FYI, Scrivener's icon on the dock looks like this:

Artistic or an error?

I usually have the latest Scrivener and Scapple versions.
Let me copy/paste the version from the About box, and I will add it to my signature.

That's how it's intended, so artistic.

I saved the old icon and use that with the new version.

While likely a heretic, I like the new icon. I think it reflects hands-on writing.

Okay, I can appreciate the art, but it looks like an error. New user evaluating software: "Wow, they couldn't get the icon right—what else is wrong with this software?"

What can I say? I thought it was an error. Not rude to pass that on.

I'm reminded of the time I was working for a software firm that moved to bigger offices. I walked into the new lobby with my team. One of my teammates remarked on how nice it was that the owner had put his personal art collection on display.

Teammate : And that was the owner...

You asked. You got an answer. The rude part is still calling it an error.
