FWIW, I purchased the base version of Crossword Compiler and bought the scored word list from XWord Info. IMO, the best use of CC is cycling through all the fill options for various small grid sections (like a dozen or so squares) *after* you've set your themers and manually chosen the best non-theme long entries. The reason CC's demo may have had plenty of partials and made up words could be because their demo word list sucks. But if you buy a real one (or make your own), I think it works great. The one shortcoming of CC is that you can't update the scores on your word list while you're cycling through the fill options.

If you purchase the professional grid filler option you can add the words one at a time, and you can rescore (or delete) words as you encounter them. Highly recommended.
