I'm facing a similar problem when I update my operating system on my Mac -- my Final Draft 9 will cease to function, forcing me to do one of two things: don't upgrade my OS, or shell out a hefty sum to get the latest version.

One of the writers here introduced me to WriterDuet, the free version, and it basically does all that I need it to do, and it's pretty flexible in saving to other file formats, like Final Draft, Celtx and PDF. So, as soon as I update my OS, I'll be switching over to WriterDuet full time and saying goodbye to a very old friend.

I rescind my recommendation of Celtx. My new opinion is that it is buggy garbage and I will now be following this thread to make a switch before short screenplay LOL

I'm in the Final Draft camp.  Expensive, but so is time.  Especially during contests. 

By the time the contest ends I remember how to use it again.  Big smile

Tracy – I’m using that little download button. My numbers just won’t show up. Blargh. I can fix it manually this time, but I’ll have to figure out why it isn’t working for me. Figuring out the title page was another ball of fun. Ha. Hope things are running smoothly for you!

 

Stephen – You’ve sold me on not looking at Trelby anymore. Thank you! I haven’t investigated FadeIn, but I’m going to look at MovieMaker after this contest. Yes, the final round of competition is a super fun time to try and learn something completely new. It hasn’t caused me any anxiety at all, no way. LOL Thanks for the good wishes!
