Many times when I use Dragon Naturally Speaking, I write in Dragon Pad. I don’t write in it because it is better than Word, but instead because it does not include all the corrupt formatting code that Word includes. This enables me to copy/past the text from Dragon Pad safely into an html editor (for copy) or into WindowsLiveWriter (for blog articles).
Well, there is a big fat problem with Dragon Pad. 🙂
It does not have an auto-save function anywhere that I can find. If your computer crashes (as mine just did, thanks Microsoft Vista), if your Dragon Pad document is not saved, then you are out of luck.
The program just needs a simple auto-save or auto-recovery capability. That can’t be too hard can it?
