Will there be a "desktop only" version of ScreenSteps 4?
No. ScreenSteps 4 has been designed as an editor for articles stored in a hosted ScreenSteps account.
Why did we do this?
Maintaining a desktop only version of ScreenSteps along with one that integrated with our cloud service proved to be too difficult and really slowed down our ability to improve both products. ScreenSteps 4 focuses strongly on collaboration. For collaboration we needed the cloud backend.
What if I don't want to pay for a monthly subscription?
We know that we have many users of ScreenSteps that don't need what the online version offers and prefer a one-time purchase to a monthly or yearly subscription. Clarify 2 is the product that addresses those needs.
Going forward ScreenSteps will be for teams that need to collaborate and will follow a subscription model. Clarify will be for individuals who prefer one-off purchases and who don't need the collaboration features of ScreenSteps.
If you currently use ScreenSteps Desktop Pro, Standard or Workgroup 2.9 your software will continue to work. But you won't be receiving future feature enhancements. If you would like to upgrade to the online version of ScreenSteps please contact us and we can discuss your upgrade options depending on your needs.
