When the trial period has ended, you will see a similar window but you can no longer "Continue" using the "Trial version", and you need to activate a commercial license in order to keep working


During the testing period you will find the following limitations:

  • A maximum number of Entities will be Imported (from each incoming table) or Exported (from the drawing, when testing the "Professional" Edition). The quantity will be the 75% of the total of Entities to be processed
    • The number of the Entities processed if you select the option "Import only Features in the current view" when Importing, is also conditioned by this condition
  • A "DEMO" watermark will be added (if you are testing the "Standard" or "Professional" editions):
    • When showing any 'Background Map'
    • When importing geo-referenced raster images. Thus, a new image will be saved on disk even if the imported image it is not transformed. The user will be prompted for the location to save the new generated image
      • If you 'Import-all' the images in a folder, the "Working path" will be used to save the new images
  • Only 10 uses of any API function will be accepted per session (if you are testing the "Professional" edition)
