First Draft is designed for writers who struggle with slow typing speeds and/or writer’s block. The software generates an article based on a product name and a couple of other related keywords which writers can modify to their heart’s content. All spelling, grammar, and punctuation is an automated process ultimately enabling writers to focus on communication rather than mechanics.

It’s a terrific option for writers, bloggers, and content providers who are required to provide reading material within a short amount of time.

People, can we stop it with the hate mail? Evidently, folks are coming here to GOTD in hopes of accessing the patch that I released almost TWO MONTHS ago, and then sending me some rather insulting e-mail when they find out it's not available.

Fortunately, the issue above was resolved for the people who followed GOTD's rules and installed First Draft on Sept. 4. I do not support GOTD users who somehow were able to install the software after that date. So if you found this page in Google and hoped that the patch would work for a recent installation, it's not going to happen no matter what you send through the mail.

I too am getting the message that the trial period has expired. I tried to download your patch file above, but when I click on it, it takes me to a page where I a told
"Sorry!!
That information is not available on this website (yet or ever). Use the search form up top to search for something else."

Any other suggestions?
Thanks,
Mike

I thought this was something that I would use but never found where to enter the code and so now it says the trial period has ended and I cannot use without buying.

A novel idea for an app, but I won't use it because it forces me to run it as Administrator, so I uninstalled it.

Moreover, it didn't uninstall cleanly: the uninstaller left its file associations (First Draft Article and Template) in the registry and also left files under Program Files.

No offence to the creator of this programme, but....

Having used the programme and read the output, including the two examples above, it is clear that what comes out is almost "random words in a grammatical structure".

Perhaps the Mark II version will be better...

Thank you for your feedback, Tranmontane. You are somewhat correct. The software puts together “random words in a grammatical structure” to create a first draft.

Installed on my Win10 system no problem. Registered after a couple tries. Tried a few title and topic ideas to see what it would generate and it does create good thought starters and transitional points based on what you have entered. Not "quality content" as previously observed. It does, however have what I think are basic shortcomings because key things are missing:

1) No undo button. Really??!?!?!?! So to learn to use this program well you have to constantly start from scratch or quit, then go back to a saved version and tweak that each time?

2) Readily switch between templates for what you want to generate

But this is why these programs are put out for us to try so we can provide feedback. Thanks Nicole Miller and GOTD. I don't have anything like this!

After reading the First Draft examples provided by other commenters, I'd sum this product up in two words: FLUFF GENERATOR

As a copywriter, product reviewer and columnist for many many years, I can't resist putting my 2-cents in, although as I recall, getting a submission to actually appear this late in the 24-hour window was iffy at best.

As noted in several insightful posts above, this software simply produces word strings that seem to say a lot without saying bupkiss. It's a Turing Test fail. I'd never offer such output to a client, nor would I dare use it as website filler or in a blog even with wholesale edits.

Writers block is genuine, but this software seems to spew formulaic nonsense that would steer a good writer in the wrong direction. It's akin to giving a thesaurus to a 4th grader or a bundle of 1000 fonts to a web designer newbie. More importantly, if English is your second language, this will not teach you word nuance, colloquial terminology or provide the creative hooks and tweaks that captivate target audience. It might help eliminate some of the classic language gaffes GAOTD reviewers catch in foreign vendor software, but I predict your sales effort will bomb worse than a stand-up comic with bad timing if you rely heavily on this.

There's a reason quality advertising copywriters can command pretty decent money PER WORD. It takes talent to put words together in a way that captures eyeballs and holds someone's attention.

A shout out to any of my old GAOTD comrades. Got any appleseeds? (/old inside joke)

It sounds a bit like those Create your own news story about ____" that appear occasionally in MAD Magazine, in which you fill in each blank in the story by choosing one word from a list. Am I wrong, or is this something that could be of some use to a serious writer?

THUMB's UP for First Draft as a Blogger's New Best Friend.
First Draft will generate a comprehensible article based upon a subject defined by the writer's keywords. Amazing results...but far from perfect!

First Draft produces a very good 'first draft' for a short blog article. The blog writer must 'clean up', edit, and tailor First Draft's article in order to make it look like a pro blog article. But the 'first draft' is an excellent starting point...and saves a lot of time by not starting from a blank page.

The BIG CON is that the ADD-ON DATA PACKS that make First Draft even more accurate cost $15 apiece. And thus $80 for First Draft is a crazy price. Maybe $80 for a version that included Data Packs but $80 plus $15 per data pack, come on! Your software is very good but not that great!

IN CONCLUSION, First Draft for free plus buying 2 particular data packs for $30...I say I got a good deal today at GOATD!
THANK YOU First Draft Developer!

I have tried three times to download and try today's offering. Even though I followed the instructions perfectly, I keep getting a window that states it isn't registered, so some features won't work. When I click out of that window, it brings up one offering to sell the program to me, all unlocked, and then immediately brings up paypal for me to pay them for it. The time is going to run out before I can get an answer on this problem, I'm sure. I really wanted to try it.

Installed fine on my win 10 x64 however, I can not seem to register it. I have registered it many times and each time it says it was registered successfully and to close the program and restart it, and each time I do so it opens as unregistered. I have ran it as admin and regular so I am at a loss. It seems like software I might would use.
Thx anyway GOTD.

I hate to knock something a developer is giving away, but people whose first language isn't English and people with little writing experience need to know what this product is and isn't. Software to help generate ideas and create outlines isn't a bad idea, but that's not what this product does. First Draft has a database of clichés, catch phrases and buzzwords that it randomly arranges into paragraphs. The result seems like an article, until you read it closely and realize it has absolutely no substance. As Richard S. noted in #29, Google wants to see original content. A user of First Draft would have to significantly change this product's result to make it original, which would be more work than writing an original piece in the first place. If you want to sell articles or create blog posts that get ranked well, use your own talent and creativity. If you just need a handy list of filler phrases, you might as well get this while it's free.

People who need and use this sort of software have NO right to call themselves writers or bloggers. Lazy, yes. Writer, no. Although its existence does explain the fire hose of bad prose that is the current state of writing on the Interwebs.

It's stuff like this that contributes to the massive dumbing down of the population - why write something coherent that people want to read when you can type in a few key phrases and let software generate this generic nonsense?

Just pathetic.

Reply   |   Comment by DD  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Hi DD. Thank you for your feedback. Please remember that the title of the software is "First Draft" because it generates first drafts. No first draft is ever appropriate for immediate publication, which is why the software is never promoted as something that creates publication-ready pieces.

I can't believe the number of posts condemning the program for writing 'drivel' and 'nonsense'. It's not intended to write finished product. It's a *first draft*, only intended to spark processes that a writer might use to jump-start his/her writing. If that doesn't fit with your particular creative process, then it's not for you.

Chris put it succinctly: "Why would people even read blogs made by bots?" Answer: they wouldn't and they don't. No one interested in writing a serious piece would use the output of this program as the end result.

It's just a tool. If you're inclined to write spam posts, you'd do that with or without First Draft.

Part of the problem here I think is that their website promises things like "generates comprehensible articles of any size in mere seconds". First Draft, if you're listening, tone down the rhetoric. It's a good program, but it doesn't do as much as you say it does.

Based on the examples above, I don't see that it creates a helpful first draft. It seems to blur and fog the topic.

Now, if it could create an outline of sub-topics to be pursued, that might be helpful.

It seems great from the example someone posted. Furthermore, I can say from experience, all of Nicole Miller's products are wonderful, professional and wel lthought. In regards to anything relating to writing, she a true expert (no B.S. here!. The one problem it encountered was the registration that was difficult; after several tries, it finally gave me the appropriate window instead of leading me to an invoice to be paid by Paypal for $49.99. I probably wouldn't have minded paying that once I got to see what it does. but I like to have the choice, and especially not get that associated to a free program. This rambling done, I just tried it. Seems to me the topics covered by the purpose and the benefit may be limited. I believe it will prove to be an excellent tool for posting on Internet and any other kind of Marketing. Then again, I only played with the top elements, I now need to fill in the side choices. So in all, I guess it takes a little time to master it, but I can see this being a wonderful tool - thank you for this great find!

It could've been interesting but there are too many drawbacks and limitations.
- Templates are "encrypted" (i.e. content is scrambled) so you can't edit or create at will.
- Replacements are not computer friendly (no fields, you have to select manually the text between quotes)
- Mouse (touchpad) is weird: it seems the main screen has 2 zones, the one on the right I can scroll vertically whilst on the left scrolling is not working
- English only
- Only one add-on. If you want more it's $49 per item, very expensive. They could have provided at least 2 add-ons, so we can compare contents.

This is not going to help in writing. For random pseudo article, there are better written resources on the Internet. I don't know who's gonna waste $80 on this GOTD in the hope it will automatically fill a blank page to get you started with the next best-seller.

Please, explain, what is this program for. Why would people even read blogs made by bots?
I recently saw many fake blogs with content generated by bots. People probably made them to make money from clicks (via ads). Such things only litter the internet, making it harder to find valuable, helpful content.

Dear bloggers, if you have nothing to say, DON'T write another entries in your blogs. It's as simple as that.

I write SEO articles for several content mills online. I can tell you that the kind of articles this software produces are worthless for SEO purposes because Google knows what a "spun" article is, and that's what these look like. Google has begun penalizing websites that have content of this nature, so it could actually hurt your rankings. As far as helping a person write a fairly decent article, it would be far easier to write from scratch rather than stumble through the goobletygook junk that this software produces.

Reply   |   Comment by Richard S.  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

Spot on, if you think it will help you write blog posts to get better search rankings, it won't, and in many cases will make your rankings worse. The only solution to that is good content and hard work. The Google search algorithm is smart and can pick spun article out with ease.

Installed and registered with no problems (win7-64) Novel program with many uses. So far I have found no way to use columns and billeted lists. Definitively useful to jump start ideas and create first drafts. Grammar and spelling a little 'iffy' but overall a useful program.

Thank you for your feedback, incenseman. I will definitely look into providing columns and bulleted lists in the software, although if you like, you can always insert a numbered list of items from the "Insert Article Part" option in the lower, right-hand corner. And in case you're curious, little grammar and spelling errors are corrected with each updated version. Thanks again!

A few hours ago I sent an email to the support of this publisher:
support@justoutsourcing.com
(as stated on their page)

Almost immediately my ISP sent me an alert stating that it was impossible to deliver the email.
(wrong address or site down or other tech problems on the receiver side)

So, I'll state here my questions:

Quote
Hi,

Just downloaded and registered your wonderful program via the Giveawayoftheday.

Really tempted to buy - but I have a few questions if I may...

About the license:
a) I have desktop and a notebook; am I allowed to install it on both?
b) Should I buy a new computer, is it possible to transfer your program to the new one?
(both from a license and technical point of view)
b-1) if so, without a reinstall and/or keeping/transferring any customization/preferences and all add-ons, themes, end saved files?

About purchasing:
a) After registering I landed to an order page with a special offer/pricing ($49 ans something...)
But closing the browser I lost the link and related details.
I guess that it is a special offer to today's GOTD - taht said:
a-1) until when is it valid
a-2) may you (re)send me the link to that offer-page, please?
b) Possibly I missed something but I did not find the pricing for themes and add-ons in general...
c) In addition the special offer do you offer some kind of "bundles" or quantity discount for purchasing multiple themes/add-ons?

Being a time sensible matter your prompt feedback will be sincerely appreciated.

Thank you for your attention and your time,

Giorgio

I installed this without too much trouble - thank you to those before me who said to look for the option to install an icon. Registering was almost simple - I had to close the program before I could get the help button to give me a registration box. Once I closed and reopened, however, it worked easily.

Once registered, the program advised closing and reopening to get the full program. Did that. My computer asks me each time I open it if I really want to let it open. Minor annoyance but still there.

Had to give this program a whirl but I'm uninstalling it. It seems to be designed for products only. Any other topic, such as cats, brings ludicrous results. It *does* have a little test box to help you select your terms and advises adjusting these terms until you get a sensible test sentence. However, the terms available do not allow for much besides products. Not my kind of writing so I will have no use for it.

I'm sure this could be useful to the right people, but not for me. Thank you anyway!

Downloaded and runs without problems on my Win7-64 laptop. During installation I changed the destination from Program files (x86) to C:\ and there's no need to right click and run as administrator.

My thoughts:

--This program is not going to write your blog for you, or replace your copy writer, but it has definite potential for getting things started, helping to flesh out an article, or sparking a new thought process.

--I wouldn't trust it with grammar or usage, and I second another poster's caution to non native English speakers.

--With practice, especially with careful choosing useful keywords and parameters, I think it could do a respectable job of creating a fair first draft. With strong emphasis on "first".

--It's just an interesting and novel (at least to me - I've never seen anything like it) piece of software.

It's a keeper for me.

Just installed this, I am concerned to find it demands administrator rights to run. That means it gains rights to make system changes on every run... Why on earth would it need that! To compound the trust issue of demanding admin rights, for no apparent reason, the executable is unsigned so no tamper resitance! May I suggest that the developers determine why it this enhanced text editor needs admin rights and tweak the design so that it fits into windows security model without demanding such all encompassing rights and consider digitally signing the main executable. I don't currently have time to test out the claimed features, maybe later I'll get some more time and post my experiences with it.

Hi TK. As I explained above, "I unfortunately don’t have access to a Win 8 or 10 machine, but from what I’ve learned thus far, those operating systems don’t allow software to write and/or delete files without permission — even the ones that it creates. Since First Draft manipulates files, it must get the right permissions to do that."

I totally agree. A word processor/editor should NOT need Admin rights to my system. I can't think of a reason it should. Maybe the developer can shed a little more light on the subject?
Thanks,
Mike

I have to say thank you GOTD for offering this title today. Not because I think I will be using this but because it solved a mystery to me. For many years now I have a blog at WordPress and often, way to often, I get spam comments there. As new comments need to be approved and my spam filter is fairly good working most of them are placed in the spam folder and most of them I discovered now have one thing in common. They are written with this or similar software title. The comments I don't approve/delete are oddly fitting to the articles they are placed yet make no sense at all. Now I know why.

I probably won't make use of this as the tests I did using keywords I might use on my blogs didn't generate any really useful outcome to me but again...it generated content I recognize as being used by spammers that only post to get their name links (that often lead to pills that enhance certain body parts, quick cash pages and work from home and make big money sites). It might be a very last resort for me when I would really have a writers block and HAVE to post something but tbh I rather post a few weeks nothing than posting the nonsense this program produces. I have more work rewriting the outcome than thinking up something myself.

I am impressed though with what comes out, like I said it is oddly fitting the keywords yet at the same time often complete nonsense. No thumbs there for. Can't thumb it up as it can be used to spam my blog with nonsense, can't thumb it down either as it actually is rather impressing software :) Hope THAT makes sense

I think you may have perfectly nailed the "purpose" of this software. Thanks.

Thank you for your feedback, Mavadelo. I'm sorry that your impression of the software is an unfavorable one and one that makes you think of spam. The problem with that accusation, of course, is that the software uses an algorithm to generate software with the English language. If the English language makes you think of spam, then there's nothing I can do about that. But I thank you for you honesty!

I reached the exact same conclusion: some of the spam I get which contains "substantive content" that makes absolutely no sense was written with this or a similar software.

I also love the wording you used to convey your thoughts on it. If the software were "substantially better," such that it was actually capable of generating a coherent paragraph after being given three or even a few key words, you still wouldn't need it.

Thank you for your feedback, Sadler. Please remember that First Draft does not generate publication-ready prose. It produce first drafts (hence, the name of the software), and it's up to the author to fill in what's missing or fix what's wrong. First Draft is merely a starting point.

Downloaded and installed were smooth, using Windows 7 Pro. Never use this type of software. I found from the very beginning, the user interface very friendly. By adding a few lines and words I was able to use First Draft right off. Just Outsourcing is base in San Mateo, CA USA. The software First Draft is the brain child of Nicole Miller. As I'm always writing stuff, junk, thoughts and general BS. Many times, I get lost in what I want to say, how to say it and in what order. Over time, I believed this software could help that. Example of what came from my first try. The facts are entertaining, but readable. ==========================================
Multiverse as a Road to a Chance to Encourage Advancement
==========================================

«In every country across the globe», theory plays a major role in understanding black holes creating multiverses for a number of important reasons. Analysis shows that it's a valuable practice for anyone who wants to make a phenomenal impact, and in a multitude of confirmed instances, it contributes to a unique and personal experience to a high degree. At some point, however, some people tend to inhibit the completion of key tasks through their theory. Some people can't grasp the idea without escalating complexity. What are we overlooking?

We're inclined to trust Multiverse, a world-class theory resource, as the answer. Had it not been for Multiverse, we're not certain we could have successfully had a wide-scale influence at a time when we needed to most. The following are a number of important concerns.

-----------------------------------------------
Multiverse's Power Implements a Wide Variety of Strategies
-----------------------------------------------
«Because of its influence», understanding the competence of Multiverse's power in advance helps with appreciating its value. The reason why comes down to one word: authenticity. The typical theory resource contains only about 5 percent of Multiverse's leverage. There's lots of information to evaluate here.

After writing so many negatives things about software here on GOTD, its nice to write a positive one. First Draft, is definite keeper for anyone that writes a lot!

Created a document that would be nowhere near fit for publication because of its poor quality and then did an analysis using this program.
It quite happily accepted it from the point of view of grammar and spelling, I most certainly didn't.

Was hoping it was like some of the old DOS programs that really did a good analysis of documents such as reading level and complexity.
Unfortunately, I haven't found anything to compare with them in Windows, a shame as they are most useful.

Today's download was a disappointment in both the text it produced and analysis of documents.
Would be very upset if I had paid the full price for this program.

Exactly what I was looking for; very similar to the old DOS programs in its functionality, the grade required to be able to understand the text you have written is most useful.

Often simple changes make it easier for your reader to understand and is immediately reflected in the grade level.

A first-rate site that does a really useful analysis of your text; it wasn't impressed by the document produced by today's download

Installed fine on Windows 8.1, but as noted by others it is a nuisance that you have to run as Administrator.
It's an interesting idea but a shame that the majority of the suggested phrases are aimed at Internet Marketing and not writing in general. Looking at the above example from Kvbunnies and what it has produced about tractors and farming, it looks like a good article until you read it and then you realise that it is complete rubbish, doesn't actually mean anything and would never be written by anyone with a command of the English language.

Thank you for your feedback, Harrowman. When people complain about the software generating "gibberish," it's usually because they didn't use the right words in the right places. Please refer to this page for help with word placement and usage: http://www.justoutsourcing.com/files/fd/first-draft-keyword-inputs.html That should get rid of any gibberish you see (unless there's a goof in the software).

Cool
I don't believe I have had such a tool before.
Clean
It generates what appears to be good grammar.
Quick
It is great to get a quick draft to work from.
Want to learn more

Installation?
Installed quickly on Windows 8.1
Registration?
I registered, using the supplied code, and restarted.
Copying and Pasting Text into Word Processor - first try
I tried copying and then pasting into a Libre Office text document.
It indicated that it was not registered in the text that was pasted.
I then closed down First Draft again and restarted. After generating text, I tried copying and pasting text. It worked this time.

Good Morning to everyone this beautiful day.

When looking to see where the company is located the only info consumers will find on the 'About' page is a resume for the 'Owner' Nicole Miller. It does state that this person is in the USA but no address is provided. When looking at the 'Press' tab if consumers scroll down they will see a street address in California. Also on the 'About' page the company has several different links to transcript certificates.

When searching for previous versions of this software on GOTD site nothing is found.

Minimum System Configuration:

Win XP, Win Vista, Win 7, Win 8, Win 10
1024x768 screen resolution or above
300 MHz Processor
320 MB RAM
Internet Explorer
Default E-Mail Program


Easy install on a Win 10, 64-bit OS.

Problem: Required to right click and select 'Run as Administrator'.

Consumers should be able to click on an icon without worrying about right clicking and selecting run as administrator. For some novices (my parents come to mind on this) they would be totally lost on right clicking and selecting run as administrator. Secondly this is an extra step in getting the program started.

Up on start consumers pick three different key words after clicking Okay a resizable window opens and an article is written. My three keywords were Farmers, Tractors and Farming. Below is the article:

==========================================
Substantial Tractors: How to Get It
==========================================

On a regular basis, tractors becomes the single, most advantageous issue in farming for good reason. Based on specific criteria, it can direct events to a satisfactory conclusion, and our experience shows that it can complete a key goal. As we're all aware, however, for some of us ordinary folks, it's a task that has long-range consequences. Some individuals endure an agonizing procedure or a lot of misconceptions through their tractors. What's doable then?

Considered to be a valuable solution, Farmers helps «people who need to «provide what's been needed all along»» with tractors. Crafting a positive experience is what Farmers is known for. You can find what you've been looking for all along below.

-----------------------------------------------
Farmers's Momentum: Perform a Well-Defined, Factual Analysis
-----------------------------------------------
Here's where being able to «influence change and development» produces a positive influence -- through Farmers's momentum. Farmers's momentum provides what could have been needed all along, pushes things to a profound level and uses a wide variety of strategies. And good tractors comes from «a specific accomplishment», a direct result of applying its momentum. Not only that, its momentum helps not only put things into a meaningful perspective, but also contribute to an overall experience.

Major players advise us to learn more about the most profound way to «support a key goal or activity» just to start laying the groundwork. Accordingly, this is where we find a good feeling about what can happen. At the current time, other tractors tools simply don't have what it takes to direct events to a satisfactory conclusion. We'll show you more a bit later on.

-----------------------------------------------
Farmers's Reliability: Clear Up Confusing Issues
-----------------------------------------------
Don't try to validate a commitment until you've first evaluated Farmers's reliability beforehand. Farmers, by itself, certainly can be trusted, but it's its reliability that helps «support a key goal or activity». And the significance that you place on its reliability helps you recognize what's really critical and, ultimately, take things to an advanced level. Farmers's reliability helps «put things into a meaningful perspective» by shaping a unique and individual experience, and it puts things into a substantial perspective while doing it.

Early in your review, ascertain what can be improved. This should give you a better depiction of the difference between Farmers and the other tractors resources around. Things that this prevents:

1. Unnecessary, additional work.
2. A multitude of errors.
3. An uphill battle.
4. A negative response.
5. A problem.

Without its reliability, in fact, tractors would be inadequate. We'll explain more a bit later on.

-----------------------------------------------
Farmers's Professionalism: Identify Each Option
-----------------------------------------------
As part of successfully supporting a lifelong interest, you'll need to first study Farmers's professionalism. The significance that you place on Farmers's professionalism helps you substantiate the results and, ultimately, complete a key goal. And its professionalism stops tractors from functioning erratically as well. The ability to «expand a limited opportunity» and «make a wide-scale impact» is directly correlated with its professionalism.

So evaluating the impact is truly helpful when making sure that things work as claimed. It's actually a task that helps you clarify conflicting information. This is truly useful for first-time users since they can support a key goal or activity with Farmers immediately. If you understand and adopt the methods provided herein, you can expect a deeper understanding.

-----------------------------------------------
Conclusion
-----------------------------------------------
Armed with this information, you're in a good position to start tractors with Farmers. Farmers is extremely flexible. As the saying goes, there is no other way but up. Give your tractors a head start by exploiting Farmers. It's the most advisable thing to do today.


I can see this program having benefits for bloggers. It could easily provide fresh content. However I do not see this as helping an author with writing a book. It might provide an author with ideas to overcome writers block.

I think I will keep this program. Who knows when it might just come in handy in writing the next product review.

Have a wonderful day GOTD people.

I agree with you on all points. Definitely useful for review style write ups (by the example), Not so good for a book creation. But the description kinda pointed the way. "article based on PRODUCT NAME and couple KEYWORDS"

But for me, this is perfect. My creative juices really flow when I see something that's necessary to correct some lame half-witted, misconceived and misdirected mumbo trying to be technical babble. This beauty definitely gives me somewhere to start working with and be able to put in my own words, not plagiarizing.

Since First Draft manipulates files, it must get the right permissions to do that. I hope it serves you well in the future.

Installed quickly and easily on Windows 10 64 bit with no problems. It needs to be run as administrator, but having set that works it perfectly.

I can see a lot of uses for this and a very quick play suggests that it is going to be a real help, I will be using it later for some work I have to do and give it a real test. My initial thoughts were 'why use this when I have Word?', but now I know - it is NOT Word, it's a tool to offer assistance with content, ideas and structure and can be saved as a Word document, if wished, for later editing. I'm already liking what I am seeing and hope it will save me a lot of time and maybe make my blogs and articles a bit more cohesive and interesting.

Thank you GAOTD, I'll certainly be keeping this one.

Just a quick update having used the software to generate a few documents this morning. I expected to have to do some degree of editing when using a generator of this nature, one has to be realistic, but to be honest, not to this extent. It's a clever idea but, frankly, all I've seen from several documents so far, is far more techno-babble and nonsense than I expected. I am disappointed, I would have been even more so had I paid the price of $80, although I will persevere a little longer, but it's usefulness now appears very limited.

Reply   |   Comment by Kestrel  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+20)

I'm sorry to hear of your disappointment, Kestrel. One problem that some people have with First Draft is expecting specific information from a generic source. That's not possible to provide. What IS possible is using templates to guide or nudge articles into the direction in which you them to go. I have no idea what type of documents you were working on, but it sounds as if they would benefit from either a template, or a data pack, which provides topic-specific words and word phrases.

Ok, a quick test. W7, 64 bit. Registration went smoothly. Easy to understand UI. I love it. I can change many different settings to product outline or full article. Having the choice of outline or full article is great. Improvement: uniqueness of produced article by comparing online database would be great. but i know that would be complicated and probably expensive. Perhaps a cooperation between Copyscape?

For a non-native speaking American you do quite well. But, if you were using that program to post your remarks, there is a glaring error. The pronoun (I) in your reply review should always be capitalized.

Thank you for your wonderful comments, hardgirl. And yes, you're right, having access to a remote database would be handy. However, one of the benefits of First Draft is its speed, and an online database would slow it down tremendously. The good news is, as I continue to add content to the newer versions, uniqueness will be a given, and the program should remain as fast as it is right now.
