I recently downloaded a trial version of Scrivener and used it for a few days. When I opened the program today, however, I found that the work I did in Scrivener last time I used it has not been saved. I had used the program sporadically during the entire day and then closed it the next morning. During that time, I added a few new scenes to my novel and wrote about 800 words. I also changed the names of the labels, color coded all of my scenes according to POV, and then reshuffled a few of the scenes.
None of these changes were saved, despite the fact that I pressed control + s frequently throughout the day and also saved it using the file drop down menu a few times while I was working. I checked the backup folder but the most recent version available does not include any of these changes I made.
It was my understanding that Scrivener is supposed to save automatically anyway, so I’m wondering what’s gone wrong. Could it be because I’m using a trial version and I left the program open for too long before closing it, because I didn’t save the work correctly, or is it some kind of bug that will occasionally pop up to make my life difficult if I continue using Scrivener
