Have you installed the latest software updates, including new features, tweaks, and bug fixes for TypeWell Version 7? (If you're using Version 6, click here instead.)

With TypeWell V7, it's easy to see whether you have the latest software update. To do this, you need to have Internet access so the TypeWell program on your computer can communicate with the server online. (You do not need to be signed into your online account.)

While your computer is online, open the TypeWell program and click Check for Update under the Help menu:

The TypeWell program on your computer will check for the current revision available on our website. If you already have that revision, you'll see a confirmation message:

information window with the message "you have the newest revision"

If a newer revision is available, you'll be prompted to visit the update page for your particular TypeWell program. (Each TypeWell program — e.g. Everywhere, Transcriber, Reader, etc. — has its own release schedule and update page.)

message box indicating an update is available

Click Yes, then follow the instructions on the update page to download the latest software update. When you click on the download link, you should see the installation file in your Web browser's download panel.

Once the file is finished downloading, click on it to start the installation process. (NOTE: if your browser does not automatically display downloaded files, you should be able to locate the file in your default download folder, typically a folder called "Downloads".)

click on the downloaded file to start installation

Click Yes if you're prompted with a User Account Control message. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation. That's all there is to it!

When you update TypeWell this way, your PAL and your linking configurations (if applicable) will not be disturbed. And in most cases, you won't even be prompted to refresh your license key.

If you have multiple TypeWell programs installed on one computer, use the Check for Update feature in each different program.
