Effective Editomat
Editomat serves many purposes.
  • Finds and highlights issues

    Some of these may be deliberate, and if so you can ignore Editomat.

    Other issues in your writing may be unintentional, and Editomat will help you find words and patterns you didn't intend to repeat.

  • Breaks your flow

    It's easy when editing your work to get into the flow and see the story you intend to write, rather than what's on the page. By highlighting the issues, Editomat breaks you out of your story and into what's on the page.

  • Statistical Analysis

    Editomat provides statistics like the Fliesch reading level, word usage, graphs of emotional intensity to help you determine if your piece is properly targetted for the audience.

  • Comparisons

    Editomat can compare your work to other works. This helps you figure out if you're meeting your reader's expectations or if your story is missing it's target.

  • Configurable

    You can define your own patterns for Editomat to highlight. This lets you customize Editomat to your personal needs.

    For example, if the old houses in your horror novel have creeks in the walls, instead of creaks, spell checker's won't catch it.

    Add creek to the pattern list and Editomat will highlight these and you can keep your creeks out by the deserted graveyard instead of in the walls.
