I used to use Scrivener (I think it was version 2) to write my dissertation. I haven’t used Scrivener for a while, and now I realize that those files are not even compatible with the new Scrivener application.
I installed Scrivener 3, which claims it can automatically convert old Scrivener files into a compatible format. It failed. The converted files are just empty.
So I installed Scrivener 2, but it doesn’t even run on Mac Catalina.
I had purchased Scrivener 2 (if not 1) a couple of years ago, which I definitely shouldn’t have done. It’s very frustrating that you cannot access your own files. I should have used MS Word or Pages or Latex or whatever. I don’t need to edit the files. I just want to read them or convert them into other formats.
What are my options?
