Actually, the current version of Scrivener is 3.2.2–the test build to which @Login refers was released yesterday (the 15th.) If you use the Mac App Store version, the update probably hasn’t made it through to the Mac App Store yet, but you can download the direct sales version and use it in trial mode until the App Store catches up.
Thank you! I downloaded the new version and it seems to be working.
I wasn’t asked for a product key or anything, so it guess that means I am using the direct sale version? Sorry, wasn’t sure whether I am, how can I find out for sure?
It asked me whether to keep the old version and I thought it might be better to, so now I have a separate Icon with a “2” in my dock. So should I just keep the old version or can I delete without problems?
I just updated to the latest Scrivener (direct sale via the website) and it no longer crashes on Big Sur 11.1 – thank you! I was worried productivity would be zero today after Scrivener crashed 10 times in a row, so I was really happy to see the update was already available.
No problem. As to finding out where you bought Scrivener:
If you pull down the Scrivener menu and there’s a menu item that says “Deactivate license” you have a direct purchase copy with an active license. You can delete the old copy from the Applications folder.
If you pull down the Help menu and find a menu item that says “Purchase Scrivener…” you have a direct purchase copy without a license. What you do next depends on whether you bought it on the Mac App Store or direct from Literature & Latte.
[*]Open the Mac App Store and click on your name at the bottom of the left-hand sidebar. A list of your purchased apps will display. If Scrivener is in that list, you bought from the App Store. Delete both your old Scrivener copies and download from the App Store.
Otherwise, you bought direct, and you’ll need to find your old license key and enter it. If you can’t find it, contact Sales AT literatureandlatte DOT com. When you’ve entered your license and you at last have a Scrivener menu item that says “Deactivate license” you may delete your old copy.
