Chief Architect Premier or Chief Architect Interiors


I am using the Chief Architect Trial version, and encountered the following error message:

Trial Restriction: To enable file saving, please purchase the full program version."


Chief Architect's Trial software allows you to try out nearly all of the tools in the program; however, there are restrictions in place that prevent you from saving your work.

In order to save a Chief Architect file, you will need to purchase a license.
