* Please note that, owing to data protection compliance, licences older than five years are not stored in our system and so cannot be used to cross-grade. Also, because Apple doesn’t share customer data with us, we are unable to provide cross-grade discounts to users who bought from the Mac App Store. Cross-grading is only available for Scrivener for Mac and Windows.
