Cancelled update, where is the downloaded file?

On my tablet which ran 3.1.4 I accepted the update, but, after the download completed (in app) I realised I had not saved my prefs in a while. Unsure if I would have to reconfigure my toolbars (as with the beta), I cancelled the update and saved my prefs.
After that Scrivener said I was up to date, when checking for updates, although I wasn’t.
So I downloaded and installed 3.1.5 through the standalone installer.
I’m fine up to this point.

But where did the in app download go?
Do I have to manually clean up the unused updater/installation file?

Thank you :slight_smile:

If you cancelled the update installer, Scrivener automatically deletes it and you do not need to do anything, Vincent. By default, the update installer is downloaded in your %TEMP% folder.
During automatic update your Preferences are preserved and there is no need to back them up. Still, it is a good practice to do it occasionally.

Thanks. :slight_smile:

Still, I’ll have a look, because I cancelled the update by ultimately denying permission. (Not via Scrivener.)

And in the end I had to retweak my toolbars just the same, but only the gaps had gone missing. Which is not so bad.

[EDIT] And by the way, @tiho_d and others, thank you for the time and energy you put into development. :+1:

You tend to have gaps between icons disappear if you open a project from Explorer after an update, but I seem to recall that that was fixed.

They were all gone ; except for a sad and lonely one in the middle.

I pulled my update from the website this morning — 10 hour ago — and it’s fine on my side.

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I had never installed the beta on my tablet. (?)

So the current prefs were from 3.1.4
When I installed the beta on my main computer, I remember that I had to re-arrange my toolbars.

[EDIT] AmberV seems to be saying (in another thread) that it is not everyone who’ll encounter that.

I neglected to say I was “wisely forced” to download the update after following the Release Notes, which advised an app uninstall if using the beta. I’d stopped having 3.1.4 and 3.1.5 both running on my machine somewhere in the middle of beta 2, uninstalling 3.1.4 at the time.
I also keep a saved .prefs file to load after an update if my toolbars have gone wonky.
