Is there a way to import a script from Celtx into Final Draft? Going to switch and it seems as though my script is "locked" into Celtx's format. I'm hoping this is possible and that there isn't a huge typing project in my future. Thanks.


Final Draft will open a text file exported from Celtx and give you the option of converting it to standard formatting for a screenplay.

Quite detailed instructions are given in the Final Draft support forum

  • Thanks so much! This will make my transition to Final Draft easier. Appreciate it.

I created a free web tool that converts between the Celtx and Final Draft without going to text (which can introduce formatting errors). It does other screenplay formats as well. www.ScreenplayConverter.com
