We have created the limited mode to prevent a situation where you are unable to access your data because you do not have a license. When you run in limited mode, a lot of the tools in the Workbench are not available, but you still have access to your data
(also when stored in a CLC Bioinformatics Database
When running in limited mode, the functionality is equivalent to the CLC Sequence Viewer
(see Comparison of Workbenches
To get out of the limited mode and run the Workbench normally, restart the Workbench. When you restart the Workbench will try to find a proper license and if it does, it will start up normally. If it can't find a license, you will again have the option of running in limited mode.
