Q: When I try to use PDF Studio Pro, I receive a message saying “The subscription for this license has ended and PDF Studio is now in demo mode. If you know this license has been renewed, go to Help->License Information to reactivate your key. Otherwise contact your administrator to check for a new version or inquire about renewing this license.” Is PDF Studio no longer available for purchase through the Duke’s University’s Office of Information Technology (OIT)?

A: This year, the OIT department at Duke University has opted not to renew their volume subscription license for PDF Studio.

The good news is that you can continue using PDF Studio by purchasing a license directly from Qoppa Software at 50% discount. The coupon code ACADEMIA can be used for students, faculty and staff at Duke University to purchase PDF Studio 2019 Pro (the edition you’ve been using) for only $64.50 or PDF Studio Standard 2019 for only $44.50.

This is a one-time payment for an eternal license, not a yearly subscription, and it includes support. Yearly upgrades to new versions are optional and are discounted by 60% compared to new purchases, topped by the 50% academic discount which also applies to updates.
