This article will help you find items that you have purchased from within the product but can’t find, didn’t download, or didn’t install.

One - check the item in My Library
Two - restore your purchases
Three - find your email confirmation
Four - check the special cases
Before you start - Please ensure that you have received a confirmation email or know what your reference number is after your purchase, this is important to have when troubleshooting this issue. This email could contain important serial numbers and download links. Don’t forget to check your Spam folder and other sections where emails might get filtered into.

My Library is found in the Get More section of the Welcome screen. Click on Get More and you should see My Library on the right side of the screen. My Library will be where all of your in product purchase will be shown.
Click on the item that you are looking for, and make sure you have clicked on the install button. This will trigger your purchase to download and install. Follow the instructions on the items detail page for more information on where the item is installed and where to find it in your product. Some items require a few extra steps to start using it properly.
NOTE - There is no issue reinstalling an item more than once. If the file is already there it will either replace it, update it, or notify you that it’s already in place.

This is usually fixed by going through the restore purchases workflow.

- This will start the process of restoring your purchases. As each item gets restored, you will see a green checkmark appear beside the item name.
- Please note: In some cases, the download and installation will happen automatically. In other cases, you may need to go to My Library and click the install button for each item. (see section 1 above)
- Click the Close button. If you need to run this again because not all of the items have been restored, just start again at Step 1 above.
- Please note: You may have to restart your application to see your purchased items.
