Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get Fade In Professional Screenwriting Software?

First download the free demo version and take it for a test drive. Then purchase the full version. You'll receive your personalized registration and download information by email. Download the full version, then enter your user name and registration key from the email by selecting Register from the Help menu.

Is the demo fully functional?

The demonstration version available from the Download page includes all of the features found in the full version (aside of collaboration), although it will pop up a registration reminder after 10 pages, and includes a watermark on printed scripts.

Why is the software still asking me to register?

Please make sure you've downloaded the full version of the software from your personalized download link (from the email you received at purchase time) and entered your user name and registration key under Help > Register. Please note that the demo version won't allow you to enter your registration information.

Are updates free?

You bet they are. Buy the current version and get all version 3.x updates for no charge.

What's new in the latest version?

You can find that out right here.

Can I install it on more than one computer?

Yes, you can. You will be supplied a personalized registration key at the time of purchase, which you can use to install the software on your own computer(s) running Windows, Mac, and Linux.

(Please note, however, that Mac App Store purchases are limited to Mac and do not include a registration key.)

For multiuser or site licensing, please contact support@fadeinpro.com.

What font should I use?

For screenplay documents, it is recommended to use a screenplay-specific Courier font. These can be found on the Download page under "Extras".

Does it work with Final Draft files?

Indeed it does. The software can import and export the latest Final Draft .fdx format with ease. Choose File > Import > Final Draft (.fdx). To save your screenplay as a Final Draft .fdx file, use File > Export. (For older versions of Final Draft, such as FD 7 and earlier, you'll need to export to RTF first, then import that into the application.)

Fade In Mobile

What is Fade In Mobile?

Fade In Mobile is a separate app for iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Android available for purchase ($4.99 USD; there's also a free version to try out called Fade In Mobile Free). While it doesn't provide the full range of features of Fade In Professional Screenwriting Software, Fade In Mobile does offer basic viewing and editing functionality for reading, writing, and reviewing on the go.

Where can I get it?

Fade In Mobile Free: Android or iPhone/iPad

Fade In Mobile (full version): Android or iPhone/iPad

What's the difference between Fade In Mobile and Fade In Mobile Free?

Fade In Mobile Free is essentially a trial or demo of the full, paid version of Fade In Mobile. A couple of features are absent in the free version such as editing imported screenplays and the capability to work on more than one screenplay at once. If you try Fade In Mobile Free, like how it works, and plan to use it with any real writing projects, you're going to want to upgrade to the full version of Fade In Mobile.

How do I sync to Fade In Mobile?

First you'll need a free Dropbox account. Then you'll need to enter your Dropbox account information (email and password) into Fade In Mobile for a one-time authorization.

Note that your .fadein files are stored in a "Fade In" subfolder of your Dropbox account.
