Apr. 8th, 2008 @ 02:56 pm Anyone using the Celtx software?
If so, are you using the Index Card feature? What can you do with the index cards? And how can they help you organize your ideas and write your script?

All that the online Celtx Wiki says is that they're a tool for helping you write, but it doesn't explain how (and I have a dialup connection to my ISP, so watching the online help videos is hideously slow).

Also, don't know if this makes any difference or not, but I've decided to do a stageplay this year...

Index cards are used as a tool for arranging your scenes. If they work like they do on other software, they should start with the heading.

example: INT - WRIGLEY FIELD - DAY

Description, blah, blah, blah.

If in the future you think certain scenes work better in another order it's easier to organize via cards.

Thanks; I still haven't decided whether I should use them, or not. But knowing what they are for certainly helps ;-)

Celtx looks really cool, but unfortunately I'm writing a graphic novel script and it wouldn't really help... My friend is using it, though, and she loves it. I don't think she's ever used the index cards and I don't think she's had time to--seeing as she was on Page 91 this morning. 91!!! *dies*

I'm sorry, but I think I hate people like that, a little bit (she says, as she toddles off to tackle Page 1).
