What is our licensing policy exactly?

We frequently get asked, what is our license usage policy with our products.

Well, our license usage policy for PDF2ID, our pdf-to-indesign Adobe InDesign plug-in, ID2Office our InDesign to Word and InDesign to PowerPoint InDesign plug-in and PDF2Office, our pdf to word, pdf to excel, pdf to ppt converter are the same.

It’s a 1 machine 1 license model but we allow desktop/laptop installation and usage. So, lets assume you have a desktop and have a laptop and would like to use the software on both; you are allowed to do so. So long as 1 machine is in sleep state while the other one is in use or they are not on the same network and you are the same user (nobody else can use it).

PDF2Office for iWork, our pdf to pages, pdf to keynote and pdf to numbers converter is covered by same policy but we also include a special Family pack and SOHO licensing policy that allows installation and usage on 5-machines (even if the users are different). The exact licensing terminology is as follows: .
