free playwriting software
« on: December 06, 2006, 09:24:54 AM »
Hi Everyone,
I'm new to this group. Been reading some of the posts regarding free writing software. Now I have a lot of places to check out. Anyone know of any playwriting software, free or reasonable? There's lots of formatting that goes with this type of writing and that's what I'm interested in. Thanks lane

I have no idea where to find anything of the sort.  Sorry.  But I thought you'd like to know, this is in the wrong section completely.  You're not likely to get many responses to it here.

Hey, thanks a lot. I'm changing a book I've written (unpub) into a stage play which I'm going to submit to a local theater in my area. I'll check this out. 'lane

This is kind of an old thread, but there's a new playwriting tool people might be interested in - Zhura (http:/www.zhura.com).  They are free online scriptwriting software and include a great Stage Play format.  You can even print out directly from their site into PDF.  Check it out!

If memory serves, this isn't compatible with Microsoft Vista - and only just scrapes by on XP.

Any aware if there has been a version of SSG which has kept pace with desktop packages and software?
