Already used the mini-TOCs to replace a lot of previously manually maintained lists - many thanks. And PDF page rotation in several docs. Lovely work.

I'm sure I'll find use for the other new functions soon.

Will you continue supporting version 7? Because when the application checks updates, it downloads version 8, to which we have no licenses. Or we can stop checking the updates?

Version 7 is no longer under active development, but is still supported, of course. You can always check the current version and download the installer on this page:

I'm not able to find the download for PP 4.0.3. The Premium Pack 4-0-3 page sends me to the H+M downloads and I don't find PP4 there...

There is no download page for this. As explained in every update notification, you already have the download link and your installation credentials in the mail you received when purchased. If you have lost this please contact support AT ec-software.com (replace the AT with @) for a copy. 8)
