How do I get Scrivener 2???

I’ve been ‘checking for updates’ every hour for the last week and it’s beyond October 25 and it still says 1.54 is the newest release! And then I look on the boards and see that some people are actually USING Scrivener 2!! Help!!! I’m so jealous I want to cry/hang myself. Please tell me how to get it!

The trial is there and good until Dec 7. Have fun. :slight_smile:

Enjoy :slight_smile:


PS: It’s always worth checking out the blog for links to things like this.

Thanks! I have been scouring the blog hourly as well. I couldn’t find the link. Maybe I’m thick, but… Cheers! It’s beautiful. I want to hug it. Is that sad? xx

No, it’s not sad - it cheers me up no end after answering a billion, “Yeah, it’s nice and all that, but why doesn’t it do X?” e-mails. :slight_smile:

Nothing else comes close. Only… when it’s lying there, in the dark, on the pillow next to me, late at night, and I tell it all my secret dreams and hidden desires… why doesn’t it tell me I’m as special to it as it is to me? I understand it has many other users. But sometimes I like to think – I know it’s crazy – that maybe I’m its favourite user, or at least that I’m just a little bit different from all the others… It’s just a dream, that’s all. A boy has to have a dream.

I’m… so… so… sorry to have to be the one to tell you this.


… it’s cheating on you.

With me.

Alternatively, the cheerier view is that I’m dating its twin Sister :wink:


Twin sister? Have you ever seen them both in the same room at the same time? I don’t think so. There’s a reason for the ‘generous household licence’.


Fabulously job, a bunch of wonderful new features and refinements, thanks so much!

Is this version substantially the release version? If we see bugs, or things seem broken, should we posts queries here, or wait for the release version?


I…I was going to post here just to heap further accolades on Keith but…I don’t know, it’s a little skeevy in here. :wink: So I might just back away slowly and go find a good case of beer and some rye bread (was it rye? I’m going to go find that post on Why Keith Hates Americans) to send across the lake…

Love it, Keith. Seriously. It’s so shiny. Which automatically means I will be more productive, right? Right.

I know I just posted a query, but I love it. It’s beautiful. I’ve created my NaNoWriMo 2010 project file and have begun my synopsis writing. Going to add pictures and characters and settings soon.

Please Help!

Desperate to join the fun, I downloaded ScrivNanoMacPreview, only to get the sad message
'Unable to unarchive ‘ into Downloads’ (Error 1 - Operation not permitted.)
Why ‘not permitted’ for God’s sake! What have I done wrong? Why am I being punished? Who have I offended?
Is there some simple cure or is prayer the only answer at this stage?

Anyone else suffering out there?


Yeah I got that the first time I downloaded - I just deleted it and downloaded again. Second time lucky!
