Slugline

You probably saw this coming.

Slugline is an app for writing screenplays. It uses Fountain as its native file format. It brings the power and simplicity of plain text to screenwriting, without sacrificing features that screenwriters need. In fact, Slugline is focused entirely on the writing part of screenwriting. It has annotation, integrated outlining, and Fountain’s ability to omit text without deleting it, all driven by the text you type.

Your files are plain text, editable with any writing software, on any device. But when you print them from Slugline, they appear as a perfect, industry-standard screenplay. Better, in fact, because Slugline optionally lets you use Courier Prime.

Read more at the new Slugline blog, follow SluglineApp on Twitter, or just head on over to the Mac app store, where Slugline is exclusively available for $39.99.

Well, it sounds pretty cool. I am in a PC environment though, so I can't give it a try. Any plans to eventually bring Slugline to the land of PC?

Thanks Stu,
The link to Fountain has a typo... and pc support would make this truly for everyone!
Thank you for all your work.

Amongst other nice features, the Autocomplete feature (via Tab key) sounds like a really great idea. I imagine it working like the autocomplete menu in Nuke! :)

Cool stuff. Did you shoot the coffe shop scene at Boot and Shoe Service?

Yep! The birthplace of Slugline.
