Frequently asked questions
Q: How is this Viewer licensed? A: This beta version for Mac and Linux is licensed the same way as Windows Viewer i.e. it requires a license key. The same license key can be used for all platforms.
Q: Can I import my existing address book from Viewer for Windows to Viewer for Mac or Linux? A: Yes. Simply use the Address Book Manager and specify the path to your address book XML file. Viewer for Windows and Viewer for Mac/Linux use the same address book format.
Q: Can I use RU Server address book sync with Mac/Linux Viewer? A: Yes, you can. When adding an address book in Mac/Linux Viewer you have an option to choose a remote (synchronized) address book and add your RU Server address.
