Plain Text

You write your screenplays in plain text marked up to indicate structure. Nellie formats your screenplays into PDFs or EPUBs. Nellie supports Western European languages only.

Easy To Use

You do only the work you have to do: you provide the content. Nellie does the formatting for you. You do not need to know how to format screenplays.

Clean PDFs

Nellie’s custom formatter creates PDFs with no extraneous metadata that can be used to identify you.


Nellie understands a modified subset of the Fountain markup language. Nellie can automatically insert scene numbers into scene headings, place watermarks on pages, and insert the word count and today’s date into title pages. Nellie produces PDF and EPUB output. Nellie embeds the Courier Prime or Courier Prime Sans typeface into PDFs.
