Hi Peter, i have jus had a thought regarding the SETTINGS MENU that is getting more crowded day by day. Perhaps its time to think about giving it a bit of a tidy up by eliminating certain unnecessary feature as i have mentioned one already CLOCK SETTINGS another one comes to mind, now its only a suggestion and see what you think.
Why have this as an option, i know i have used it and its simple you hit a couple of buttons and presto you have the full version, now i had to go through this every time i reinstalled ST3 and it works fine, my guestion is why bother us with this, cant it be done automatically in the background and not bother the users that have already purchased the software, now i dont know all reasons for having it but my suggestion would be this as i have seen it in a lot of other software and it is also a smarter system to prompt new comers to buy the product yet simplifies it for the allready commited.
As you fire up ST3 it auto detects if you have this purchased and opens up in full mode without the needing to reactivat it manualy, if it cant establish the purchase it opens up a window to say you are runing in DEMO MODE would you like to purchase or continue in demo, now you have a choice if you are a new commer it always prompts you if you want to use it in demo untill you buy which is not much of an inconveniance since you havent paid for it and it is a professional tool that does a shipload, but it doasnt waste the paid users time, also it eliminates the need for one more settings option decluttering it for paid users.
I dont know if its doable but it makes strategic sense everyone benefits the only looser is the non purcheser.
Simple,hastle free, time saver, benfits buyers, prompts potential buyers, simplifies settings etc
