Does anyone know if Courier Prime is an acceptable font in the screenplay competition? WriterSolo and WriterDuet use it as their default font. It takes up the same amount of space as Courier New. But it is not listed as an acceptable font variation. I can change my script line by line to Courier New, but wondering first if Courier Prime is considered OK.

Hello, 

I'd say you'll be fine. However, is there a font drop down menu in WriterDuet (document font) to allow you change to either Courier or Courier New to be on the safe side? 
That said, it is industry accepted software. I can't see it being a big deal.
Maybe another forum user can shed some further light on it.
Best of luck.

I always wondered why my scripts looked like they had a slightly darker/bolder font than some other folks, but didn't realize the default font for WriterDuet was Courier Prime instead of Courier New. I learned something new!

But you'll be fine. I've advanced in the Short Screenplay Challenge without even realizing I was writing with Courier Prime, so I don't think judges will mind.

I got an answer from NYCMidnight!

Hi Elizabeth,

As long as the appearance of Courier Prime is very similar to the fonts listed in the rules, it should be fine. Please let us know if you have any other questions or need anything else. Good luck!

That's so welcome! Thanks.

I've always changed from Prime to Courier New before submission, just in case, and it would be great to leave it in Prime which looks so much better.
