Script tools


The script tools change how you interact with the Script Editor, which are accessible from the top left of your editor.

Correction tool

This tool lets you quickly click on words in your script and make edits to the transcript; it will correct the word but will not affect your script's underlying video and audio. Once you click on a word and make your correction, you will return to the normal editing mode.


Writing tool

This tool lets you write your script from scratch using Overdub audio. The writing tool will generate placeholder text if you still need to assign an Overdub voice to your speaker label.


Script tools affect your keyboard shortcuts

When the correction or writing tool is enable:

  • You can start and stop playback by pressing Command + S (Mac) or Control + S (Windows).
  • Single letter keyboard shortcuts will not be available
