Yikes! Beta 23 expires on Monday! Hopefully we will have another beta/RC or beyond by then? :shock:

If we don't have at least two dozen more inquiries about it, all in their own threads, they *might* forget...

Indeed. They would probably forget to get dressed in the morning if we weren't constantly nagging them :D

Wait, are we supposed to be concerned that they haven't released an update before the end of the evaluation date even if they've never missed one? Or are we concerned that they will and want to be one of the ones posting that they did? Dang Mr. Kotter I'm so confused.

Miaow!! This cat feels singed!! :evil:

When I've extinguished my tail I'll have a look at Beta 24, which I see is out. You must all be prescient.

Speaking as someone who ignored the advice not to use the betas for important work, you betcha that I compiled all of my projects to Word yesterday. Didn't you?

Thanks to the developers for never missing a beat(a). The software is truly superb. I wish you Godspeed, so I can pay you for it!

Close! I set up all my projects, in Scrivener 1 or Scrivener 3 Beta, to auto-sync to folder in rtf files every single darn time I close the program - manuscript *and* assorted notes/research. I've recovered projects from the auto-sync folder before. It's a little messy, but you won't lose your work.

Before I left my full-time out-of-the-house job, I was a Software Engineer, and I had Quality Engineer training fairly early in my programming career. You darn betcha I always have a couple of backup/safety systems in place, and I am always willing to recommend doing so!

New beta. Cool. Time to update the machine and the old beast of a netbook.

If you're really concerned, open Scrivener the night before and keep it open, so you've got it on October 1.
