Miss The Old Desktop Version

I recently got a Mac (regretfully but that’s another story) and because I don’t like the other desktop screenwriting software out there I’ve been using Celtx Cloud screenwriting - which is great but I still like the old desktop version better. I am using Celtx screenwriting not because it’s free, but out of preference. The thing is, there’s nothing worse than being in the flow of creating when the internet goes out. (I keep telling people we need to get over this complete dependency upon the internet before we have complete catastrophe on our hands, but that’s another story too). I just downloaded this app but it doesn’t seem to be completely desktop based ????? Can’t tell because my internet is back up. I just wanted to give this feedback, because I really love everything that Celtx has to offer. Cloud-based programs are great, but if would be even greater if we had desktop versions as backup for when the internet is unavailable.

The Dude is taken

Ok, bare bones - spell dialogue correctly

You can tell the creators don’t really know what they are making when they spell dialogue, dialog, the computer term not the spoken word and screenplay spelling, dialogue. Are you making a computer program or a screenwriting software.

This app doesn’t seem completely finished. So many blatant bugs. The format always puts 1 space after periods or shifts paragraphs over and looks weird. Not intuitive switching with TAB to the next format. The three most used should be character, dialogue and action. On iphone and ipad I can switch scenes around by dragging, but on mac version you can’t. Always opens at 100% which is tiny, doesn’t remember 150% is what I last used. Keeps the icloud open screen open even after I open a script. the login button keeps saying loging and doesn’t switch to logged in or say my user name. They shouldn’t charge this much for this app and then have it be crappy.


As Advertised

I see a lot of reviewers base their experience on ultimately not understanding the purpose behind this app, which are unwarranted. You get what you pay for, and for the price, with it’s essential features, it's a godsend compared to other screenwriting apps. However, the functionality is plagued with a bug other reviewers are commenting about with respect to app crashes. About an hour after purchasing, the app crashed and upon reopening, I couldn’t even delete a single letter without the app crashing again. A note to Celtx, Inc: please fix this. The updated design, essential screenwriting functions, and price are perfect, but this bug is quickly making me reconsider the purchase.

If a fix can’t come soon enough, I recommend their cloud/online platform. Otherwise, hold tight until an update is released.

December 2017 UPDATE:
Celtx Support has been outstanding in their response time - special shoutout to Marcel for being helpful with quick, temporary fixes for the app crashes while waiting for a full app update. As for the update, no reoccuring issues yet. ALL apps are susceptible to bugs from time-to-time, but so far this latest update has been fantastic. Thanks Celtx!
