Overview
Easily preview and export your Fountain.io formatted scripts as PDF for sharing.
Check your Fountain.io syntax by previewing the entire document or make a selection to preview a section.  Generate a properly formatted PDF for sharing.

Parsing is done based on the Fountain.js library created by Matt Daly.  The library covers the vast majority of the commands used in day-to-day writing, but there are a few edge cases that do not behave as expected.  So far, they are:

* @ and ! markers are not handled properly

Please let me know any other issues you find.

Version 12 - Hide section and synopsis text per Fountain rules
Version 11 - Create page breaks in the PDF output per Fountain rules

Works well! Also, the developer responds quickly, when bugs arise.

Er, Pardon me from an old timer, but maybe I haven't played around with this enough. But just 'how' is a pdf made and shared? I feel like I'm living up to my 'technically challenged' moniker!

Super helpful. I was able to spin up a script environment and start live co-writing in a matter of minutes, with no training hurdles. Preview sidebar works well (except for inline comments) and PDF export works well.

Needs some work before I can use it for real. The preview is in a narrow sidebar that makes it pretty useless. But worse than that, the final pdf output doesn't reflect proper screenplay formatting. The margins are completely wrong and the fonts are all over the place. I can't submit a script generated from this. I love that somebody is trying to achieve this! I hope the dev can sort it out!

Cool ADD-ON for fountain users ... but it's not great - YET! I have the following suggestions which would make this add-on amazing: ** Make the preview LIVE, to see real-time edits ** Have the preview & the document's vertical scroll be in sync with each other ** make the preview pane have a re-sizable width I WOULD PAY FOR THESE FEATURES!! ALSO: *** make the preview pane editable *** display page number and page breaks accurately (this is an edited review, based on my wish for this add-on to be developed further)
