Moving Between, or Writing Within Paragraphs?
So maybe you've used some AI Templates to get output on questions or headers, or have sentences already written in the editor, but you want to continue a paragraph or transition between multiple paragraphs with the AI writer. Frase's Transitions feature, in addition to templates like Next Paragraph and Paragraph Finisher, can help with that, and also this Sentence Lead template that can be imported.
The AI is sensitive to context, but you can target specific sentences within a paragraph with Transitions and templates.
Build off/within a paragraph using various methods
1) Partial Sentence Method
This method involves manually altering the sentence, or writing your own partial sentence, and then running the AI writer to complete the rest by pressing keyboard shortcuts, Command + Enter (on Mac) or Control + Enter (on a PC).
In the screenshot below, the user changed "This process can be very complex because there are....." to "This process can be very complex since it is" and puts the cursor in blank space right after "is", then runs the Command keyboard shortcut mentioned in the paragraph above.
The output from the writer is shown below in red. It's essentially an autocomplete of the paragraph that then branches off to another paragraph.
In the paragraph shown in the screenshot below, the entire paragraph (2 sentences) is highlighted and then the user navigates to "AI Shortcuts --> Transitions --> Addition", and selects "Furthermore" as the word to lead it with.
The green highlighted text is what was highlighted right before pressing AI Shortcuts button and using a transition in the screenshot below, and the output in the red box is what was written by AI after running the transition.
Now look at the previous screenshot, versus only highlighting one sentence in the screenshot below. The output goes in a different direction because only one sentence in the paragraph is taken as primary context. That's how Transitions are sensitive to context.
3) Utilizing Next Paragraph Template
The Next paragraph template is another way to get output stemming off of sentences and paragraphs. For example, on an empty line, press the / key to trigger the template menu. Search for the "Next Paragraph" template and select it, and copy and paste the paragraph of text you already have, or write in the template text box. Then click "Run Template".
Highlighted in red in the screenshot below is output, which is a follow-up paragraph to the paragraph entered in the template text box.
But what if I only write/paste 2 out of the 4 sentences from the paragraph in the Next Paragraph template's textbox and run it? Since the context is different, the output will take a different direction.
Only part of paragraph inputted into the Next Paragraph template: "For example, an e-commerce business may have separate strategies for Facebook Ads, Google Adwords, Pinterest ads, etc. Each platform has its own unique features that require specific tactics in order to optimize performance."
See screenshot below of the different output when only two sentences of the 4-sentence paragraph are inputted into the Next Paragraph template. Red box is the output.
You can also use "Paragraph finisher" template; you input one sentence into the template, and when it runs, it should write a few sentences that complete a paragraph by using that inputted sentence as the anchor.
4) Using ### to focus context
If you have a lot of randomly placed text in your editor and are working down the page, you might want to limit where the AI reads. Type or paste 3 hashtags on a blank line so that Frase will not account for the text above that point as context, only what's underneath the ### and to the left of your cursor will be taken into account. This helps focus context and filter out potential repetition.
