FlexBV is a commercial expansion from the existing Open-Source OpenBoardView. This expansion brings PDF cross referencing between BoardViews and Schematics, something which has long been desired and provides an immediate boost in repair productivity.
FAQ: Can I buy and use the Windows version now, but migrate to macOS/Linux when they are released? - Yes
FlexBV is being sold on a perpetual licence model, single-seat with free upgrades for 12 months. The usage licence is similar to that which Borland Pascal/C++ used to use; it is like a book. You can take it to many places, but only one use concurrently.
Single licence cost is $79.00 USD. Currently Windows 7+ release is available. Linux and macOS will be arriving soon.
Please note: FlexBV is not supplied with any boardview files. If you require boardview files there are many resources on the internet that can supply those of which you can then view with FlexBV*1.
