Ted, There is a drywall compound, comes in a bag, you have to add water, mix it up and it sets up in 20 minutes. There are other times that are slower. It is used to build corners and doesn't shrink as much as the bucket mud. Menards sells two types. The compound in a white bag is a soft compound that you can sand. The compound sold in a brown bag, when it sets up, it's water proof. If you don't remove it from your tools it's sets like cement. Even if you put your tools in water, it will set under water and once it sets it hard as a rock. I like to use it. Others hate it. Perhaps closest thing to the old plaster. If you look at old plaster walls, there is a gray cement plaster topped off with a white plaster.
If you have a large crack, I would recommend using something to open up the crack, fill it with the quick setting drywall compound and use drywall tape to cover the crack.
I use the slower setting mud to tape with. Almost never had a tape failure like I do with the mud in a bucket.
