Stylus Studio Product Support FAQ

How do I get technical support for Stylus Studio?

Log in to the Stylus Studio Developer Network (SSDN), a forum monitored by engineers on the Stylus Studio development team. SSDN is an excellent resource for asking questions, sharing Stylus Studio tips with other users in the Stylus Studio community, and researching topics (from the general to the arcane) in our technical support archives. Current conferences include:

You can access SSDN by clicking Help > Technical Support on the Stylus Studio menu. You can also visit the support center.

Are other service plans available?

We currently offer technical support though SSDN only. Our goal is to respond to all postings within one business day.

How do I upgrade to the latest Stylus Studio release?

Upgrade licenses are only required to migrate from one major release to the next (from Release 5.x to Release 2006, for example). When you are ready to migrate, just purchase the major release upgrade license. You can do this by emailing

Point release upgrades (from Release 6.0 to 6.1, for example) are provided free. You can easily check on the availability of upgrades to your current version of Stylus Studio by clicking Help > Check for Latest Version on the Stylus Studio menu.
