The Script Editor
The script editor consists of two parts, the scene navigator on the left and the editor window.
The Scene Navigator lists the scenes from your script based on the scene headings.
The toolbar at the top of the Scene Navigator lets users move scenes, copy entire scenes to the Scratchpad, and delete scenes.
To move a scene up in the list, select a scene and press the up arrow. To move a scene down the list, select a scene and select the down arrow.
Move a scene to the Scratchpad by selecting a scene and then selecting the Scratchpad button at the top of the Scene Navigator. A confirmation dialog will appear to confirm moving the scene to the Scratchpad. To view the scene in the Scratchpad, select the Scratchpad icon below the Scene Navigator.
Double-click any scene in the Navigator to go to that scene in the editor window.
Where you write your script.
View #Other at the bottom of this page for a list of shortcuts/hotkeys for the Celtx Script Editor.
We like to think of this as Character 101. The Character tab is used to provide background information for your characters to aid youin the writing process. Also when collaborating with others, other users will be able to read your character profiles to get a better sense of how these characters react and behave under different circumstances.
The Character list on the left of your display is generated by Celtx, based on Characters that have dialog in the script. You can add more Characters to this list using the (+) button at the top of the Character list. Once you add a character to this list, it is then also added to the character autocomplete list which appears when adding Characters to your script.
At this time you can only delete Characters from this list that do not have dialog in your script. If the character has dialog, it will appear in the Character list.
This is to complement the Character Details tab allowing users to better describe details about a particular scene that may fall outside the scope of the Sceneheader or Action description. By filling in these extra details, the writer can give the reader a better sense of the scene, including the goals and mood of a given scene.
Using Scene Details is a pretty simple process. When the user selects the Scene Details tab, a list of scenes is presented on the left. Select a scene and the sceneheader will be presented at the top of the details form. The user can then fill in the particular details for each scene. This information is saved when the user switches to another scene, or to another tab in hte application.
The Schedule tab provides the user with basic calendaring functions. User can create calendars on a per project basis, then filter the calendar view for a particular project, or view all of them to get a sense of upcoming dates and deadlines.
Celtx Central allows users to flesh out their Celtx profile, change their password, and delete any projects they have stored on the Celtx server. Login into Celtx Central with your Celtx username and password.
Projects that are uploaded to the Celtx server as public projects are presented on Project Central.
Celtx for A/V
While Celtx does not have an Audio/Visual feature (yet), it is possible to adapt the existing software to A/V uses such as Podcasts, for which I have found Celtx invaluable for collaborating with a co-producer in every aspect of pre-production. Try using "Heading" for the time/item. For instance:
00:01 Fade In Music
Leaving five (5) spaces between the time and the item name means that using "Dialogue" on the line below aligns perfectly with the item name in the line above.
