Does anyone know what has happened to this program? I have some older files that I need to view (no problem because the program reverted to read only) and edit (cannot). I purchased a license years ago (2014 I think) and remember asking the developer about what would happen if the program or his interest died? Don’t remember the answer, but it is virtually non-functional now.

The licensing scheme was very confusing back then. I looked at the website which is still up, and it is just as confusing now. In desperation, I tried both making a purchase and renewing my license. It cannot be done.

Hi Jon,

If you want to share a file, perhaps I can come up with a convert tool

Jon, are you talking about Silva Elm’s Sense Editor (http://www.silvaelm.com) or the editor made by Elastic Co (http://www.elastic.co/guide/en/sense/current/index.html)?

The former.

That is very kind of you Pierre. Thank you.

I have to take a closer look at the read only file. It should contain some research which I am not allowed to share. If so, then the answer is unfortunately no.

I am not sure what format Sense used. Perhaps it was proprietary. For you to create a tool would satisfy a market of maybe one. I found Sense useful for a research paper I wrote under a grant, but stopped using it. As a result, I have just one Sense document. Although interesting to use, I found other tools (InfoQube) far more suitable and versatile. Still, it would be nice to be able to poke around in Sense to explore. I might have missed something.
