How to Tag a Character in Your Story in SoCreate Screenwriting Software

Writers should tag characters each time they’re mentioned in a SoCreate story. Later, this will help you determine every time a character appears in your screenplay.

Meanwhile, readers can hover over a tagged character to reveal more details about them.

To tag a character in SoCreate Screenwriting Software:

  1. Navigate to the character or action stream item you wish to write within.

  2. Type the “@” symbol, and a dropdown of available characters will appear.

  3. Continue doing this for every character mentioned.

  4. You can also create new tagged characters by using the “@” symbol within a dialogue or action stream item. Simply type @ and then the character’s name, and a new character will automatically be added to your character bank in your story toolbar.

Tagged characters will appear in blue text.
