Description
"Slugline is outrageously, life-changingly excellent."
– Neil Cross, Emmy nominated writer of Mama and Luther

Slugline is a minimal, distraction-free environment for the most important part of screenwriting-the writing part.

Slugline works with plain text. It automatically turns your writing into a properly formatted screenplay, without you ever needing to press the Tab key or touch the mouse.

No buttons. No settings. Just writing.

  • THE WRITING EXPERIENCE
    Slugline is built for the hard part of screenwriting: the writing part. Slugline gives you the tools you need to craft your story, without your hands ever leaving the keys.

  • THE POWER OF PLAIN
    Slugline uses the free and open Fountain screenplay format, which is nothing more than plain text.​ You can work on your screenplay anywhere, using any writing app, including hundreds of mobile apps. When you open it in Slugline again, everything will be there, properly formatted.​

  • INTEGRATED OUTLINING​
    Start with an outline, then seamlessly transition to writing scenes. Or jot down a placeholder for your third-act twist while you're still crafting your opening pages. Slugline allows you to be as structured as you like, even if that means not at all.​

  • BY FILMMAKERS, FOR FILMMAKERS
    Slugline is the creation of filmmaker Stu Maschwitz and software designer Clinton Torres. Fountain is a collaboration between screenwriter John August and Stu Maschwitz.​ Together, we believe that screenwriting should be simple, smart, and open.

  • What's New
    We. Are. (Still) Back.

    Slugline 1.1.1 fixes an issue where the Help menu would just be a jerk sometimes.

    New Features from Slugline 1.1.0:

    ⋮ When you turn off Character CONT'Ds in Document Settings, they are now really off, even in Preview and Print.
    ⋮ Pressing Tab at the end of a Dialogue element adds a Parenthetical to the next line. (Softly.)
    ⋮ We fixed a rare-but-nasty bug where missing or corrupted system fonts could result in no as-you-type formatting, changing Slugline from a screenwriting app into, well, an app.

    Other changes:

    ⋮ You can now search the help documentation! And Slugline's menus!
    ⋮ We fixed a rare case where long notes could be truncated in the Outline.
    ⋮ Arrow keys now nudge the Preview scroll in a soothing, pleasant manner.
    ⋮ When you start a Character with @, Slugline now offers auto-complete suggestions for other "forced" character names.
    ⋮ Speaking of forcing Character elements, you can now do that from the context menu.

    That's it-for now. Much more to come soon! As always, we are grateful when you take the time to rate or or review Slugline.
