Questions and answers about RagTime Solo
What are the differences between RagTime Solo and the commercial version?
RagTime Solo asks the user during each startup to acknowledge that it may not be employed for commercial use. Beyond this, it does not require any authorization. RagTime Solo runs on one computer only at any given time in a local area network. Some color profiles for high end devices were left out to save on download size. Dictionaries for spell checking and hyphenation are not included. They can be bought for 15 €.
Why does RagTime give away its commercial successful software RagTime?
Home users will rarely be willing to spend $495 for a DTP package. With RagTime Solo we created a legal way to use RagTime at home. We are sure that this step benefits all RagTime users: RagTime becomes more widely known and the whole environment becomes richer. Press coverage, tips & tricks, books and training courses, RagTime experts and service providers are important especially for our commercial users.
May I give RagTime Solo to my friends?
Sure. Giving RagTime Solo to other private users is explicitly allowed by the licence conditions. Why don’t you give your friends a short introduction into RagTime?

Yes. Any documents created with RagTime Solo do work with the commercial version and vice versa.
What are the conditions to use RagTime Solo?
Simple enough: As long as you are not earning money working with RagTime, you can use RagTime Solo.
What is the arrangement for educational use?
