RoughDraft is a freeware word processor. Although suitable for general use, it has features specifically designed for creative writing: novels, short stories, articles, plays and screenplays. It's designed to be as practical as possible, offering all the features you need, but without being complicated or awkward to use. Features: *Special modes for plays and screenplays which make formatting easy. *A side panel that makes common operations quicker and more convenient. *Instant Backup of all open files to the device of your choice - a very convenient way to make sure you don't lose your work. *Automatic creation of cover pages for manuscript submissions with word and PaGE counts. *Automatic insertion of user-defined words - for character names or commonly used words. *Four extra Clipboards for inserting longer phrases or paragraphs. *A comprehensive but simple printing system, including a Print Preview that shows exactly how your work will look on the page. *Creation of HTML files of your work for publishing on the web. *Importing of files in Word 6.0, Word 97 and HTML formats. *Up to 100 files open at the same time. *Spellchecking. British and American English dictionaries are included. Dictionaries for many other languages can be downloaded. *Live spellchecking that underlines misspelled words in red as you type. *A custom spellchecking dictionary so you can add your own words. *A dictionary and thesaurus facility (provided by Anthony Lewis' WordWeb program, which has to be installed separately - it's not required to run RoughDraft, but strongly recommended). *Comprehensive text and paragraph formatting options. *Saving of files in the popular Rich Text Format (RTF), meaning they can be opened in just about any other word processor. *Etc
