I’m not sure if it’s been addressed in another topic, but I am unable to figure out how to turn off the free trial window. I have already bought 2.0 and the NaNoWriMo trial window always appeares when I launch Scrivener and open my file. Will this message stop appearing on Dec 7th when the trial expires? Or is there some way to turn it off that I’m missing?
It’s just kind of annoying to have to click “Try” every time I launch Scrivener 2.0
The solution is to upgrade to the latest version of the official 2.0 release, which you can download here. Since you’ve bought the program, there is no need for the extended trial period any longer, and the newer version fixes some important bugs.
I have bought the 2.0 version. That’s why I’m confused as to why I have the trial window still appearing. I have my 2.0 registered and everything.
I just downloaded what you suggested, and when I open my file from that new download, the trial window doesn’t appear. I think what the problem is, is that I had saved my NaNoWriMo project in the NaNoWriMo Preview version of Scrivener. I’ll do some more experimenting and see what happens.
Your work in progress should just be a .scriv file somewhere on your drive, wherever you saved it when you created it. If you don’t know where it is, try using Spotlight to search for it. There is no way to save your work “in” Scrivener. It is just a file based program like many others. Your work is stored in files, typically in your home folder somewhere, like Documents.
Thanks for the download link and thanks for correcting my mistake in saying that I saved a file “in Scrivener”… I knew that, it’s just I couldn’t communicate well. Sorry.
So I imported the NaNoWriMo template to the download of 2.0 you gave to me, then deleted the Mac 2010 NaNoWriMo Preview File in my hard drive. Now I can open the NaNoWriMo project file with 2.0 without the Free Trial Window popping up.
All’s well again in the novel world…
Fantastic; you’re welcome! You wouldn’t have needed the template to open the other project you’ve already started. Those are one-time scaffolding tools. Once the project is created the template can disappear and they’ll be fine without it. But of course, if you want it for future use it’ll be nice to have around. Also note you can download both the template and the special NaNo export compile settings from the literatureandlatte.com/nanowrimo.html web page.
