Hopefully all of you v9 customers will now have got your free update to the latest version (v9.5xx) which includes a nice enhancement for accessing the free clipart, as and when you need it. As Ron’s screen grab shows, some of the clipart packs are quite beefy downloads, which is why we don’t include them in the core product installer by default. The process described above is still available for those who want it (in case your product installation is not on a PC with internet access, for example) but for most of us, thumbnails of the free clipart collections are now shown immediately after installation but are actually downloaded only when they are first used (you can also right click and select download at anytime on an individual clipart piece, or for a whole category in the Library Folders section of the clipart tab).
I hope that this makes the whole process a lot more intuitive right from the outset.
PS. Full disclosure: I work at Vectric, in case that was not clear!
