Description

Do you write papers, books, articles, briefs, resumes, grants, translations, syllabi, or abstracts? Do you spend more than one sitting working on the same document? If so, then Draft Control is for you!

Draft Control works alongside your word processor to automatically store versions of your document and keep track of changes that you’ve made from one version to the next. It supports your writing as you move forward from draft to draft by automatically archiving each change and every version.


WHAT DRAFT CONTROL DOES

• Saves a version of your document each time you save it in your word processor
• Creates a timeline of backups that can be easily restored without replacing your current version
• Tracks any changes made to your document from one version to the next
• Displays the differences between any two versions


HOW DRAFT CONTROL WORKS

Draft Control fits into your writing workflow without interfering with your word processor. Draft Control runs in the background and automatically saves versions of your document. This way, Draft Control keeps track of versions and changes without cluttering up your document with Track Changes, notes, or edits. You will feel free to delete any chunk of text because Draft Control stores all versions, and makes it easy to search for previously deleted text.

Stop saving duplicates of your documents! In Draft Control you can add a label to any version, allowing you to differentiate between versions.


MORE TOOLS TO HELP YOU

Worried about keeping an offsite backup? Draft Control can easily and securely back up all versions of your document to iCloud.

Don't remember which version has the text you need? You can search through all versions for changed text. Once you find the version you're looking for, you can easily restore the desired text.

Want to see a list of changes between versions? You can compare any two versions to see what changed, and produce a PDF of the displayed changes to print or send to a colleague.

A collaborator made edits without using Track Changes? You can insert their version into your document's timeline to see exactly what was changed.
