Tried to Upgrade to V4 Old License No Longer Valid


I kept getting an upgrade notice. So, I finally thought, “Okay, let’s upgrade.” I did and guess what? My license is no longer valid for version 4 and now it wants me to pay $80 for a new license.

So, guess what happened? I uninstalled Sublime completely.

I like your software, but will not pay for another license just to use V4.

You do know there are very good code editors out there for free. I just installed one. Guess which one it was?

Sorry, but you lost me.

:metal: VS Code if I have to choose another editor :metal:



My case was the opposite. I uninstalled VSC and bought a new ST license.



Could have been Atom or lite-xl. Maybe one of the newer Vims or an EMACs?

I quite like “micro” if all I have is a terminal.

But I’ve found nothing as well rounded as ST if I want to actually get things done. It’s an inconsequential price for it’s value to my workflow.
