This article applies to TypeWell V7 and higher. (If you're using Version 6, contact us for help.)

To check whether you have the latest revision of your TypeWell software, you need to be connected to the Internet. (You do not need to be signed in to your online account or the software itself.)

Open the TypeWell program and click the Help menu, then click Check for Update:

Help - Check for Update

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

If a newer revision is available, you'll be prompted to visit the update page for your particular TypeWell program (Everywhere, Transcriber, Reader, Connect, etc.).

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 be prompted to refresh your license key.

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