thepanaman asked: I just bought Celtx Desktop! I have been supporting Celtx throughout all of my film studies. The iPad apps are solid, and this desktop app is almost to its potential.

I love the direction you have been taking, and I hope to see an update which lets me...

My dad feels that with respect to the second script, it should be longer because he feels that's not long enough to properly develop my characters; plus when I told him about my second script, he said it wasn't unique enough for him to be interested enough in reading it. How long should a short film be and how do I know...

sarcasticallyironic asked: I have been using Celtx for almost a year now, and I absolutely love it. It is simply the best tool for writing my scripts, and the ability to write from all of my devices and keep them perfectly synced is just amazing. That said, when I got to the Celtx site on my iPad, it kind of sucks. Pages don't load fully, photos from Celtx Scout take up to much of the page, and overall it just...

ellisanthonyandysuttonjr asked: How long should a short film be? I had written two so far and my dad tells me that they seem too short at their length of approximately nine pages each. I know that the standard is one page per minute of screen time. But I and my dad seem concerned about whether the page length will translate to the right length.
Anonymous asked: Hi everyone at Celtx, and thanks for all the good work you do. Now - why are my page numbers in the working script (which I selected with "Pagination") different to the page numbers in TypeSet/PDF? It's driving me kinda nuts because… because… well, you know how screenwriters are about their page numbers!
