We recommend that all v4 users upgrade
to v4.2.7. It is a free
upgrade for all users with a valid v4 licence (we aren't

platform. However you can export PDFs from
PerfectTablePlan and send them to your iPad.
Probably the slickest way
to do this is by installing DropBox on
your PerfectTablePlan computer and on your iPad (the basic plan is
free). This will then
seamlessly sychronize changes. But you can also email PDFs to
your iPad or use iTunes + the iBooks app to sync from computer to your

We get quite a few questions about
PerfectTablePlan licensing. Most of them are answered on our FAQ page:
Can I install my licence key on another machine?
Can I share my licence key with someone else?
Can I transfer my licence to someone else?
I’ve lost my licence key, can you re-send it?
What upgrades am I entitled to when I purchase a licence key?
Can I buy a single licence for my whole organization?
NB/ We can
spell. In UK English licence
is a noun and license
is a verb.
