I purchased a new computer specifically to write my book. I did NOT want this computer on the internet at all. When I downloaded Scrivener 3 yesterday and installed it on my new computer it forced me to go online to register with the license key. I understood having to do it that first time so it could communicate with the servers to be sure it was a valid key. I wrote 2 chapters then went to do something. When I came back and opened Scrivener, it told me I had to log onto the internet again to validate a license key or my trial would end in 30 days. It also says something about checking online for any discounts I may get for upgrading. But there is already a link there to click if you are upgrading and getting a discount.
After registering the license key the first time I got the successful dialog box so now I am concerned I will have to log onto the internet every time I open Scrivener. I do not plan to save my work on any online servers. I am storing locally and on my external drive for a backup.
Is it possible to use Scrivener without being on the internet? I truly love this software so far but forcing me to log onto the internet before every use to validate my key is a deal breaker.
Any assistance or tips on something I should be doing that I am missing would be greatly appreciated.
