I have Scrivener 3 and recently I got a message that there's an update. I keep getting an error message that the update failed. (Sorry, I should have written it down exactly what the error message was but I didn't.) Now I'm wondering if it's because I haven't updated to Catalina yet. I'm going to hold out against updating to Catalina until I get an iMac. I'm afraid Catalina will make my poor, old MacBook Pro have a meltdown. I could always hope that it would be smaller and more efficient, but more likely Catalina will suffer from code and feature bloat like all other upgrades.

Will Scrivener 3.1.4 work with Mojave 10.14.6, or should I ignore the update, since it's not going through anyway, and stick with Scrivener 3.1.3?

Yes, it works great on Mojave. I'm using it on my Mac (still on Mojave for the foreseeable future), and haven't seen any issues.

If you can't get the updater to work, quit scrivener and download from the website:

It's working for me on High Sierra, so Mojave shouldn't be a problem. Try downloading direct from the website: ... s?os=macOS

Edit: rdale got there first :)

Thank you both! I will give that try.
