Indicators name font

Post by alizol » Wed Nov 02, 2016 6:43 pm

Dear PLS professors,
I saved my SAV file as a csv file in spss 20. I have 14 indicators and all of them except one name are showed correct. one of them(Q1) as you can see in the attachment have some font problem in the name. I first thought that this was because the persian label of the indicator variable in spss.so I changed it to arial fonts an translated the label into english. It doesn't solve the problem.I AGAIN TRIED TO CHANGED THE NAME IN "CONTENTS OF FILE" WINDOW but it did not solve the problem.could you help me solve this problem?

Thanks in Advance

SmartPLS 2 does not support Persian language. Try SmartPLS 3 which "speaks" Persian.

Kind regards

SmartPLS 2.0????! Re: Indicators name font

Post by pandagr520 » Sat Mar 04, 2017 3:43 am

It seems that PLS 2.0 is not supported anymore. Several of my colleagues and I have registered smartpls 2.0, but we all did not receive any license key. in case that comments were made in the why not use 3.0, all received the same email except the comment. Seems that we have to pay to buy 3.0 if we still want to use smartPLS.
The email we received is:
Dear xxx,
My name is  Sven Wende and I noticed your comment when you registered for SmartPLS 2. You stated:

"xxxxx."

Of course we understand that not everybody can afford a full license for "SmartPLS 3 Professional" and if you are happy
with SmartPLS 2 that?s ok. But maybe you didn?t notice yet, that we provide a free "Student version" of SmartPLS 3, too, 
as well as a free 30-days-trial license for the "Professional version". Why don?t you try it out. 

I case you are a student there are chances that your university already purchased a campus license for the full "Professional version". Please
ask your local staff or administrator if a license is available for you.

Otherwise please note that we grant large discounts (50%) on the "Professional version" for academic users. Prices are thereby starting at
20.00 EUR if you purchase for a single month. Longer licensing will be rewarded with further discounts. 

Check out the price calculator on http://www.smartpls.com/purchase for more details on pricing!

Please feel free to email me with any questions or feedback either on our product or the prices.

Kind regards

The process to give you access to SmartPLS 2 is as follows:

- Visit https://www.smartpls.com/downloads

- Click on the SmartPLS link or directly use this link: https://www.smartpls.com/smartpls2

- Register and send off your details.

- You receive a confirmation email. Important: Here you need to click on the confirmation link to approve your details.

- Then you receive another email with your personal activation key and a SmartPLS 2 download link.

I just tried out this procedure and everything worked perfectly fine.

You may want to check your spam folder or talk to your email provider and ask if they deleted our follow up emails (e.g., by treating them as spam directly on the server without delivering them to you).

Best regards
Christian
