How to Use Quick Add to Add a Character in SoCreate Screenwriting Software

Use SoCreate’s Quick Add feature to rapidly add new Characters or @mention existing Characters in your script.

To use Quick Add to add a new Character or @mention an existing Character:

  1. Type the @ symbol to reveal the Quick Add feature. From here, click or tab down to the Character icon from the sidebar.

  2. Add your new Character’s details such as name, Character type, and age.

  3. Use the auto-selected image or choose a new one by clicking the edit symbol next to the Character image.

  4. Sort through the image library by using the navigation along the top to see images already used in your story, or to see Real or Doodle images only.

  5. Use the search bar to type in descriptive features about your Character to further narrow the image results.

  6. Click Use Image to finalize the change. Then click Add Character.

The new Character will appear in your Story Toolbar for future use and will appear highlighted in the Dialogue or Action Stream Item where they were first mentioned.
