For a limited time, all features of Scrite are free to use for registered users. Eventually, there will be a paid version as we move out of beta and launch the 1.0 update.

Our goal is to make writing professionally formatted screenplays accessible to as many writers as possible and the paid version will be in line with this goal. We’ll publish information about this launch ahead of time and beta users will be able to avail a special discount.

Note: This is a beta release. A software is released for public beta primarily to seek feedback from the public. Scrite has undergone reasonably extensive testing internally in alpha stage, but it could still have known or unknown bugs. Please read more about what a beta release means here ( If you wish to have a more stable and complete version, we recommend you to wait until we have a 1.0 release. But if you are one of the early adopters who wants to check out Scrite, please feel free to download and please provide feedback.


  • NOTE: We provide AppImage bundles of Scrite app for 64-bit Linux only!. This means that app will work only on those 64-bit Linux distributions that support AppImage, which is most distributions including Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Fedora, RedHat, openSuSe and more. Also, your Linux OS has to be a 64-bit version.

  • Assign executable permissions to the downloaded file by right clicking on the file, selecting Permissions and then checking the “Is executable” checkbox.
  • Alternatively, you can go to command prompt and assign executable permissions using the chmod command.
