    Version: Celtx 2.9.1

    Pros

    Easy to use
    Nice layout

    If you really can't afford to buy a program then this is the one

    Cons

    Perhaps a bit basic

    "Free Workhorse!"

    October 24, 2012   |   By BelloBooks

    Version: Celtx 2.9.1

    Pros

    Free LE version, portable, reasonable script formatting!

    Cons

    No export to other formats (DOC/RTF/TXT)!

    Summary

    It is really a free horse with a built-in spellchecker, so we shouldn't look it in the mouth, but--honestly--the older versions had "export to" [other text formats], which was fantastic! You could export to MS Word and do final tweaks there (e.g., add bolds, change fonts, or at least select Courier, which is the only proper Hollywood-format font for movie scripts.) Yet as soon as Celtx became commercial, that goodie disappeared like a raindrop of hope in the desert! Now, to trick the system, one must install a 2nd party Print-to-PDF tool, and then save from Adobe PDF to TXT or DOC. That's just ... grrrr!

    Other than that, the good old free horse is yours for the taking, and it can still plow well, if you don't need to export to DOC.

    PS Hence, many screenwriters say that creating your own DOT template for MS Word or Open Office is a far better solution to all the 'professional' software problems in the field. I just did that and I feel free bird again. Godspeed!

    "The software is great and easy to use."

    October 19, 2012   |   By manofmars1

    Version: Celtx 2.9.1

    Pros

    It gives me everything that I need to complete my project. I am very new at writing and possibly don't understand all that is needed,but so far this has been great.

    Cons

    No negatives at this point

    Summary

    Great product

    "Great starter's tool"

    January 05, 2012   |   By britgeekgrrl

    Version: Celtx 2.9.1

    Pros

    It's free! Yeah, there's a hook in the bait, but the free features are pretty awesome. For hobbyists such as myself, it beats the heck out of shelling out for Final Draft...

    Cons

    It might be the older version I'm running, but the formatting of the text on the 'scratchpad' area occasionally gets a mind of it's own, ditto the index card scene breakdown.

    "Seems pretty good, but not entirely free"

    December 09, 2011   |   By Vanillaman

    Version: Celtx 2.9.1

    Pros

    Good program for writers, and has access to other projects. It is s good way to archive.

    Cons

    When you download it, you realise that it's a hook, as to gain its full potential you must pay for other features.

    Summary

    Good program, but beware, as it isn't really free

    "Great tool for writers"

    November 12, 2011   |   By gabjag

    Version: Celtx 2.9.1

    Pros

    It's free and it does what most other screenplay software applications do

    Cons

    The only "con" with this software is the strange difference between the "non-formatted" editor (which you use to do all of your writing) and the "formatted" screen (which takes a few seconds each time you click on it, to formally format your writings)

    Summary

    I have not yet had any issues with Celtx -- seems pretty stable and reliable. Would recommend screenwriters try it before spending money on a similar tool
