Updating to 1.9 when you use Dropbox and two computers

I successfully updated my desktop upstairs and I would like to do so on my laptop downstairs. Will the update process on the laptop recognize that the .scriv files have already been updated/upgraded on Dropbox? Anything else to worry about when using Scrivener in this fashion? Have I missed a thread or FAQ that would educate me on this?


You should be fine so long as you give dropbox sufficient time to sync the new version of each updated project (and its backup) before you start Scrivener on either computer. I’d recommend just downloading 1.9 directly to the other computer and installing it in the same place as it was already; that way the 1.8 version doesn’t get a chance to try to auto-load an updated project from a previous session.
