Licenses vs Capabilities Matrix

iGrafx provides two methods for defining user licenses and capabilities:

Customers upgrading to 17.2 can continue to use the User Extension Method if preferred.

To view your User License(s)

  1. Login to the iGrafx Platform
  2. Click your name in upper right corner of the Platform display
  3. Select the My Profile option
  4. In the right frame, choose the USER INFO tab
  5. See the License Assignment (User Licenses) or License Assignment (User Extensions) section

If your heading says License Assignment (User Extensions) then your capabilities are defined by the User Extension Method.

If you have multiple User Licenses assigned to you then you are granted the maximum, licensed capabilities.
