MultiColumn - Premium Feature

MultiColumn is used in document templates that require text to be lined up in columns side-by-side. You create your own template using this tool, too. Whether you are writing in the UK Stageplay template, Audio/Visual template, Virtual Reality template, or are looking to have a split-screen moment. Whatever your goal, MutliColumn can help you achieve it!

Set MutliColumn Formatting

  1. Select Customize > Format

The WriterDuet MultiColumn plugin provides capabilities for the use and manipulation of columns in scripts, across scripts, and in new built-in or custom templates.

Feature List

  • MultiColumn Mode: Format sections of your script into two columns for any number of pages. Use it to write in split-screen, multiple languages, or for simultaneous action.
  • Audio/Visual Template: Write documentaries, commercials, tutorials, and anything else that requires independent yet codependent audio and visual tracks.
  • Virtual Reality Template: Write Virtual Reality (360º) scripts with action happening in multiple directions at once.
  • New Formatting Options: Format column widths, assign line-types to columns or to auto-follow previous line-types, and manually adjust the placement of each line.

Do anything that two pens could do with WriterDuet MultiColumn.
