of WP 6.1 for Windows version: there's a new shareware
download available, Screenwright(R), a system which automates
the screenwriting process to a degree approached before now only

glossary, and inserts them into your screenplay in the normal
dialogue/slugline/narrative formats. The software consists of two

advantage of an array of advanced formatting routines to continue
on through a production version. The system is capable of inserting
two-column dialogue, left- and right-margin scene numbers (plus
A/B scenes), A/B/run page numbers, changed text asterisks,

information invaluable to any screenwriter: guild

standard for script revision pages, plus areas to store and display
your personal phone contacts and script notes.

WPWin 6.1 version described above is available for evaluation
via download (if any links don't respond
the first time, don't worry - just bookmark this page, and try
