What is a plugin?
A plugin, which is the format of Pro Quick Draw, means it is an added application that works in conjunction with a software - a third part application. Pro Quick Draw is not a standalone product, it requires Microsoft Visio and/or PowerPoint. Once the plugin is installed on your PC, it will be visible upon opening Visio or PowerPoint on the top toolbar. All the original features of these programs will not be affected or compromised and you can toggle the plugin off when you're not using it.

How do I receive a trial?

You may download the trial on as many computers as you would like to give your colleagues a chance to try it. After 15 days, the plugin will be inactive and ask for licensing information.
How does the licensing work?
Each team will have one designated person to set up the licensing (typically the IT director, DFO, etc) and they will desingate their email address for the username. One team shares one username and password for multiple licenses. Since coaches jobs can interchange, it is best for the e-mail address to be associated with the IT director or DFO. Please reach out to us to learn more about our packages and number of licenses we offer.
How do I receive software updates?

Will resized images be uniform in size, or is there a need for a base template for each individual drawing in order to ensure uniformity?
Resizing occurs automatically along with centering within the space designated in your template box. This is one of the best features of Pro Quick Draw because it does not distort your drawing. The appearance is clean and the resizing occurs depending on the size of your template layout.
Can you customize page layouts?
Absolutely! See the Video Tutorials for 'Template Editor'. You are able to completely customize the templates in any way that your team prefers. The process is easy to learn and you are able to take a current template that you may be using and convert it to a customized template for you to use for your entire season.
How does the program decipher the difference between 'play name' and the drawing itself?
This comes down to how you choose to build your template design and layout of your plays. Some teams use a text box to occupy the "Play Name" in a rectangle box on their template. In this case, the Template Editor allows you to identify a text box area to pull from. (See 'Template Editor' tutorial).
Does a 'blank play' image appear on a printed copy?
Do you press 'update' to override a 'blank play' or does the 'add' feature override?
'Update' is often used when most coaches are manipulating edits. If you have a 'Blank Play' and then put a drawing in that space,
I am having a problem with adding a play to my template. Is it the drawing or the template?
If your template accepts another drawing without a problem, then the issue is not the template. If this happens, I would take a drawing you know is working in that template and recreate the drawing that is giving you trouble.
How many licenses does a team need?
Typically a team will utilize this set up:

Can I take the plugin with me to my next team?
Pro Quick Draw Licenses are purchased by the team, therefore the plugin stays with the organization.
