[IMPORTANT] Introduction of annual subscription plan

Dear customers,

Thank you for using/considering our products. We have an important notice regarding upcoming changes with sales and support of the products.

Over the years we have sold our plug-in products with perpetual license and have provided free updates to support new versions of Adobe Illustrator (AI) and Mac/Windows OS. However, as the frequency of the new release increases, catching up with it is becoming more difficult for us.
Under the circumstances, we have decided to introduce an annual subscription plan which will enable us to continue quality service to all our users. Current form of license (perpetual license) will end sales accordingly (Except for iPM plug-ins).

We thank you for your business and hope you understand the necessity for this change.

[What is the subscription plan?]
You can use the plug-in for one year with annual payment. After the subscription expires the plug-in will stop working. As you renew the contract and pay for another year, the plug-in will work again. Future updates and technical support services are included in the plan.

[Products to move to subscription plan]
BPT-Pro4, EXDXF-Pro4 (CAD-COMPO4 will end sales)
*iPM products (plug-ins for pattern making) will not move to the subscription plan.

[Perpetual license sales end date] 12pm January 29th, 2021 (JST)
(Technical support service end date: September 30th, 2021)

[Subscription plan sales start date] 10am February 4th, 2021 (JST)

[Subscription Plan Pricing]
BPT-Pro4 : US$99.00/year
EXDXF-Pro4 : US$99.00/year
*The payment is annual and one-time.
*One license is needed for one user/PC.

[Support for Illustrator2021]
The products currently sold will not support Illustrator2021. Compatible data will be available on the subscription plan.
