Highland 1.9

Highland 1.9

Highland is the award-winning screenplay editor that lets you focus on the words, not margins. Designed by screenwriter John August and his team, Highland is the better way to write movies and television.

  • You write. Highland formats.
  • Unlike old-fashioned editors, you don't need to tell Highland which element is a character and which is dialogue. It just knows.
  • So you can spend your time finding the perfect word, not the right menu command.
  • When you want to see the layout, quickly toggle between your text and your screenplay preview with ⌘-E. Your hands never need to leave the keyboard.
  • With one click, Highland turns your words into a perfectly-formatted screenplay, ready to print or export as an FDX or PDF.

Highland is built by screenwriters, for screenwriters. You’ll love working in an editor designed for writing.
  • Dark Mode. Late night inspiration without the eye-strain.
  • Full screen mode. The ultimate distraction-free screenwriting experience.
  • In-line notes and synopses. Keep your notes right where you need them.
  • Smart sections. Organize your script by acts and sequences, not scene headers.
  • Syntax highlighting. Highland denotes sections, synopses, notes, and formatting beautifully.
  • Smart pagination. Highland knows how to break pages just right, keeping sentences together.
  • Boneyard. Keep those scraps and partial scenes handy for reference.
  • Easy uppercase. Shift-return transforms a line to uppercase—perfect for and scene headings and character slugs.
  • Fountain cheat sheet. Forget how to center something? The answer is a glance away.

Highland is built for today, and the future.
  • Speed. Highland is lean and mean. From scrolling to previews, Highland is blisteringly fast. Because it's Mac-only, we optimize it using the latest Apple technologies.
  • Great typography. Highland features Courier Prime and Highland Sans for exceptional typography right out of the box. Screenwriters shouldn't have to look at ugly fonts.
  • Standards-leading. Created by the same team that helped forge the Fountain standard, Highland speaks Fountain fluently. We're often the first to incorporate new specs, such as lyrics and forced character names.
  • Compatible. Highland is perfect for moving files between Fountain, Final Draft, and PDF formats.
  • Built for retina. Highland’s simplicity is even sharper on retina displays.
  • Best-in-class PDF melting. Screenplay PDFs are no longer frozen in carbonate. This was Highland's breakout feature, and remains unequaled.
  • Active development. Highland receives regular updates, sometimes twice a month, incorporating user-requested features almost every build.
  • Created by working screenwriters. We use Highland every day, which is why we keep refining it.
