Hi Jamie,

I don't think I have.


Comment by: Allie (1-5-2019 21:25:00)

Hi there - I have a laptop that I plug into a monitor to use both screens. However, when I am only on the laptop and I initiate the Ref Tree Analyser, I can't see the dialogue box on my laptop. Is it searching for the other screen? Seems weird since all other applications know I'm not plugged in.

Secondly, every time I launch the Ref Tree Analyser it unhides all my hidden tabs. This is getting annoying as I need to re-hide the tabs once I'm done. The version I had before this didn't have that problem.

Please let me know how to fix both these issues. Thanks!

Hi Allie,

That indeed is the case. You can reset the position by opening the settings screen and pressing the "Reset Forms" button.

I agree this needs some work, but I haven't yet found a reliable way to detect whether the screen the dialog is shown on is actually attached to the system :-(


Comment by: Allie (2-5-2019 18:06:00)

Thanks so much for the quick response! I'll hit the Reset Forms next time.

Do you know how to fix it so that the application does not unhide hidden tabs? Thanks so much! This tool is amazing - I wouldn't be as efficient without it.

Hi Allie,

Thanks, glad you like it.

Does unchecking the "Unhide sheets" checkbox on the settings dialog work for you?


Comment by: Allie (3-5-2019 18:25:00)

So simple - I should have seen that dialog box. Thanks!!

Can one license key be assigned to multiple licenses?

If we purchase additional licenses, can the same license key be used for those new licenses?

Can we allocate/deallocate users to licenses from your web site?


Comment by: Jan Karel Pieterse (9-10-2019 10:50:00)

Hi David,

Yes, you can use a single key for multiple licenses. There is no means to deallocate registrations, but as long as the number of registrations using the license key stays within reason there is no need to do so.

I do prefer that you use the new license code if you purchase additional licenses.
