It seems just so. I was also very surprised because, up to now, this had never been a problem.
Just to clarify: It is perfectly clear to me that I have to provide email adress and credit card details to paypal. I have no problem with that.
But paypal was (at least yesterday) definitely trying to force me to have an account and I HAVE a problem with that. (I had an account once and will NEVER have one again).

> What process do you believe was forcing you to pay?

I'm not sure I understand your question. I was referring to the download page which says that you either have to pay at least 1$, download the source or use the free demo version that will not save

Maybe it's just my bad english, sorry.

Actually I DO want to pay, otherwise why should I even worry about PayPal or anything?
I find this remark unnecessarily offensive and rude. I had a problem with PayPal. OK, maybe I am a bit stupid and, of course, my english is far from perfect but I really, really tried (and eventually even succeeded) in paying for a3 like I have for a2.

Anyway, thanks for your answer and the great software and so on.
