Download now & try

And the best: All those features can be used without a license. We appreciate if you order licenses to honor our work, but it's not required. If you like to use the other 7000 functions in the plugin, you may need the license. If needed, you can request a trial license.

You can enable all the options via our preferences dialog. In your start script you can disable all those features for normal users to not confuse them if a red bracket shows.
