    Why my existing license doesn't work? "Invalid serial number"

    I did use FineReader PRO until now, because there I could enter meta information to my PDF files, like title, subject, keywords before saving scanned recognised documents as PDF.
    Seems like the latest Update of Mac OS X now screwed the graphical presentation of FineReader PRO and I have to switch to FineReader PDF for Mac.
    Unfortunately this says the *.frdoc files from FineReader PRO are "corrupted", so no chance to migrate data, still no chance to enter metadata like in the former version of Finereader.
    No response to the feature request to build in the ability to edit PDF meta information.
    For me FineReader PDF only got worse nothing better than FineReader PRO and it hasn't changed the last years, since I bought FineReader PDF not using it until now, where I am forced to because of the end of life policy and because FineReader PRO is simply not working any more.
    Disappointed really. Sorry.
