ribbon bar, HS6 license

Hi and thank you for reading my post!
I am interested in buying HyperSnap, but there are a few issues I would like to figure out first.
--HS7-8: I am not a fan of ribbon and the blurred "cleartype" fonts. Is there a way to turn this all off and return to the previous look with a regular customizable toolbar?
--It does not seem like the Customize/Toolbars/Main Bar works in v8.16 (it works in v 8.15) or does it?
--Can I still purchase a license for HyperSnap 6?
Many thanks in advance for your kind help!
:)
Karel

    I tried to strikethrough all the text in my post, but this editor works strangely as only the bottom two lines show any difference.
    Pls, disregard my original questions.

    Strange, I thought I replied to this post before, but can't find my previous reply... If you bought HyperSnap 8 license and still want HyperSnap 6 license, just let me know by email, and I'll send it extra, for free.
    As for the old menu-toolbar interface in HyperSnap 8, it is still present, and can be selected under the Settings ribbon tab. However the program is then very slow to start, due to some changes Microsoft made in Windows system. Also some functions from the ribbon interface are not present in the old menu-toolbars. I really consider that old interface depreciated and considered many times removing it completely. For now it remains for hard core old-timers who hate the ribbon.
     
    Also, many people think that the ribbon takes more screen space than menus and toolbars. Actually the contrary is true. The ribbon can be minimized with the [^] button at top-right, then then you use it like a menu - click on the tab - the ribbon appears, except that instead of a linear menu list you have a 2D layout of functions... Plus some check-boxes and selectors are there too, instead of forcing you to pop-up another dialog box to change such setting. I don't know why you see blurry font there, maybe it has something to do with the screen resolution settings on your computer. I see a perfectly sharp text there...
