WriterDuet FAQ

IS WEB-BASED SCREENWRITING VIABLE FOR PROFESSIONAL SCREENWRITERS?
Absolutely… with WriterDuet. Other screenwriting websites gave web apps a bad name, falling far below the standard serious writers require. WriterDuet changes that, with a browser-based experience that surpasses traditional (i.e. old) desktop software.


WHAT BROWSER DO YOU RECOMMEND?
Many browsers are supported by WriterDuet, but Chrome is by far the best in terms of speed and features it supports (video chat, browser storage, dictation, and more).


DO YOU SUPPORT MOBILE DEVICES?
Yes! It may vary by device and browser, but I use the web app myself on an iPad Air and Galaxy S4. It’s currently online-only for mobile, but I’m planning to make a specific mobile app later.


ARE PAGE COUNTS THE SAME ON ALL DEVICES AND IN PDF/PRINT?
100%. I hate inconsistency.


DO YOU SUPPORT TV FORMATS AND STAGEPLAYS?
Uh huh! Click the wrench icon, then Misc and set the script type.


ARE SCRIPTS PRIVATE?
WriterDuet uses SSL security, and generates random access codes to share with collaborators you choose. Scripts are not shared except through your requests & guest codes.


CAN I GET MY SCRIPT OUT?
You can export your script as a Final Draft, Celtx, Fountain, or PDF file. You can also import those, plus Word and text.


DOES WRITERDUET OWN MY WRITING?
Definitely not. You retain your rights, and simply grant WriterDuet permission to share and perform (on ReadThrough) scripts as you request. We don’t have any ownership of your work, and only share your scripts in ways you request.


HOW ARE FILES SAVED?
We auto-save all changes on our servers, and you can backup copies to Dropbox, Google Drive, and your computer.


DOES WRITERDUET WORK OFFLINE?
Yes! With WriterDuet Pro, you can seamlessly write with or without an Internet connection. When you’re online, your script will automatically sync.


CAN I GET REVISIONS WITH *s?
Absolutely! View changes via the calendar icon or revision list, then print or download a PDF.


ARE THE PRO & FREE VERSIONS COMPATIBLE?
Totally. Pro writers will have access to more features within a script they’re collaborating on versus a Free user, but Pro and Free users can seamlessly collaborate.

      Not at the moment, but that’s been requested several times recently so it seems like something I should add. FYI, we can export Celtx files, so you can always write in WriterDuet and do the final breakdown/scheduling in Celtx for the time being.
