Hi there,


I am considering which one to buy. I really want a program that allows me to count how many times a particular word is used in a script and also report a list of most frequently used words.

Do either of these programs do this??

Thanks

Andy

I've never seen that feature in either program, then again I've never looked for it.

You reminded me of the MS Word utilities for writers (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11653) written by Roger Carlson, one of which is a word frequency counter. In theory you could copy/paste text from your screenwriting program and into a Word doc, and do the biz there.

I don't think my current version of Final Draft does this, but my version is also probably a good five or six years old.

I'm sure there have been updates.
