So, I got scrivener and used it on my mac for a while. The mac died, and due to finances, I got a pc. The first thing I installed was scrivener, only to find out that it could not open my scrivener mac files except as multi-foldered messes. Apparently had I been using the very latest mac version, it might have been readable.
So, working off my .doc backups (thank you open office), I was able to chapter by chapter, input my writing back into scrivener form. But now I keep finding myself hesitating to use Scrivener again. Not that I am going back and forth between pc and mac, but just that the work could be rendered useless once, why not again, has me a little gun shy. Will my windows generated scrivener files be rendered inaccessible if I don’t keep the latest version updated? Am I making any sense here? Should I slink back to Open Office?
I wish to continue, but i have this vague distrust now. And it’s so hard to get immersed enough to write as it is without an external thing giving me hesitation. Has anyone else experienced this, and how did you reinvest yourself in the program?
thanks in advance,
