About the free trial


  1. The free trial is for evaluation purposes only. It is limited to 3 consecutive days. It cannot be extended. It cannot be run more than once on the same computer.

  2. Once the software is installed, you will see a message as you open Word asking if you are ready to start the free trial. When you are ready, say YES.

  3. Files created with Elements Pro during the free trial will contain Evaluation watermarks and the Great Circle Learning logo and copyright, and cannot be used for production purposes.

  4. You will be able to see, but not use, the Customization functionality that allows you to personalize the software.

  5. Elements Pro documents are Word documents. However, the only way to open them while in free trial mode is by using the Open button on the Elements ribbon on the computer where the free trial is running.

  6. While in free trial mode, do not use Elements Pro to create documents you will need for business purposes because they will not be available for use after the free trial period expires.

  7. While in free trial mode, do not use Elements Pro to open, attach to, or work in files created by licensed users because this will subject those important files to all of the free trial limitations and make them no longer usable as production files.
