Frequently Asked Questions
When you purchase our software directly from us (as opposed to in the App Store), you receive an email with a license file download link. Once downloaded, double-clicking the attached license file licenses the associated program. Once licensed, selecting the License menu in our programs will display a nicely-personalized license file.
Note: As explained in the license file email you receive, the download link will expire in a few days, so please download your license right away.
