I have Scrivener 188.8.131.52 running on my Imac which has MacOS 10.13.3. I wish to make a copy of my scriv file onto a thumb drive and take from Imac to Macbook pro. The MBP is running OSX 10.9.5. (I trust I have got these names right, for some reason Apple changed the name.)
My internet is crappy, so I need to use a USB drive to pass the scriv file back and forth. I will use only one machine at a time.
OK here are a few questions which may seem trivial, but here they go:
My version of Scrivener on the Macbook is an old “try out” copy. I tried to update it there, but was required to show a password, which I never got, for some reason. All I found on my emails were a series of questions I asked several years ago about why I never got a serial number. What to do?
Idea: Buy TWO copies of Scrivener and install one on each machine.
Or buy a new version of Scrivener for the Imac and bring it up on the Macbook as well. This would be cheaper.
But what about the two different versions of MacOS??? If that’s an issue, I can visit Apple and get them to update the MacOS on the MBP. (I tried but there’s a glitch.)
OK, suppose we have to identical versions of Scrivener running on the two machines. What is the exact Scrivener protocol to update the scriv file between the two machines? Any gotchas?
Thanks in advance and I appreciate the guidance.
