Fountain Mode is a scriptwriting (both screenplays and stageplays) program for GNU Emacs version 24.4 or later. The Fountain markup format is a plain-text format designed to be easily readable and editable, portable and future-proof, and to look as much like a script as possible.
This is the Fountain Mode Manual updated for version 3.5.
