App Store

Hello, I purchased Scrivener from the Mac App store from my laptop. I then went to my iMac desktop but Scrivener did not appear on my purchased apps like all the others. I’m I supposed to buy it again if I want it on my desktop also?



No, you don’t need to buy it again. I’m not sure why it didn’t appear there, but this has nothing to do with Scrivener and must be the App Store temporarily playing up. Try giving it a while, or log out and back in again perhaps. All apps on the App Store work in the same way, and the App Store is responsible for showing applications in the “Purchased” section. If it still doesn’t appear, you may need to drop the App Store support team a line, as I’m afraid we have no control over any of that side of things. My guess is that it will turn up there shortly though. I always find that I don’t get receipts from the App Store until a day later, so it may be that apps don’t appear in the “Purchased” section of the store for a day either.

Thanks for buying!

All the best,

Thought so. Thanks for the prompt response.
