System Requirements

Difference between demo and full version

The difference between demo and full version is only in "demo" values being recovered with full version. Except that, the demo and full versions are identical and comply with the same set of specifications. This means that if demo does not support a certain feature, neither full version will do.

If due to file damage an entire object (such as a paragraph or an image) has been lost, the full version will not be able to recover it. A paragraph missing from a demo-recovered file will remain missing with full version.
