Receiving and activating your License Key (Premium license only)
If you purchased a Premium license you should have received your license key by email. The license key and download link will be sent to you in 2-4 business days once your order finishes processing.
The software and license key can also both be downloaded from your account on the eStore under "My Software Licenses"
Once you have your license key ready and sign pro PDF is installed, go to Settings > About > Manage License to enter the license key.
There you have two options before clicking Save:
- Copy and paste the full key string into the “Premium Mode” section and click Save
- Or click "Add license key from PC" and select the file you have downloaded from your account and click Save.
You must have internet access to activate your license key and ensure you have HTTPS port 443 open. Ensure that a firewall or other Internet security setting on PC or proxy is not blocking access to the license server.
Sometimes an error has been encountered when running Antivirus software. If so, disable before re-testing.
