    Hello, Compass Classroom! It looks like Celtx (re: Lesson 2) no longer offers a free desktop version. Instead, I can only find a free 7-day trial. I just want to double-check that we’re not missing where to find the free desktop version referenced in the lesson. (The free version may just not be available anymore. If that’s the case, do you have another resource you would recommend for learning the formal way of formatting scripts?) Thank you!

    Yes, it looks like Celtx has finally stopped their free version. Here’s a list of a bunch of other options, with Drama Queen looking pretty good as a downloadable version (vs. an app): https://www.scriptreaderpro.com/free-screenwriting-software/

    BTW – can you remind me where I mention that in the actual curriculum? I can update it. If you end up using a few versions of the software, let me know what you like best.

      Thanks for providing some alternatives, Thomas! Celtx is referenced in Step 6 of Lesson 2 – A Magical Story. (When the screen is open to this lesson, it’s labeled as Lesson 3, Step 6 at the top, although this lesson is listed as Lesson 2 on the sidebar. I think this may be because the system considers the introduction as the first lesson.)
