Before you compose an e-mail or reach for the phone please make sure you have looked through the Help file first. If
you have a question that the Help file doesn't answer, or are reporting what appears to be a bug then we will be
pleased to hear from you. But if it is a question that is answered in the Help file then all we will do is point you
to the relevant section, and you will just get an answer a little bit slower. This is not meant to be awkward, but we
try to keep our costs down to allow us to produce this high quality software at value-for-money prices. Answering
support queries is an expensive undertaking. After all, some of the major software companies either charge for support
or provide it on premium-price phone numbers. We don't want to have to do that.
Most of our products have Knowledgebase on the product's website. For others you will need to check the Help file of
the product and review the FAQ section of the help.
Check the product website for a searchable knowledgebase. Enter keywords about your issue into the knowledgebase and
applicable solutions will be listed.
If the answer can't be found in the FAQ's or knowledgebase, then click on the Help | About menu item of the program
to determine the version you are running. Then check the product website (download page) to make sure you are running
the latest version. If someone else has reported the same problem it may already be fixed. We have a Revision History
posted for many of our products at our websites. If the problem you are experiencing has already been fixed, it will
be in the Revision History. Refer to our Upgrade Information for an explanation of how to
upgrade a licensed copy to the latest version.
You can Contact Us by e-mail, fax, or mail. You may also contact us by phone between the
