Free and Open Source Software for Screenwriters
Hey guys. Our old thread was removed from the forum... Maybe someone knows why?

Never mind. Let's start a new one!:)


I create a new screenwriting software named KIT Scenarist. My project is free and open source and currently it in an active development phase.

The application contains 4 main modules:

Research - for collecting all materials about project;
Cards - corkboard for outlining;
Script - screenplay editor;
Statistics - production reports and plots.

I want to share this project with you and I hope that app will be useful for all screenwriters. Project's website -

If the project is interesting for you and you decide to try it, I'll be glad to hear your opinion about it. Maybe you have suggestions for improvement, or just want to express your opinion, then happy to hear you.

Thank you!


We finally did automatic corrections for text in real-time! Less than three years, by the way! :)

P.S. I'm talking about automatic text correction for dialogues and other blocks on the page breaks while writing the text.
P.P.S. Respect to all developers of other scriptwriting software, who also developed this functionality. It was a real challenge!

I, too, wonder why. I thought you were very responsive to suggestions and
I enjoyed keeping up with your progress.

As is all too usual, Quality feels the need to put people down. I'm not
personally interested in another screenwriting software but I admire you for
working hard on this.

Welcome back!

Rude. Here's someone that didn't like what available and made his own. Then he makes it available for FREE on all platforms. When it comes to free screenwriting software, there's not a lot of good out there. Celtx get's the most attention, but it's so bloated and now it's online only. Trelby was promising but development has stopped years ago. Fountain can work, but it's too basic. So he realized there was a need, and he filled it. I think that KIT is the best free screenwriting software out there right now.

I especially love the story development tools and still use them even if I'm writing a script in something paid like Fade In.

@dimkanovikov: Don't let others get you down. Your software rocks!

Come on, guys! Everybody has right to have own opinion. I don't aspire to universal love but simply do my job in pleasure. More apps - more opportunities to create a better stories!;)

I noticed you've been gaining a little bit of traction with writers out there, so well done!

sfoster 12-21-2017 06:53 AM

I looked through the deleted threads and it's not anywhere :huh:
You have a new account now too? did you get any PM or email to your old account

dimkanovikov 12-21-2017 07:44 AM

Thanks, Sweetie!:)

sfoster, no. It's an old account. When I login in next time I just don't find my theme. Looks like the theme was deleted from forum's database because my comments counter was zeroed out too...

Sorry that it happened to you, it wasn't on purpose and I'm glad you created a new thread with a good attitude about it. Welcome back I suppose :lol:

Sometimes old promotion is removed, this one which was current was removed by mistake, so please carry on thanks!

dimkanovikov 12-21-2017 11:37 PM

Thanks for the information, indietalk!

El Director 12-22-2017 09:47 AM

Just installed your latest version on my Fedora laptop. Last one I installed was six months ago. I really like the new setup wizard you've implemented. Makes it much easier for us Americans to switch things over. Keep up the great work friend!

dimkanovikov 12-23-2017 08:21 AM

El Director, thanks, man.
