Request: Option to disable/hide PRO features

Post by gerundt » Fri Nov 15, 2013 10:45 am

Hello forum,

we want to replace Adobe Reader in our company with PDF-XChange Editor. So all computers should get the editor installation but not all users need the PRO features. They need just a simple PDF viewer. (For example the clients at the workshop.)

Our plan is to install the Editor on all computers with GPO, but not add the license key to all. So the rest use just the FREE version.

It would be really cool, if we can disable or better hide the PRO features on these computers. It has a better usability, if the user don’t see menu items, they anyway can’t use. :)

Thanks for your help!

Greetings,
Tim Gerundt

Hello Tim,

This is not popssible in build 306 of the Editor, but I see that we are planning to add a "Hide Pro features" option in build 307 of the same. It would most likely work the same as the similar option in the Viewer.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

that sounds good! :)

Is there a timetable for the next releases or just the typical “it's done when it's done”? :lol:

Greetings,
Tim

Hi Tim,

We do have some internal estimates indeed, but I'd like to keep them that way for now and reply to you with the "expected" estimate you've pointed yourself above.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi narenbisht,

The voices of our users have certainly been heard, but do note that there is obviously a limited amount of items that can be included, within the timeframe the Dev. Team have. They have also had to prioritize certain features so that as many of the most requested features, as possible, will be included, along with fixes for many existing issues.

Cheers,

Build 307 released. Is "Hide PRO Features" available in 307?
