Offline Use

(1) Sometimes I need to use SmartPLS 3 without internet connection. This is not possible at present.
Could you please offer this option?

(2) SmartPLS always starts in fullscreen mode. Could you disable this feature? Thank you so much.

Kind regards

> (1): This is only the case for the SmartPLS Professional license that we provide for free right now. Offline use will be possible with Pro Licenses that we will sell in the near future. For SmartPLS Student offline use should already be working today.

> (2): I think you can solve this by creating your own shortcut to the SmartPLS.exe file.

SmartPLS Student does not run offline. Try Professional (it's free at the moment); just press the purchase button and follow instructions.

To be precise. SmartPLS Student does work offline but you need to be online once when you enter your email address in the software. The free early-bird license for SmartPLS Pro requires that you are online.
