Issue Details

I have the Multisim Education Edition but my students have the Student Edition and there are features and components I have that they do not have.

How do I avoid using features that are not in the Student Edition when creating the lab exercises?


When you run Multisim in simplified mode, features that are not in the Student Edition will be disabled.

To run Multisim Education Edition in simplified mode select Options » Simplified version. You will see fewer instruments, parts and some features are no longer available.
