Screen Play - page count

Is there a way to get a display of the page count on a screenplay format project?

I saw the information under Project Statistics, but I wasn’t sure that was factoring in the formatting as much as just converting based on word count.


Project Statistics is exactly what you want for this; it takes the page count from the compile settings, so it will use whatever you have set in that–for a screenplay, you presumably won’t be overriding formatting or adding extra text during compile (such as you might do with a novel, to add “Chapter One” or so on), but you can make sure the Page Setup details are correct for the page size and margins. If you’re compiling the FDX format, you may get a slightly different number once Final Draft lays it out for you, since it has more advanced scripting features and will be able to handle page breaks more intelligently, but you should be close.
