Vectorworks Subscriptions are now standard from 1st January 2023, you may have questions?

Here are some answers to the frequently asked questions about what happens when these changes come in.

Will I lose my perpetual licence?

No, absolutely not. Your perpetual license will continue to remain yours (and will continue to work after January 1, 2023) as long as your operating system supports that version. We also highly recommend that you maintain a Service Select membership which can provide you with additional benefits including keeping your perpetual license up to date. If you would like to learn more please email or call us.

Do the Vectorworks Subscription products offer the same tools and functionality?

All subscription products are the same products that you would use with a perpetual license. In the future however Vectorworks plan on enhancing their services and benefits for subscribers, offering more value for your money.

From September all the benefits of Vectorworks Service Select including cloud storage, additional libraries and training will be available to all subscribers.

Can I convert my perpetual licence to a subscription licence, or subscription to perpetual?

Subscription licenses are the new alternative to perpetual licensing. If you currently own a perpetual license but would like to switch to a subscription license (starting January 1, 2023) we will be able to provide a transition option. This allows you to convert your perpetual license to an annual subscription. We believe that this will be at a preferential cost for perpetual license owners.

Pricing for Vectorworks subscription licenses remains the same, providing a more affordable options for designers. If you have already invested in a perpetual license and you are concerned about the annual cost of subscription in order to keep up with the latest version, by adding a Service Select membership to your current license you will have all these benefits but at a lower price than an annual subscription.

What are the benefits of Subscription Licensing?

Vectorworks Subscriptions can be purchased on a monthly or annual basis, allowing you to choose what option will best suit you. For example, if you are a designer and use the software infrequently, a monthly subscription will allow you to start and stop as needed.

This means that a lower investment is needed to begin your journey with Vectorworks. You can also increase or decrease the number of seats you pay for in line with the needs of your business.

When you compare the cost of subscriptions over three years, an annual subscription will cost you less than the previous perpetual licenses and Vectorworks Service Select at list price.

Monthly subscriptions are perfect for short-term needs, such as special projects or temporary staff.

​Your monthly subscription will be automatically renewed each month, but you have the flexibility to cancel up to four days before your renewal date to avoid the charges for the next billing cycle.


Yearly subscriptions are a cost-effective way to maintain a licence for one full year.

You will be billed once, and your yearly subscription will remain active for 12 months. And, with a yearly subscription, you’ll pay for 10 months and get two month’s cost free versus a monthly subscription.

​Your yearly subscription will automatically renew at the end of your one-year subscription term and you can cancel up to four days before your renewal date to avoid the charges on your next billing cycle.
