About the trial version
The trial version allows you access
to all the powerful modelling and data analysis features of the
toolbar for 90 days from when you first use it. Thereafter, just
the basic editing features remain available.
To continue accessing all the features
of the toolbar you need to purchase a passcode - see the menu on
the left for a link to instructions on this.
How to download and install a trial
version of the ImagineIT Toolbar
- Windows computers: right-click the link
and choose to 'save target' to a convenient location on your hard
Macintosh computers: option-click the
link and download to your download folder:
Download ImagineI for Macintosh (not available
Go to the Tools menu, select Macros and then
Security . . .
- Set the macro security level to either Medium
or Low (but not High as this will prevent the toolbar working
because the toolbar works by running small visual basic programmes
If you choose Medium you will be asked whether you want to
enable or disable macros each time you use the toolbar for the
first time after starting Excel. You need to click Enable.
Go to the File menu, navigate to the
ImagineIT file that you have just downloaded to
your hard disc. Then double-click the file to open it.
The ImagineIT Toolbar should now be visible
at the top of the screen looking like this (but as one continuous
toolbar rather than two):
- Every time you restart Excel from now on the
ImagineIT Toolbar will reappear at the top of the screen.
(Should you ever want to stop it reappearing, go to the View
menu in Excel, choose Toolbars, and then remove the
tick next to ImagineIT. To cause the toolbar
to reappear, replace this tick. To delete the toolbar permanently,
go to the Options menu in Excel, choose Customize
. . , select the Toolbars tab and then ImagineIT
and finally press the Delete button, followed by Close.
To remove the ImagineIT programme as well as the toolbar attached
to it, find the ImagineIT file that you downloaded
originally and delete it.)
- NOTE You can make the toolbar 'free-floating'
by dragging the vertical bar at the extreme left hand edge downards
and inwards and then resizing it to a convenient shape by dragging
the edges. This is particularly useful when using a screen resolution
of 800x600 for which the toolbar is too long to fit.
If you just want to switch the ImagineIT
Toolbar off except for the formatting options, click this button
(The graph buttons then just change the format of an existing
graph and cannot be used to create new graphs.) To switch the
full toolbar on again click the same button. The shortened toolbar
looks like this:
- If your copy of the ImagineIT Toolbar
has this key button
at the right hand end, it is a time-limited copy. At the end of
the free time (or before) you will have to click this button and
enter a passcode in order to continue using the toolbar. (The
formatting buttons will, however, still work without the passcode.)
The passcode is supplied when you buy the toolbar.
