Info updated on:

Final Draft 12 is an extensive word processing program that can be used by writing enthusiasts or professionals to create TV or movie scripts by using multiple built-in templates.
Its interface is characterized by functionality, having an intuitive main menu, large toolbar icons and well-delimited screen areas. It includes two themes, but the fonts have a poor contrast and the themes lack advanced customization options.

When it comes to its functionalities, Final Draft 12 allows individuals to keep a record of the script edits, so you can later choose either to accept or reject those changes. If you're working on a large scale project that includes multiple collaborators, this utility supports real-time writing on both the script and the Beat Board. In case you own a PDF script and you want to edit it, you can simple import the file and convert it to an editable Final Draft file.

One of the most impressive features included is represented by the possibility of writing screenplays without touching the keyboard by only using the Mac Dictation.

All things considered, Final Draft 12 is a comprehensive tool for writing TV or movie screenplays. The price is a bit high, but it is worth it.
