The Desktop version of VivaDesigner is available in several free of charge and licensed editions. All licensed editions of the desktop version except the Classroom Edition are for one workstation only. Please have a look at our detailed version overview/comparison (PDF) on the right hand side.
Use the free of charge “Demo/Trial Version” if you want to test VivaDesigner for a limited time. The functionality of this version is nearly identical to the purchased editions but has no hyphenation or spell check modules for licensing reasons but can export to PDF. After the trial period, you can however still open and edit your documents with the “Free Edition” or any other purchased desktop or Web edition.
Use the free of charge “Free Edition” if you want to test VivaDesigner, or if as a service provider you want to pass documents to your customers. The functionality of this edition is limited for licensing reasons. Compared to the time limited “Demo/Trial Version” you can not export to PDF. You can however still open documents from the other desktop or Web editions, edit, save and print them. The “Free Edition” may be used for both private and commercial purposes.
Use the licensed “Personal Edition” if you want to use the full version exclusively for private and non-commercial purposes. Non-commercial purposes are for example printed material for charitable organisations, public education institutions and all printed material for private use.
