Built-in functions for scheduling and organising your storyline are useful for both screenwriting and novelists. It can be a little difficult to interoperate, but there are other applications that can handle reading and converting the Celtex file formats, so they are not included. There is still the original line of work out there.
The best way is to consider Fountain as a discount for the script. It is a relatively straightforward text file published under an MIT-licence. That means you can create your script in any text editing program you like. They can even get Fountain-Syntax highlighting enhancements for editing in Emacs or VP.
Fountain is a great place to write a screenplay if you are already proficient in the basics of screenplay sizing. The majority of the notes on these syntaxes are things that scriptwriters have of course already included as part of their work. So, even if you don't write rough Fountainyntax in a text editors, it's really the best option for screenwriting tool compatibility.
Plus, as you will next be reading, Trelby and'afterwriting supports Fountain for import and export. But if you need a stand-alone WYSIWYG screenplay app, Trelby is not a poor option. After all, it is a web app for writing scripts. That knot. The. js app is available under an MIT licence and has seen very brisk evolution on its GitHub page.
It is also very simple to fetch all the code and run it on your own computer off-line. I wrote my own script in a simple text edit (in my case using a.... yes, vim) in rough Fountain, then using'afterwriting to convert to PDF for delivery/sharing.
I' m missing some of the comfort functions like built-in storylines and personality profile, but for me these are really just comforts. And, when I'm true to myself, they are treated better in stand-alone applications than built-in functions that get in the way more often than they help.
