WriterDuet FAQ

DO YOU SUPPORT MOBILE DEVICES?
Yes! You can find the mobile app in your respective app store or access WD via mobile browser at writerduet.com.

IS WEB-BASED SCREENWRITING VIABLE FOR PROFESSIONAL SCREENWRITERS?
Absolutely… with WriterDuet. Other screenwriting websites gave web apps a bad name, falling far below the standard serious writers require. WriterDuet changes that, with a browser-based experience that surpasses traditional (i.e. old) desktop software. If you love the interface but are desperate for the traditional, totally offline, file-based desktop software experience, check out WriterSolo under Help > Buy WriterDuet Plugins.

WHAT BROWSER DO YOU RECOMMEND?
Many browsers are supported by WriterDuet, but Chrome is by far the best in terms of speed and features it supports.

ARE PAGE COUNTS THE SAME ON ALL DEVICES AND IN PDF/PRINT?
100%. We hate inconsistency.

DO YOU SUPPORT TV FORMATS AND STAGEPLAYS?
Yes! You can change the script template under Format > Script Template, and customize it further under Customize > Format.

ARE SCRIPTS PRIVATE?
WriterDuet uses SSL security, and generates random access codes to share with collaborators you choose. Scripts are not shared except through your requests & guest codes.

CAN I GET MY SCRIPT OUT?
All users can export scripts in many formats under File > Export. You can also import those (even PDF and Word docs).

DOES WRITERDUET OWN MY WRITING?
Definitely not. You retain your rights, and simply grant WriterDuet permission to share and perform (on ReadThrough) scripts as you request. We don’t have any ownership of your work, and only share your scripts in ways you request.

HOW ARE FILES SAVED?
We auto-save all changes on our servers, and you can backup copies to Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud and your computer.

DOES WRITERDUET WORK OFFLINE?
Yes! With WriterDuet Pro, you can seamlessly write with or without an Internet connection. When you’re online, your script will automatically sync.

CAN I GET REVISIONS WITH *s?
Absolutely! View changes via the calendar icon or revision list, then print or download a PDF.

ARE THE PRO & FREE VERSIONS COMPATIBLE?
Totally. Pro writers will have access to more features within a script they’re collaborating on versus a Free user, but Pro and Free users can seamlessly collaborate. Only Pro users can send invites, but anyone can join a script invitation link.
