Why would you argue against fellow users who are trying to get a company to respect their time? I cannot think of any motivation whatsoever unless you have some undeclared link to the company or fishing for freebies.. Nobody is attacking the company, so you do not need to defend it. We are just asking for a little bit of respect for our time, and to not be treated like software pirates or kids who can't be trusted to run a beta for a couple of months . And comparing this company to Apple is like comparing apples with... latte. Not a like for like comparison... This seemingly endless Beta with several missed go live dates and monthly updates is getting on everybody's nerve. Why on earth would anyone other than an employee of the company try to deny it?

Hi martienne,martienne wrote:Either make the expiry date longer, or make the updates automatic. I wouldn't even be here complaining, if I wasn't forced to go to this site all the time, to fetch the latest version.

Based on what others have posted here, I *believe* you can then have Scriv download the update and do an update in place. So no need to visit this site and search for the latest update.

When that date approaches, I use the "Check for updates" entry in the "Help" menu, and if there is an update, I click and let it update Scrivener. Easy peasy, no need to visit the website, doesn't take long enough to get coffee from the kitchen (I have a Gaggia Anima super-automatic espresso machine, like every coffee-loving author should ).
