Frequently Asked Questions on the Trial Version
Has running the trial version any negative effect on my system when I later buy the full version from the App Store?
No, the trial version and the standard version are independent of each other. The demo has neither an effect on the App Store, nor on the App itself. You could even run both programs concurrently although that makes no sense.
How should I delete the trial version after I have purchased a license for the full version?
The App automatically asks you whether you like to take over settings from the trial version. After you did this, you should quit the trial version and drag its icon to the Trash.
