality in the Mac version of NovaMind Platinum has been completely rewritten over the last 6 months, and now includes the following capabilities:

Screenplay formatting to industry standards for font, margin settings, line spacing, mores, continueds, section standards and page numbering
Fully configurable cycling through section types on return and tab keypresses
Automatic sentence casing of dialogues and actions
Text completions for character names, scene headings, scene location and time, character parentheticals, and transitions
Orphan protection of dialogs so they are not split from their character names
Ability to work with the whole screenplay in a single view or just one branch at a time
Both import and export to and from Movie Magic and Final Draft
Configurable initial section type for branches
Configurable mores and continueds for characters and scenes, including automatic character continueds and scene number continueds
Configurable scene numbering in the margins on both sides
Configurable indents and capitalization for sections, as well as overall page layout settings
Global replace of character names and scene locations
Ability to skip directly to the next or previous branch with script attached, or just to the next or previous branch, from within the screenwriter window
Ability to enable or disable script on a branch either from within the screenwriter window or on the Mind Map, or from within the print or export dialogs
Ability to jump directly to scenes or page numbers within the screenplay either using the mouse or by command key
Ability to capitalize or lower case selected text
Ability to scale the screenplay text for easier readability
Ability to set the scene numbering and continuations for printing independently of the editor
Ability to print just a single branch, a range of scenes, or a range of pages of the script
Ability to include mind map related text (branch titles, branch notes, attached text) in the printed or exported screenplay
The combination of screenwriting and mind mapping is totally unique to NovaMind, and provides everything you need to write and publish your screenplay directly from within NovaMind.


The only problem is you need Leopard to run it.
