All Files created by us can be downloaded through the Files page. Many of these files was created long time ago, when we didn't have money to buy a software license and had to do everything by hand or using Excel. We know that it's still a reality in many countries, which is one of the reasons we created this site with a reasonable subscription price.
The files can be download for free but you need to logged to do that. Just create an account and ignore the no active order message in the Dashboard. You only need to pay if you intent to use the ΣCalc application.
The File types that we'll make available is:
- pdf: Portable Document Format (PDF) it's usually used for documents as books and manuals. You can open it with Adobe Acrobat or Foxit.

You can download any file from Files page by clicking in the download button either in the front page or in the info page. The download should initiate immediately (your browser may try to block it, if it's the cause, it'll warn you and let you choose to keep downloading or not).
If you need support with the Files, just create a ticket in the Support page explaining what kind of support you need (bugs fixes, features to add, etc). The average response time for files support is 48 hours so, be patient.
