Can't open .scriv file from mac to windows.

I stuck one of my .scriv’s on a usb and put it on my windows but when I try to open it, it says ‘incompatible with this version of scrivener.’ In the earlier versions of the beta I didn’t have this problem.

One of the files inside the project that’s necessary for the project to open might be missing or altered. Make a backup of the .scriv folder if you haven’t got one already (just for safety’s sake), then

  1. In Windows Explorer, open your project’s .scriv folder, then open the Files folder
  2. Open the “version.txt” file there in a plain-text editor (e.g. Notepad)
  3. In the editor, select all, type “16” (no quotes), then save

Then try opening the project again in Scrivener.
