If at a later time, you need to edit your screen recording, right-click the recording within your Lectora title, and select Edit. Camtasia will automatically launch your project so you can begin making changes. Reproduce your video when you’re done – the video is automatically updated within your Lectora title. When you create a new animation using Flypaper, you will need to produce the animation to Flash. Drag and drop the produced SWF file directly into your title. If at a later time, you need to edit your SWF, right-click the animation within your Lectora title, and select Edit. Flypaper will automatically launch your project so you can begin making changes. Reproduce your animation when you’re done – the animation is automatically updated within your Lectora title.

Yes, you will still receive any service packs released for your version of Lectora, but you will not receive new features or enhancements.

What happens if I skip a year by not renewing one year, but then want to renew the next?

When your Lectora maintenance expires, your Lectora licenses go back to full price and you no longer receive new features and enhancements. In order to receive the best possible price and the most current version, please renew your maintenance before your expiration date.

How much is Lectora maintenance?

Renewing your Lectora maintenance contract is $555 for Lectora Publisher users and $875 for Lectora Inspire users. This is a 65% savings.

What is a Lectora Maintenance Plan?

Lectora Maintenance is an annual agreement that enables you to receive any new features and enhancements that are released each year free of charge and provides you with a highly discounted Lectora renewal fee. Maintenance must be renewed each year in order to receive new features and benefits. If your maintenance expires, you are no longer eligible for upgrades.
