The only way you can get your script out of Celtx is as a pdf. But there is a workaround, which I will share with you here. Celtx to Final Draft This way is a bit more tricky, but still possible relatively easy. And it is absolutely FREE and without any additional software that you not already own. Copy the text to the clipboard by pressing Cmd-C or Ctrl-C. Select all in Celtx 2. Paste the entire text in. Now, what we need to do is the following.
What we need to do is get extra lines in between scenes to help Final Draft figure out where one scene ends and the other begins. What that will do is look for all our external scenes.
We also need to tell TextEdit that we want a line return before every external scene. Like so: Copy one line return character by click-dragging with your mouse from the beginning of the scene heading line to the end of the line above.
Alternatively you can move your cursor to the front of the scene heading line and then press the left arrow key while holding shift. What that does is it marks only the line return character without any text. Find and replace INT scenes Well done.
Now we have exactly what we want: An extra line between our scene breaks. Final Draft opens your script file and is should be correctly formatted. Limitations Although this process worked fine for me, there are a couple of limitations you should be aware of.
Final Draft tends to not recognize some scene elements correctly. If they are, Final Draft will format the character element as action. Also, Final Drat will take this as an action line instead of a character name. How about you? Are you using Celtx? Do you also have to handle Final Draft files? Have you found another conversion method?
