Q: Are my classic ArtPro and PackEdge modules replaced by upgrades to ArtPro+ advanced?
A: No. PowerTrapper, PowerLayout and PowerStepper remain, allowing a user to select or deselect specific modules when running ArtPro classic 20 or PackEdge 20.
Q: How does this unification impact “other” modules?
A: Equinox, Plate Cut (aka Staggered Cut), Studio Designer are valid modules for ArtPro Classic, PackEdge and ArtPro+.
Hence there are no major changes for these products. The editors simply "share" the licenses when running on one computer.
Q: How does ArtPro+ 20 react on classic ArtPro or PackEdge modules?
A: PowerTrapper, PowerLayout and PowerStepper carry an upgrade from ArtPro+ Essentials to ArtPro+ Advanced. Like in ArtPro Classic, the user can configure which of the classic module is taken to activate the ArtPro+ Advanced Edition (network licenses only).
"Q: Can I still use PackEdge 18 and ArtPro 18?
A: PackEdge 18 and ArtPro Classic 18 will run with ArtPro+ 20 licenses."
Q: Can I still use older versions of PackEdge and ArtPro with these ArtPro+ 20 licenses?
A. With ArtPro+ licenses you can run ArtPro+ 16.0→20.0, ArtPro Classic 16.1.1→ 20.0 and PackEdge 18.0→20.0
In ArtPro Classic 16.1.1, 18.0 and 18.1, you may need to select "ArtPro+" as your base license in the Preferences > General > Show Licenses dialog, instead of "ArtPro Basic".
Q: How is this impacting my standalone Step And Repeat applications?
A: PowerLayout 20 and Plato 20 are not affected by above changes. The licensed version is simply increased to v20.
The unification will happen with a future release.
Today PowerLayout and Plato can be upgraded to add a ArtPro+ Advanced to your configuration

Q: Can I use the license on Mac and PC?
A: Yes. You can use the licenses to run ArtPro+ on Mac or on PC.

A: Yes. You can use your classic editor and ArtPro+ the same time.

Please get in touch with us if you want to switch operating systems when moving to ArtPro+.

A: No PowerTrapper is a product specific module that is not sharable between ArtPro and PackEdge.
