CPC View ax and CPC Lite may be freely used to view
CPC documents on any computer. In addition,
they provide evaluation access to the additional functionality available
in the licensed viewer.
CPC View ax and CPC Lite run in one of two modes, depending on whether the host
computer has a CPC View license installed:
This document describes the limitations
of Lite mode.
- View mode: When used on a computer with a CPC View license,
CPC View ax and CPC Lite run in the fully licensed View mode, as described in the
- Lite mode: When run on an unlicensed computer,
CPC View ax and CPC Lite run in the restricted Lite mode, in which some functionality is
only available on an evaluation basis.
In Lite mode, each viewer window contains a title bar at the top. This title bar is not present
in the licensed viewer.
If you decide to upgrade to the licensed viewer, simply click on
the title bar. You will be taken to the
online upgrade page from which you can purchase the upgrade. If you use a credit card
on our secure server, you
can receive the upgrade immediately - with no additional downloads or installation
Certain functions of CPC View are only available in Lite mode on a limited-use evaluation basis.
These functions may be used as often as you like on up to three distinct URLs.
You will be asked for confirmation each time you attempt to use an evaluation function
on a new URL. Once you have exhausted the evaluation URLs, you will need to upgrade to
the licensed viewer to use the functionality on new URLs. (Each particular function
maintains its own list of the URLs it has been used on, so you can evaluate the different functions
on different sets of URLs.)
The following functions are available for a limited use evaluation:
- Annotation Editing.
The Annotate command
from the Mouse sub-menu of the right mouse menu.
- Copy Current View.
The Copy to Clipboard command
from the View sub-menu of the right mouse menu.
- Print Current View.
The Current view option of the
Print range group of the print dialog.
- Annotation Burn-In.
The CPC Burn-In Annotations option in
the Save as type drop-down menu of the
of the save dialog.
- Page Extraction.
The use of page ranges in the save dialog.
You may freely use the viewer to display CPC documents, even
in Lite mode. In addition, Lite mode allows you to evaluate the
additional file formats
the licensed viewer. There is no limit to the number of different URLs on which you
can evaluate this feature. Each time you view a document that is not in CPC format:
An evaluation reminder bar will be placed at the bottom of the viewer window.
A window will appear reminding you that you are using an evaluation feature of the viewer.
This window will not appear more than once every twenty-four hours.
If the document is printed,
the viewer will place an evaluation banner
over the center of the page, obscuring a region of the image.
Hint: If you want to print a non-CPC format, black-and-white image document
evaluation banner, use the Save As... command of the Document sub-menu
of the right mouse
menu. This command will allow you to save the document in CPC format. If you then open the
saved CPC format document, you will be able to print it without the banner.
