Good Day

I downloaded the Scapple user manual as a .scriv file, but un-archiver will not unpack. The error message is " Unable to unpack .... into Downloads-(Error 2 No such file or Directory). I have tried on a couple of different Macs - Late 2008 MacBook running Sierra and Late 2012 Mac mini running High Sierra with the same result. Is it my systems or the zip file that gives the problem?

Doesn't help you, but, FWIW, I get the same error.

Terminal reports:

End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory

No need! I’ve uploaded a replacement copy, there was a problem with the .zip file on the server. The download should be 6,210,145 bytes.
