In today’s collaborative workspace, scriptwriters face a number of challenges managing documents in the process from story development through production. Desktop scriptwriting applications make collaboration, sharing and versioning a challenge for writers, producers, directors, and anyone who is involved in the project. We have heard from many writers (and other professionals) about their process and understand that these limitations cause points of pain. Final Draft version 9 will alleviate these issues by providing new tools through its Connect service that will specifically address collaboration, sharing, storing and versioning.
- Store (and see) every edit within a given script on the server.
- Share your scripts with viewing and/or editing capability.
- Collaborate effectively with other writers and anyone who may be involved in your project from start to finish.
- Have your script securely available anytime, anywhere.
- Track notes and edits easily.

Final Draft, Inc. was founded in 1991 to develop a scriptwriting program that allows the writer to concentrate on the creative process and not on Hollywood's stringent formatting rules. Since then, Final Draft software has become the entertainment professional's choice and the world's number-one selling scriptwriting program for film, television, theatre, and new media. Final Draft, Inc. also publishes Script magazine, a bi-monthly publication focused on the craft and business of writing for film, television, and new media and Final Draft AV, the only scriptwriting application tailored to the needs of writers using the two-column format.
