SmartEdit Update

The folks at SmartEdit, my favorite fiction editing software, has just release their latest version of the program with some new features (copied the following from the change log):

Version 3.101 (Release date: August 29th, 2013)

1. Minor release, but contains key new functionality -- free to all licensed users

2. New "Export Reports & Print Reports" toolbar

3. Export results of all checks to Excel (XLSX), CSV, Text (TXT), PDF or HTML

4. Export results of individual checks in the same formats

5. Print results of single checks or of all checks

6.10 Day Trial reset for all trial users

If you have trouble editing your work, don't know what to look for and/or want a completely impartial review, SmartEdit is the way to go. A license for the full program costs $59.95, but you can still test drive it via their free trial, so you can get a real feel for the program before you purchase. I don't often recommend paying for any software, especially with so many freeware alternatives available online. That said, after I did a thorough test drive I bought this one myself, and I use it every week for something, so I do believe it is worth the investment.
