Here’s a call to all software vendors: if you send a registration code or license key that I can copy out of an email, give me a field into which I can paste it.
Look at the above window. They sent me a nice email from which I can copy the registration code, but thanks to their UI, I can’t paste it. They’re trying to be helpful by breaking up the code into segments, but everyone is going to try and paste it in here, so it ends up being difficult.
To add insult to injury, the email they sent says this:
The values must match EXACTLY, we suggest you copy and then paste each value from the email to the registration form to avoid any problems.
Well, gee, if I could, I would.
Either (1) don’t segment the box, or (2) give me a button that will take the contents of the clipboard, cut it up, and put each segment in each little box automatically.
(Incidentally, the situation I describe above is the only thing that mars some otherwise brilliant software.)
