I just purchased the PRO version and to my dismay, I do not see a way to enable the Family Library option like in this picture https://photos.app.goo.gl/nhQm8ZinS3Df0TW02
SInce I have two phones and a couple of tablets does this mean that I have to buy four copies of the PRO version.  I really hope not.

Thanks for your help.

not that I am aware of.  Be sure each family member has accepted the invitation to the gallery play family. Also verify Macrodroid is listed in the family application list.   Mine works fine for 5 devices and family members

Thanks for the reply Tom.  I am still puzzled.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/ozxmC39CFFx0kXZK2 The screenshot from my own phone does not show Macrodroid as a Family app.  All the devices I have tried this on are on the same Google Play account as was the example I gave yesterday.  I tried my wife's phone which has a different account on Google Play and Macrodroid is not showing up in the Family Library.  Again, ES File Explorer Pro is shown on both my wife's phone and mine as part of Family Library.

The Macrodroid page does not have the Family Library enable switch on my Google Play.  Now, I live in the US so maybe Family Library never got enabled over here.  Beats me as I'm pretty sure I did everything right and all my other Family Library eligible apps show up just fine.

It's a puzzle.

I had occasion I have had apps I knew I purchased via Purchased Applications  app.   did not show up in Family collection.  I just accepted to repurchase and the were installed without the purchase verification.   I didn't get charged again.   This also asked me if I wanted to add it to try family list.   I think Google is still working on the family section.

All is now well.  I installed Macrodroid on one of my Nexus 7 rooted tablets using the same Google Play account.  It installed the standard version and when I clicked on the Go Pro link it asked me to reboot to enable Pro.  I did so and it worked.  I shall have to buy a copy for my wife's phone since this seems to require the same account  but that's okay.  This is not quite Family Library but close enough.

Thank you for your patience and help.
