    • How do I convert an educational license to a commercial license?
      • If you decide you wish to convert to a commercial license, the educational license can be upgraded to commercial for the same low price that a commercial user would pay to upgrade their commercial license to the latest version.  Most other products make an educational user pay full price to get to the commercial license. You can do the upgrade to commercial at any time, but if you choose to do it when an upgrade is on offer, then it is a simple matter of buying that upgrade at the commercial upgrade price.
