FAQ / How do I activate the eMarking Assistant license?

If you have not already done so you should install the 30 day trial of eMarking Assistant (see Installing eMarking Assistant in the FAQs)

You can check the status of the eMarking Assistant license (has it been installed and if so when? has it been activated and if so when? when will the status change? is it a primary or a secondary license? what is the version number? etc) on your computer by doing the following:

  1. Open any Word document
  2. Show the “eMarking Assistant toolbar” by pressing ALT F8 or either:
    1. Word 2003 or earlier: View menu > Toolbars Show eMarking Assistant toolbar
    2. Word 2007 or later: Add-ins tab > Show eMarking Assistant toolbar
  3. Use the “Help” tab on the eMarking Assistant toolbar and click the “Computer ID, license & buy” button to show the “Help and license information” window. The status will then be shown in the status window.
