Automatic updates

By default, SoftMaker Office 2018 for Windows keeps itself up-to-date by automatically downloading service packs from our servers.

If you have not installed the automatic update tool or simply want to know if your version of SoftMaker Office is current, you can also check for updates manually.

Start one of its applications, click on the "?" icon in the ribbon and choose the command Check for updates. If you are running SoftMaker Office in classic mode with menus, choose the command Help > Check for updates.
