Trial Model Snapshot

If you do not use the trial tutorial model, PlaceMaker will run in preview mode when using a free trial license.  The intent of preview mode is to allow you to inspect the OpenStreetMap data for the locations that you are interested in.  It is not possible to save or modify the objects that are imported in preview mode.  The full license allows you to save, and modify all objects (buildings, roads, paths, water, etc.) that PlaceMaker creates.
