Help! Scrivener has vanished

I was using Scrivener last night, but when I went to open it again just now it seems to have vanished. My applications folder contains an alias of Scrivener but that’s all.

If I download the trial version and re-enter my registration details, I imagine this would solve the problem. But how can I keep it from happening again?

Try checking out the installation tutorial video on the videos page:

Sounds to me as though you didn’t install properly, but maybe just ran it from the DMG - the above should get you going again.

All the best,

Thanks for the very quick reply – you were right, that’s exactly what I was doing wrong!
