Final Draft Mac With License Keys Free Download [Latest] 2023
Final Draft Mac is one of the most popular macOS utilities designed to allow professional writers to make sure that their movie scripts and stage plays are as correct as possible and respect all the industry standards before delivering them to the production team.
Powerful script editor with advanced formatting features
Moreover, Final Draft License Keys features a powerful word processing engine combined with scripting formatting, which makes it suitable for professional use. Final Draft also comes with a panel system that enables you to easily keep your writing in sync with scene views and index cards.
In addition, the Final Draft Serial Keys application makes it much easier for you to rapidly and effortlessly jot down your ideas into separate panels, so you can access them at a later time.
Inbuilt Screenplay Review Tools
Furthermore, Final Draft Mac Free Download allows you to keep track of ideas and feedback for your current script, and it also includes a ScriptNotes feature that makes it easy for you to review your own scripts, or the ones written by others.
What is more, Final Draft Mac includes some tools designed specifically for writing movie scripts, such as screenplay templates. These will help you start from a familiar point instead of starting from scratch, without any guidance.
Large collection of script templates
There also are multiple types of TV templates categorized according to their genre, show length and structure. With the help of Final Draft, you will also be able to script musicals and theatrical comedies, by taking advantage of the bundled and vast script template collection.
On top of that, Final Draft Serial Keys includes a thesaurus and dictionary function that automatically notifies and corrects you when you make a mistake. It also comes with an inbuilt revision mode that helps you review and track all changes made to your draft, from its initial version to the final product.
Robust script pagination assistant
As an extra bonus, Final Draft Mac Free Download bundles multiple pagination modes in conformity with industry standard and it also comes with a formatting assistant that scans your script for any error, allowing you to effortlessly and quickly make the necessary changes so that the final product does not feature any mistakes.
Final Draft Mac will also enable you to outline your story the way you want to and to change your script’s structure just by dragging and dropping the scenes within it.
Comprehensive and well-rounded script editor for the Mac
To sum it all up, Final Draft Mac is a full-featured and complex screenplay creator and editor, designed from the get-go to offer you all the tools you need to make sure that you deliver professional and high-quality scripts each time.
Professional screenwriters use Final Draft, and you should too, if that’s your field. The app has smart auto-suggestions for formatting your work to industry standards. It compiles lists of characters and scene locations automatically. A Beat Board feature replicates the old notecard approach to arranging scenes, and a Story Map helps keep the story on target for pacing and script length. Among writing apps, Final Draft is one of the most expensive products you can buy, but it’s worth the price and sells for a one-time fee rather than as a recurring subscription. Final Draft is a PCMag Editors’ Choice winner for screenwriting software and one of the best apps for writers in general.
Collaboration With Final Cut
Very few writing apps support collaboration, but Final Draft does. If you work with a writer partner or even as part of a writing team, collaboration features are not only desirable; they’re necessary.
If you’re not primarily a screenwriter, other apps are worth investigating because they have some advantages for novelists and book authors. Our favorites among them are Scrivener, which is available for both Windows and macOS and the Mac-only Ulysses. They’re also Editors’ Choice winners. Beyond those, there are wonderful, inexpensive writing apps that are perfectly suitable for shorter and less structured content, such as articles and marketing copy. When you need help organizing and formatting large amounts of content, however, Final Draft, Scrivener, and Ulysses are the best writing apps on the market.
Three features worth highlighting are 1) Focus Mode, 2) Track Changes, and 3) a PDF import tool. Focus Mode lets you minimize distractions while working on your script. Track Changes primarily makes the collaboration options in Final Draft better. It works much like other apps that offer Track Changes, with different colors tracking changes of different collaborators, the ability to accept and reject changes individually or globally, and so forth. The PDF import tool lets you upload a PDF and convert it to editable text. When you upload PDFs of screenplays and other scripts, Final Draft interprets the formatting, too. I tested this feature and it worked very well, with only minimal cleanup needed.
How Much Does Final Draft Cost?
Final Draft is available for macOS and Windows ($249), with a version called Final Draft Mobile available as an iPad app and an iPhone app (both for $9.99). There’s no Android app. The desktop software is not cheap, but the good news is that with a purchase, you can install Final Draft on two machines. Additionally, there are discounts for students, and sometimes the app goes on sale for around $199. Mind you, these are one-time fees and not recurring subscription costs. You buy the software once and own it for life, though you will have to pay for upgrades once every few years if you want them.
You can install Final Draft and try it for 30 days without providing a credit card. If you buy the app, you get a license code via email that you enter the next time you launch it.
The iPad and iPhone apps sell separately, and you can access your scripts through it when you save them to Dropbox or iCloud (you can also get them via email, which is a less elegant solution). It’s worth adding the mobile app if you’re the type of writer who prefers to jot down ideas and notes directly into your scripts rather than in a separate note-taking app.
How Does Final Draft’s Price Compare?
Final Draft’s $249 sticker price might induce sticker shock for some. Frankly, it’s more expensive than any other writing app I’ve reviewed.
Fade In, for example, costs only $79.95, and it’s available for all major platforms and Linux. The mobile apps cost $4.99. Similar to Final Draft, Fade In focuses on screenplay writing. It has many of the same tools as Final Draft, including index cards, collaboration, and the ability to upload PDFs of scripts and have them converted to an editable script form.
Most other writing apps charge less for their desktop editions, but more for their mobile apps. Scrivener, for example, costs $49 for the Windows or macOS app and $19.99 for the iPhone and iPad apps. Those are one-time fees.
Ulysses’ price has gone up in recent years and now costs $49.99 per year or $5.99 per month (which works out to about $72 per year). The iPhone and iPad apps are included.
There are less expensive writing apps, but they aren’t nearly as sophisticated as any of the ones mentioned so far. iA Writer, for instance, is much cheaper at $29.99 (macOS, Windows), although its apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android cost an additional $29.99 each. That said, iA Writer is positioned as a distraction-free writing tool, and it doesn’t have much to it. There are no libraries, beat boards, storyboards, character sheets, or other tools for organizing your writing. It’s more of a typing app, really, with a few neat features and export capabilities.
WriteRoom is an extremely inexpensive app at just $9.99, and—like IA Writer—it aims to eliminate distractions. It lets you type to your heart’s content in a minimalist editor, though it’s only available for macOS.
Final Draft Basics
Final Draft’s strength is that it helps screenwriters format their scripts to industry standards. In the film and television industries, everyone on the production needs to be able to look at a script and immediately know what’s a line of dialogue, versus action, versus a description of a shot, and so forth. It’s all done through formatting.
For example, before a line of dialogue is the name of the speaking character in all caps and centered. Scene settings are written using standard abbreviations, like INT. for interior and EXT. for exterior. Final Draft makes it dead simple to get this formatting right.
As you type, Final Draft intuits what type of line you’re writing and offers appropriate suggestions for both formatting and auto-fill. For example, let’s say two characters, Liz and Jack, have both spoken one line to each other. Final Draft might guess that there will be another line of dialogue back because it’s Liz’s turn to respond. The app will automatically center your next line and use all caps to suggest “LIZ.” If that’s right, you can hit enter to accept it and move along. If the suggestion is incorrect, you can keep typing the correct information and format it appropriately using a selector that’s always available at the bottom of the screen.
As you type character names and format them, Final Draft knows they are characters and then compiles them into a list, which appears in a separate window. This window, called the Navigator, contains other metadata the app compiles automatically, too, such as a list of scene settings. You can add non-speaking characters to the list of people who appear in the scene since those roles aren’t added automatically.
- Final Draft offers plenty of options for how you can view your script.
- As mentioned, the Story Map timeline appears in the toolbar; you also have the option to hide it.
- Split screen views, which let you write in one window while referring to other parts of your script in a second window, can be either vertical or horizontal.
- There are also other views that let you see the pages with or without page numbers, page breaks, and other components.
- Final Draft’s support for collaboration has improved considerably in recent releases.
- It’s now much more similar to what you find in Google Docs, Microsoft Word, or any other office app that offers real-time co-writing and editing.
- To collaborate, everyone must own a copy of Final Draft.
- One person starts a session by opening a script (or starting a new one) and generating a session ID.
- That lead author then has to share the session ID with the other collaborators for them to join.
- When more than one person has joined the session, a chat box appears for communication, with a unique color next to each person’s name.
- That color will then correspond to their cursor as they edit. If you want to review everyone’s edits before accepting or rejecting them, the lead author must enable Track Changes, as it isn’t on by default.
- The chatbox lets everyone communicate while editing and reading together.
- A refresh button lets the lead author (and only the lead author) force a sync to all collaborators’ screens, which is a fail-safe if changes don’t appear for someone.

You can collaborate on Script Notes and in the Beat Board, although not quite in real-time. When one collaborator creates a new note in either area, that note is locked until they finish and close it out. Then, other collaborators can read and edit it. Compared to how the collaboration tools worked in past editions of Final Draft, version 12 represents a remarkable improvement.
An auto-save function is on by default, but it saves only every 15 minutes. The best you can do with the auto-save function, which is in Preferences, is to configure it to back up your work every three minutes. That’s still weak compared with other business apps for writing, including plain old word processors, that sync or backup your work with every keystroke.
If you want to retrieve revision histories, make sure the auto-backup feature is enabled. It saves a copy of your work to a local folder on your computer every few minutes, and you can adjust the number of backups it creates (1,000 is the default). If you want to restore one, you have to open that file separately.
