Operating System W10
Papyrus Author Version 10.06Pro
I deliberately let the Pro revert to Free on a single machine to see what would happen.
Character DB inaccessible, expected.
Thinkboard visible, but not editable, expected.
Organiser inaccessible, but summary notes still visible in Navigator window. Reasonable.
All Pro features like timelines missing, as expected.
When I reactivated the next day, I noticed it had lost my target settings, even though they should have been in the same project file somewhere. I had to re-do the daily word count, the overall book target count and the deadline date.
The Organiser had reverted to defaults too, I think, as it was now showing full names for characters instead of the initial letters from the day before. Another lost setting?
Shouldn’t those have just been automatically put back when the Pro version found the config files, or whatever it uses? They must have been stored in the project somewhere. It seems strange to wipe them out when switching between the two versions.
Also a question: Does Papyrus Author require a constant connection to the internet for licence verification? I can’t find anything in the manual about that.
If I go away for a week, say with only my laptop and no internet, would I be able to use it as long as the licence still had at least a week to run, or would I need to keep connecting it to wifi to get it working?
