Late last night we added two new features to the Celtx Cloud.
1. Edge Script Editor Notes – we added support for embedded coloured Notes in the Edge editor (you’ll see a new icon in the toolbar for adding a new Note). Notes sync across all platforms – Desktop, Cloud and Mobile – so for example, Notes added to a script from Celtx Script for iOS and Android or Script for Mac OSX will show up in your Edge editor and vice versa.
2. Ask Celtx – accessed from the Tiles Page (the one you see after logging in), Ask Celtx is a Q&A style forum. You can use Ask Celtx for support or to canvass the Celtx Community for information and advice or to answer questions from other users. Ask Celtx is public, meaning anyone can review questions and answers, but you need a Celtx Account to ask a question (no need to have an active subscription, just an account). Give it a whirl when you can. [The plan is for Ask Celtx to replace the Celtx Forums as the latter has become almost unusable due to the sPaM bots wreaking havoc.]
Hope this is good! Mark, CEO for Team Celtx.

Anonymous asked: I'm working on a musical and I just purchased and installed Celtx. I'm liking what I see thus far. The question I have is how do I best create a timeline? I've been looking around for a way to do basic things like this, and I'm just not seeing it. Got a link and/or some info for a Celtx newb? THANKS!
Hmm. This depends on what kind of timeline you mean, but it sounds like you’ve got some creative repurposing ahead of you!
Can you please post your question to ask.celtx.com? I’d love to hear what the community suggests.
Anonymous asked: I have and use Celtx Plus and try to save on my Workspace (basic), and it saves... but only one paragraph, i.e. about 200 words, of my more than 100 pages script... is there anything I did non understand?
Can you please e-mail me (Ryan) at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is troubling and the more information I have about your particular workflow, the better I’ll be able to help.
Anonymous asked: I'm using Celtz A/V, but when I put it in PDF format, it leaves a usually leaves a large blank area at the bottom of the page, so I'm wasting a lot of paper when I print it off. Is there any way to get Celtx to continue all the way to the bottom of the page and continue on the next?
After you run it through Typeset, click the Save PDF button rather than print it from the Typeset return.
Anonymous asked: Why do I need to be connected to the internet in order to make PDF? I have some copyright doubts about it... I don't know where and why do my scipt travel to before I can watch it well formatted and it makes me nervous.
Your script is not retained on the server. It goes through Typeset, our formatting engine, and is returned adhering to industry conventions for you to click the Save PDF button.
iwanttobelikearollingstone asked: I have Celtx basic, but is there any way I can still export the script to a PDF?
To export a script as a PDF without upgrading your account to Edge, you’ll need to open the script with the desktop software by clicking File > Open from Celtx.
Then just click Typeset/PDF and Save PDF.
Anonymous asked: Celtx Manual, Where thanks, from Mexico
We do not currently have a manual. If you log into your cloud account at celtx.com and click the Guides tile, you can have a look at the resources available for you, many of which are free.
joestanton asked: Is there a way to download a celtx file from the browser tool?
Hi Joe! If you have a script inside your cloud account that you want to download, all you need to do is first make sure you have the latest version 2.9.7 of the desktop software.
(This can be grabbed from the Desktop tile in your cloud account, if you need to update.)
Once it’s installed, launch the software and click Open from Celtx. Enter your cloud account credentials and you will be able to open the script and save it to your local hard drive.
Anonymous asked: Hi, Does Celtx Pro support retina resolution?
If you mean Celtx Plus, the pro version of our downloadable desktop software, no, it does not.
Celtx Script for OS X, the dedicated writing app from the Mac App Store however, does.
Anonymous asked: Does the Android app support landscape mode, and is there an undo/redo function?
Yes, landscape mode is supported as long as your device is running Android 3.0 or higher.
Unfortunately, no, there is not yet undo/redo functionality built in.
Anonymous asked: How do I know how many pages I have in my script?
To do this, you just need to run your script through TypeSet, our formatting engine.
There are two places to run your script through TypeSet to print your script to industry conventions. The desktop software is one of them. If your script is currently in your cloud account, launch the latest version 2.9.7 of the desktop software, click Open from Celtx, and then click the TypeSet/PDF sub-tab below the script.
The second place to find TypeSet allows you to stay in your cloud account. If your cloud account is upgraded to Celtx Edge, then TypeSet is an icon found natively in the script editing toolbar.

Anonymous asked: If I've downloaded the celtx scriptwriting software can my script be read publicly? I want my script to be only available on my computer and not shown to other celtx users. Please clarify. Thanks
No, your script is private. If you save your script to your personal cloud account, it is only visible to other collaborators you explicitly add as Writers or Readers.
