On my mobile device I sometimes have network issues (or I cannot exclude being offline, as nobody else can).
For this reason I sometimes get displayed the demo version dialogue field when starting up CT. Out there in the wild there are dozens of licensing models, but not being able to use CT offline with the Proz.com license (that I use for convenience, I still have a valid license anyway, if I am not mistaken) seems a bit strange to me.
Shouldn't this be resolved? I must confess I do not know how (checking once in 24 hours or something similar) .
If you are a PLUS member at ProZ.com, CafeTran checks your membership status at the start-up. After that, you can go offline. Therefore, if you are able to predict any network issues during the day, just run it beforehand and let it keep running. Perhaps in the future, I may come up with some other ProZ.com PLUS membership verification. However, if you are working offline most of the time, please consider the other two licensing options available.
> Are there any limitations if a project with more than 500 segments is opened in Demo mode and then some seconds later switched to licensed mode?
In the Demo mode, CafeTran sets the 1000 segments limit for the translation memories (including the recalled ones) and 500 terms limit for the glossary. The switch from the Demo to the Full version is done at the start-up only (see the connection progress bar in the Dashboard > Other resources and services panel). If CT cannot connect to ProZ.com (e.g. you are being offline) at the start-up, it works in in the demo version. When your computer is back online, just restart the program to verify your PLUS membership.
BTW. the search for "license" in the Solutions section brings no result.
