Also use the last box to create new insertion commands that are controlled in the same fashion. We advise you to watch the 'customize' chapter of the help video for a detailed explanation.

2DED-EACCOUNT

Start the account dialog box. Buttons for 1 month or 1 year take you to our online store for purchase. A 25 digit key is immediately issued and emailed to you.
