Registration key doesn't work

In the past I have installed Scrivener on new Macs without issue.

This time, it does not accept my registration details. I have emailed sales 3 times without response.

Does anyone have suggestions?

Can someone explain this folder icon?

I cannot understand why one of my folders has a text file icon superimposed. I haven't seen this before.

I suspect the answer is reasonably obvious, and I will accept whatever humiliating sarcasm anyone wishes to deliver. :wink:

I have attached a little screen shot for clarity.

Hi I am using Chronosync on Leopard without issue. I have CS set to automatically sync the folders that contain my Scrivener projects to my iDisk every hour. My other Mac has the same settings. This is the setup I had on Tiger and I simply kept going. I have not tried syncing directly Mac to Mac - i...

I love the sheer power that bursts from a great piece of writing. I read these gems every day. Sometimes it's just a word, maybe a sentence, occasionally a larger work. So I suspect that power has something to do with it. I cannot resist a good story. This applies to non-fiction as much as it does t...

Srivener is excellent for creating site copy!

Hello Keith I have been using Scrivener for writing copy for web sites. Your work has made mine simpler, and more effective. I thought I should let you know why. When we set out to create a site we spend a great deal of time with the relevant people in the client business. We have a bunch of irritat...

Mavis Beacon software is one of the heavyweights of the 'learn to type' world, and it's available for Mac and WIN. My daughter and I both used it and found it effective and fun. Recommended.

Both. For power etc the latest MB Pros can match or exceed the iMacs because you can add a HD with desktop speed and can up the RAM. So a laptop with an external monitor KB & mouse gives a great setup. But I like having 2 computers because I enjoy a sense of security: if one has to go in for any...

I pulled out of the parking space and felt the car going over a small bump. I looked in the mirror and saw that I had RUN OVER my Timbuktu messenger bag, with my Mac inside. I had left it sitting on the pavement next to the car. Gulp. I am really attached to my wee PB. An accident like that would b...

Well I didn't start out on a typewriter and I prefer to draft in Courier..... :shock:

I like it because it is simple and clean. I find it easier to read than any other font.

For final work it all depends on the media.

Hi Brett I suppose a lot depends on your own way of working. You sound comfortable with a single screen perched on your lap in a comfortable chair. I do that too sometimes. Incidentally, my main machine is a 12" PB, although I have a 20" iMac too. If I am simply writing, with little need f...

My input would be to go with the MB. You get a great balance of power and portability. When at your desk you can hook up to a nice 17, 19 or 20" external monitor and go dual screen, which is fantastic if your work involves a lot of research. The difference in price between the MB and MBP will g...

This may be useful. I use .mac and Chronosync to keep my Srivener files in sync between 2 Macs. I could just use Chronosync to do the same thing, but that means mountin the other mac each time and I like automated processes. I have a Chronosync file on each Mac set to sync my main writing folder (wh...
