old laptop, new desktop

I am using Scrivener 1.54 on an old MacBook Pro that can’t be updated from 10.10.5. Recently I got a new (secondhand) Mac desktop running High Sierra and bought Scrivener 3 for it. Can I do my writing on these different versions of Scrivener? I will need to switch between computers.

You should install version 2.9 on both computers. Since the old laptop can’t run MacOS 10.12, you won’t be able to open projects update to v3 from your newer Mac.

Version 2.9 can use the license for v3 on both computers, and that license will work when you’re ready to get rid of your old mac and want to upgrade to the latest Scrivener.

thanks for your reply.

Thank you rdale. I will give this a go.
