Screenwriting Software Montage 1.2.2 Released

Minneapolis, MN – May 2, 2007 -Mariner Software, developers and publishers of professional and personal software for the writing and creativity markets, today released Montage 1.2.2, the only screenwriting software developed exclusively for Mac OS X. A partial list of this mostly-bug fix release of Montage 1.2.2 includes:

• Element (character, location, camera location, time of day) suggestion lists now popup after a single character (previously required you to type 2 or more characters).
• Fixed a problem that prevented Annotations from working.
• Fixed a problem where applying styles (Format, Bold, Italic) would fail in Scenes view, and would not be saved or printed although style changes appeared to be applied in Script View.
• Text boxes are now centered in Scenes View.
• Fixed a number of problems related to inserting scenes in Script View.
• Fixed a number of typing problems that would occur for users running Mac OS X version 10.3.9.
• Plus many more bug fixes.

Montage provides screenwriters with a live script outline, a view of scenes, characters, locations, tasks, research, and more. Several pre- formatted templates, including film, television, and theater, automatically format the user’s script to industry standards. Montage Smart Views allow writers to visually filter the script to the desired content, based on criteria. When the script is completed, Montage even includes the ability to create, submit, and track query letters, a script synopsis, and script submissions to hundreds of included industry contacts.

Montage also imports Final Draft, text, and RTF documents.

This is a free update for all Version 1 customers. The shipping version of Montage is offered in English and sells for $139.95 USD. Support for other language versions is expected in the near future. Montage requires Mac OS 10.3.9 or above and is fully accessible and Universal Binary.
