This tutorial explains how to enter the registration password into Embird, so that it stops to expire and turns from evaluation (demo) version into full version. It also explains how to enter the registration numbers for plug-ins (Alphabets, Font Engine, Cross Stitch, Digitizing Studio, Sfumato Stitch, Iconizer). It is supposed that you already have received an e-mail from us, with text form of the password. The following steps explain what to do with this password.
Note: Another way of inserting passwords into Embird is to use the PASSWORD.KLC file attached to the e-mail which you receive from us after purchasing Embird registration - this is explained in Inserting Registration Password from PASSWORD.KLC file tutorial.
Inserting Main Embird Password from E-mail
1 - Run your e-mail software (Microsoft Outlook, Netscape Communicator, etc.) and open the e-mail with passwords which you have received from us after paying for Embird registration at http://www.embird.net/sw/embird/register.htm. Typically, you would receive two e-mails, containing different forms of password. Choose the e-mail without attachment, containing the text form of the password (Picture No. 1).

2 - Highlight the registration password and depress CTRL and C keys simultaneously to copy the selected text (password) into clipboard. If you don't know how to copy the text into the clipboard, please read the following: Put the mouse at the beginning of password and click the left mouse button, holding it down while you drag over the password. At the end of password, let go of the mouse button. Password should be highlighted. (If you goof, click the mouse button once to unhighlight, then start over.) While it is highlighted, hold down the Ctrl key and hit the letter "c". This copies the password to an invisible clipboard.
3 - Run Embird and select "Help -> Registration" command from the main menu (Picture No.2).
