Hello,
I bought Scrivener not from the App Store but through your website, I think I got an eSellerate email somewhere,
Now I am about to change computer, what do I have to do license Scrivener on the new Mac? For a few days I'll probably run both computer as to make sure I transfer all the important files.
I do also have Scapple.

Thank you.

You should just download the latest version from the website, and input your license key. As far as I'm aware, individual user's licence keys didn't change (I think they worked with the new vendor to accept the old key codes). The latest versions of Scrivener and Scappel will check with the new license website, which I believe will accept the old user id and code.

Thank you, Scrivener will be the first app I'll install as soon as the new mac arrives.
