Frequently Asked Questions
The answers to your questions
Do I need to create an account if I have a previous version of an app?
YES, users of xPlan or xLine should create a new account. Former ADNX accounts are not supported.
How to enable the dark mode?
The dark mode is only available to registered users. Go to Preferences of your account and enable it.
First you need to go to Apple preferences and select the dark mode in general section. Then, quit and relaunch the app to enable the full dark mode.
Do you resell user data?
Nope, like Apple, we deeply care about privacy and security. We are very picky on these topics and we will never do anything wrong for users. Sadly, a lot of companies are doing a sneaky business with the data of users and it's wrong. You can trust us on this topic.
can I open a Microsoft Project file?
YES but you need to export a project to Microsoft XML format as Microsoft default format is not open to developers. You can import projects only in the Mac version from the Import menu (90% of documents are compatible. It's not 100% because Microsoft do not even respect XML standard conventions)
