Hi Team, When you are finished formatting a script, how do you get it reviewed for errors before submitting it to a whomever or whatever entity you intend to, to ensure you did not overlook anything?

I'm sure FD has a formatting error option, although i prefer the old school method myself
I use FD but I have it edited while I'm working on the script by a friend. We both have FD on iPad so I can send it to him to edit and he sends it back.
Use an editor- If this is your first time especially- you will learn a lot.
I print out a hardcopy and go line by line. Sometimes you just catch things you miss on the screen.
depends what sort of errors you are looking for. For grammar, spelling etc - I use a proof reading service. For layout etc I use this - a great tool. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00JLTHHVG/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=...
I use WritersDuet to complete the first draft. It automatically formats the screenplay for you. I then copy it over to Final Draft to do the spell checking. Finally I print out a hard copy and mark it up. Then I give it to my readers and let them have at it!!!
