The question was, if you buy an educational license now, will you be eligible for the upgrade discount to Scrivener 4. I believe the answer is no.

Katherine

well, there is no talk about this anywhere may be one of L & L staff can clarify. I think it is too early to think about version 4 now.


It's not too early to think of Scrivener 2 -> Scrivener 3 upgrades, though, which are the same situation.

In any case, I've clarified with the head of sales that yes, educational licensees are entitled to upgrade discounts.

If any readers of this thread were told otherwise, please send an email with a copy of your receipt to the sales support address: sales@literatureandlatte.com

True … I've just done this for a former student in China, now a lecturer there. However, the discount is on the full price, not a discount on the educational price, which was fine by me. No complaints.

Educational licences *are* eligible for discounted update pricing, just the same as the regular version. Scrivener 2 users who purchased using the educational discount have been updating to Scrivener 3 at the $25 update price just the same as regular licence holders, and the same will be true in the future (not that I'm even *thinking* about Scrivener 4 yet!). The only difference is with cross-grades, as mentioned up-thread. Other than that one minor difference, the only difference between the educational and regular licences are the price.

Katherine, can you please point me to where a different impression is given? We'll need to fix that.

asd937 - many thanks for the kind words! I'm glad you are finding value in Scrivener and Scapple, and welcome to the forums!

All the best,
Keith

Not in our published materials, as far as I know. There were a few cases through the support queue. -- Katherine

Hello,

I'm about to buy Scrivener for Windows. Are standard version and educational version include same content ?

Best,
