existing users

If you have an existing license then you can either carry on until renewal with your existing set up and ignore messages about a new release, or you can install the new software.

Your current license will work in the new version (our licenses always cover upgrades).

Similarly the new version will operate the same way, and your existing workbooks will not need any changes eg the Merge Suite will still work fine on your existing templates.

The only minor hiccup you will encounter is any configuration you have saved will be lost eg if you have defaulted certain option buttons. You will also need to enter your license details again.

If you wish to upgrade your current license that is not yet expiring then please contact us for an upgrade quote.
