I cannot write an important story because this app keeps crashing every time I type a single letter. After crashing and reopening, the project saves the script in a William S. Burroughs "cut-up" method, and phrases missing all together. I don't have a lot of money as it is (my life choice of wanting to be a screenwriter), and so my heart and soul aches so much knowing I can't properly compose my work. I had to update to the Big Sur OS and my old illegally downloaded Celtx from 2010 became obsolete, hence making the leap into this super expenisve crummy software. How does one even justify spending that much money on something that doesn't actually exist. Well, I suppose because the older version has treated me so kindly over the years and I'm naive enough to think people (and the people behind art tools such as Celtx) create to help and support others, just as I strive for with my own work. I guess I'll be bad and wander the cyber streets to find an old celtx again that is compatibe with this newer OS? Yes perhaps I'll catch the clap, but that burn will be worth it for the passion of writing.
Given that Final Draft, a dubious scriptwriting software is not free, and that Microsoft Word may be free but lacks the comprehensive integration a scriptwriting software has, Celtx is a quick solution to production processes. Celtx for Windows and Mac do not need to be downloaded. Rather than requiring a process to install Celtx, the software functions with a login system.

I am very happy using Fade-In as a second attempt at using screenwriting software. My first attempt was to use Celtx which was a nightmare with problems too varied to explain here. I ruined my laptop a couple months ago and had Fade in on it along with a script draft. I bought another laptop (an awful expense) and contacted Fade In support. I was given instant support by their downloading the program to include updates having only to use my code key. I paid for it once and get free updates. One time payment only. Using it is quite simple and takes very little time getting familiar with the keys for Scene Heading, Action, Character, Transition etc. I have printed four pages as a test script to see the results to ensure the results are correctly formatted and I was very happy to see the format was spot-on for all formatted processes, for which my test script had all that would be required under normal writing circumstances. If your budget will allow, I recommend Fade In. It is relatively short money compared to Final Draft et al and I think quite competitive. Cheers
I've recently migrated to a new iMac and at first everything seems fine then suddenly my mail programme Postbox has started asking for the font Osaka on restart of the OS (doesn't when I close and reopen the app without shutting the mac down). Postbox has recently got rid of the need to use the Osaka font precisely to enable it to work in High Sierra according to their support people. If I click to download the font the app continues but strangely the font doesn't remain downloaded but after a few seconds 'greys out' in Font Book. The same is true of other greyed out fonts like Yuanti SC - I can download but after a few seconds they unload. Oddly, Postbox doesn't ask for the font on my old mac also running High Sierra. I don't think it's actually Postbox on it's own that's doing this but maybe some linked app our system resource. I've run Etrecheck and the only error reported are:
In fact both the fonts I mentioned are not on the list of installed fonts on High Sierra but are listed as available for download - except that the download doesn't seem to 'stick'. I've got a copy of Osaka on disk so have installed that and managed to get Yuanti to stay 'active' for long enough to track it's location down to the Library/assets/com_apple_MobileAsset_font4 folder so i could install as a user font. So far Postbox is starting without the warning - though weird it is asking for it when the need for it has been removed from the latest HS compatible version.
