Current to version 3.2.1 for Mac
WriteRoom for Mac:
Upgrade your WriteRoom license for version 3.0 from this page (more details on page).
1. Where is my license key, it never showed up in my email inbox, or the Resend Licenses page says it doesn't recognize my email?
- First, if you purchased WriteRoom from the Mac App Store, Apple's service handles the license. You won't need to enter a license key.
- Second, please check your spam box.
- Third, you may have selected 'keep my email confidential' when you purchased WriteRoom. This causes Google Wallet to create a randomized forwarding email as part of your license key account, not your actual email.
- Fourth, if you can't find the license key email in your spam box, please contact me and we'll get it sorted out.
- Please note: Licenses are not transferable between the website version and the App Store version.
2. Why isn't my license key working?
- Please make sure that you're copying both the User Name and License Key 100% as it appears in your license email. The User Name must match exactly as it appears, including capitalization.
- Check to make sure you are using the correct license for the version. WriteRoom 2 uses a different license than WriteRoom 3.
- Download and run this custom script to reset your preferences and registration data.
- If you still can't get the license to make the OK button clickable, try a complete clean uninstall (with a tool like AppCleaner) and then re-install from a fresh download of WriteRoom.
3. The newer versions of WriteRoom won't run on my older system (10.4, 10.5, 10.6). Where can I download older versions of WriteRoom?
Please see the Release Notes page, where you can find the download links. 2.3.7 is the last version to run on 10.4 Tiger, and 2.5.2 is the last version to run on 10.6 Snow Leopard. Please note that the website store only sells licenses for WriteRoom 3 and these new licenses will not work with WriteRoom 2.
4. Why isn't WriteRoom 3 remembering my recent documents or which theme I used on each document?
Check to make sure you have Lion's Resume feature turned on: System Preferences > General > enable "Restore windows when closing and re-opening apps". If you don't want to use the global setting, here are some third-party options:
