Re: Difficulty with PDF Document

Just because a program is unsupported doesn’t mean it can’t be used.  I don’t know what the case will be with this program.  Do you purchase it or pay a price for continued use?  If it is offered as an ongoing service, it may no longer be available.  If you purchase it, and use it on your system, it will likely still be available.  Programs you purchase generally are after support stops.

Well thanks for that. But now I am in the age care place I don't have
funds for things like MS Office ans such.
Thanks anyway.
It's a real pity about Docuscan. It did such a good job.
Cheers
