  • Interests:Accordance 12.3.3 will be really GREAT, I have the license and used 12.x during 2018 on the desktop but on laptops I've been sticking mainly to 11.2.5 instead (which is the version number I've used the least so far at this moment March 5. 2019) - I have 11 now on the on one laptop, the new one, as it uses slightly less battery and can load all my purchases. 11.x had a great Info Pane, it was possible to choose what parts of Collections to download, great settings menus for text preferences, good library sorting and Research. Current Accordance spend about $125 a Month, used to be over twice as high during the End of Summer, Autumn &Winter 2018/2019
