When you create a script with Final Draft, a screenwriting application, your file saves in the Final Draft format. Anyone who has Final Draft on computer can read your Final Draft script. If you want to show your script to someone who doesn't have Final Draft, you can save a copy of it in Adobe's PDF. The free Adobe Reader opens a PDF file so it looks the same no matter what computer it opens on.

Step 1

Click "File" from the "Final Draft" menu. Click "Print." The "Print Script" dialog box opens.

Step 2

Click "Print to PDF." The "Save As" dialog box appears.

Step 3

Type a name for the PDF of the script, and click a folder where you want to save the PDF file.

Step 4

Click "OK" to save the script as a PDF file.
