Long-time customer Interior Architects installed the latest release of Ideate Software applications, and Clinton Johnston, Information Technology Manager, noticed a difference in the installation process. 

Here’s the conversation he had with Jan Sako from our customer service team:

In addition to network licensing improvements, and as a part of our effort to streamline future software installations, the May 2018 release contains many improvements. It allows standalone licensed customers to use a completely new license code that activates on multiple versions of Revit. This new license code will work for all product year versions between 2016-2019, and only needs to be used once per PC.

We always appreciate hearing from our customers. If you have thoughts on changes we can make to enhance our applications or streamline your Revit workflows, please contact us at
