RoughDraft has the following 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.

  • 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.
  • Full find and replace, including the ability to list all the matches in the current file or in a number of files.
  • Font styles for quicker formatting.
  • Shortcut keys for just about everything.
  • A comprehensive help system.

  • Indexes and tables of contents.
  • Tables.
  • Pictures.
  • Footnotes.
  • A grammar checker (eeurch!)
