Overview
This app features basic script formatting functions (such as setting your indents for speakers and dialog) tied into easy to use buttons. Each button will assist you as you switch effortlessly between scenes and action, as well as speakers and dialog. The screenplay formatting tool also includes the basic scene transitions to help save time.

The App will always check your current selection, or cursor location, to decide if you are creating something new, or reformatting something old. If you have text selected, it will adjust the indents of that paragraph to the new format and if the format requires uppercase, it will automatically convert it for you. If you don't, it will ask you what you want to add and insert it directly into the script.

The features the Screenplay Formatter add are; adding Headers, setting Action text, setting a new Speaker, adding Parenthesis to dialog, setting Dialog text, setting New Characters, setting Special Effects, and inserting pre-made transitions.

This is a very crucial and important extension to google docs. It makes google workspace useful to many content creators and filmmakers. I have looked everywhere for an app that allows me to write script but the best, easier and time saving to use was using this extension with google docs. I absolutely love it.

Makes writing screenplays easier on google docs so that my scripts are automatically saved and I can write screenplays all without having to pay for a seperate app. As of December 2023 it still works. IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO ACCESS IT ON GOOGLE DOCS HERE'S WHAT YOU DO Go to the top left of the google docs screen and click the "Extensions" option, screenplay formatter should be one of the options, hover over it then click launch. Hope this helps.

This was the best screenplay formatting extension available until Google stopped allowing support for it. Google is the reason it doesn't work anymore.

I use this all the time to write scripts for ads so I can have clean script breakdowns. It looks professional and looks good to clients.

I’ve installed it and it doesn’t show up anywhere on my IPad Pro. Not in google docs. Not in google drive. Where is it?

Absolutely love this add-on. Very little learning curve (almost none). I am in the middle of scripting a new show and this is a huge help. I can only get it to work on the PC, but I can type a script on the tablet, then format it later. Still a huge time saver!
