Dumb Q, but what happens to my existing Scapple files when the beta ends? I'll obviously buy a paid version as soon as it's available, but will it automatically take over my existing files? How will I even know that the product's now on sale? I fear missing the launch, and one day finding all my work for naught. Thanks, and sorry if the answer's obvious to those with more experience.

While the specifics of this answer are in regards to Scrivener, the basic idea carries over:

This is, incidentally, how pretty much all software works on a computer, so it is good general knowledge.
