I believe my MBP automatically updated my Scrivener 2 to Version 3 after I installed Catalina, so I’ve received a prompt from Scrivener 3 that I am unlicensed and need to buy a license or upgrade from Scrivener 2. I upgraded from Scrivener 1 (bought in 2012) to Scrivener 2 in 2016, but now the application is telling me that I’m not eligible for a discounted upgrade. I have an education license, if that makes a difference. Anyone know what the issue is? I’ll pay the full price for the Version 3 license if I have to, but I’m a college student without a job (currently studying abroad) so it would be really nice to have that 45% off
An OS update won’t have updated Scrivener for you, so unless you downloaded Scriv3yourself, I’m not sure how that could have happened. Very strange.

Probably worth sending an email to support about this, as they tend not to deal with licenses in the public forum.
Lol. I emailed support; they said I have a Version 3 license already. I guess it was actually the update to Catalina that caused the license prompt. Embarrassed that I don’t even remember upgrading to Scrivener 3 in the first place…
