I cannot find the educators discount on the purchase page?

Blogger Adam BehringerMarch 15, 2011 7:50 PM

Deb, we have information about education licenses on this page: http://www.beedocs.com/sitelicenses/

Many thanks! I was afraid it had disappeared with today's 'new and improved' beedocs.

Is there an upgrade? When I launch it it says I need to upgrade my licenses. Does that mean buy a new one?

Blogger Adam BehringerMarch 16, 2011 7:34 AM


Yes, existing customers can upgrade a license for v3 for $25 USD. To do so, first download the new version from our website, then open the Timeline 3D > Registration panel and click the upgrade button.

In your blog post, you say if you purchased a Timeline 3D license in 2011, watch your inbox this week for a free upgrade.

It is now April 26, 2011, and the post went out on March 15, 2011. I have not received an email about a free upgrade.

Can you help?

Blogger Adam BehringerApril 26, 2011 9:31 AM


Yes, we sent all the free upgrade codes for 2011 customers. If you did not receive it, the e-mail address we have on record may not be valid or it may have gone to your spam folder.

Please send me an e-mail (adam@beedocs.com) and I will get your new code to you right away. Thanks!

is it now possible to make a dynamic end date in time periods

for example
a project has started 2 years ago and has not ended yet
so the end date could be set to "today + 1 day "
so every time i check the timeline the endate is always tomorrow.

PVC - No it is not possible to dynamically set the dates in this fashion unless you wrote your own Applescripts to do so.

Why not on Mac App Store?

Lex, we are trying to learn from the experiences of other developers first.

Just bought the software yesterday and already put together a timeline for use in an important corporate communication. One thing I was hoping to find but couldn't is the ability to set individual transition times on an event by event basis. i get that I can control that when exporting to Quicktime, but that sets to same transition time for all slides equally. Some of my events require more explanation than others, so to be able to show one event on screen for 45 seconds and the next for 15 would be magic.

Otherwise, the best $ I've spent on any program in a long time.

Keep up the great work.

Hi Steve,

Elise here. We recommend doing your presentation live in real-time so that you can go at your own pace and linger on events for as long as you would like.

Exporting to Keynote also allows you to move through your presentation at your own pace. You can convert your Keynote presentation to PowerPoint if that is a better format for you.

You can read more about exporting to Keynote here:


If you would like further information, send me an email at elise@beedocs.com.

It took me a while to find this page with the in-thread instructions to upgrade from v2 to v3.

This information would be very helpful were it available in the Beedocs shop (at least a link).
