Probably worth noting that you'll never *have* to pay for an upgrade. You can stick with 1.x if you wish. Although obviously 2.0 is going to have such wonderful features you won't be able to resist. Like a special SciFi mode, a panic button, and a speed writing mode.
(oh please oh please).

But remember, if you don't upgrade to 2.0 you won't be allowed to moan about the new icons. :wink:

I have one question before I pre-order: I generally have to work on my writing in my spare time, and end up doing so on about three different computers. Is the serial number valid for only one installation (I would like to be able to install it on at least my desktop and laptop)?

I posted this question on the announcement in the Windows Technical Support forum also, but I wasn't sure where the right place to ask it was.

Thanks again for a great product!

I'm a new user (2 weeks). I pre-ordered. Very impressive product, I am using it in two classes: novel writing and screenwriting, and have transferred 100 pages of a novel to it. I plan on also using it for my non-fiction article writing and even in my law practice.

My only beef is that you apparently cannot print either index cards or outlines. This seems like a major oversight. Hopefully that will be remedied soon.

Technical and time hurdle, not oversight. :) These features are already designed and planned for and they are going to be pretty nice. But short of folding space and time, not everything that is conceivable as useful could be compacted into 1.0.

Yeah, still perfecting the tesseract. Two options for you in the meanwhile are to use compile to include just titles and synopses for your elements (maybe also meta-data if you want things like labels and keywords included) or to take a screenshot of the outliner/corkboard and then print that to PDF. Depends what you're going for, but plenty of users, on both Mac and Windows, have successfully done both. In time of course we'll be adding specific capabilities for this, as Ioa said.

Pre-ordered, got my serial code, and on a whim, activated my copy. Don't get the 'this is a trial' popup when I open the application now, which is nice...but I'm also a bit worried I wasn't supposed to do that yet, and I might have broken it!

Fingers crossed...

Sorry for the stupid comment. Obviously it was not an "oversight". THWAACKK! [Sound of user slapping himself alongside head].

Both above suggestions worked. Thanks for the tip and your patience.

No problem.

I've pre-ordered too. Can't wait! I am a bit nervous about the cross-over, ie beta expires Nov 7th and purchased version available Nov 7. Can I download the nanomo trial version over the 049?

Oh and I want to say big big big thank you to all who have worked on this! No problem re delay. Doesn't that happen to all writers? I know that my last novel took me 4 more years than I expected. It's coming out February 2012!

Yep, that's doable. Thank you for pre-ordering, and best wishes for your novel's debut!

My impatience has a question! The full release will be available this coming Monday, but for which time zone? Is that set yet? Will it be available a bit early stateside if the release lines up with UK time? If so, I would be totally fine with that. Basically, I just really really really want to download the full release as early as possible.
