Final Draft compatibility with Mac OS Lion (OSX 10.7)
Here’s an important notice for Mac users from Final Draft Inc. It deals with how to ensure your continued compatibility so I thought I’d post it for everyone’s benefit:
Apple has announced they will release their latest operating system, Mac OS Lion (OSX 10.7) this July. Many of our valued customers are Mac users, so we feel it is important to let you know how this Mac OS update will affect your version of Final Draft software.
Final Draft version 8 Users:
A FREE update for version 8 users will be available atwww.finaldraft.com/downloads/software-updates.php for registered users. If you plan to upgrade your operating system to 10.7, update Final Draft version 8 first for an optimal user experience. Without the update, changes in the new Mac OSX 10.7 will prevent Final Draft version 8 from launching. Once you update your version 8 software, you can activate and run the Final Draft application on your Mac. The new OS will not allow the Final Draft application to run for other users on a given computer unless those users also install and activate Final Draft while logged in under their own user name. If you do not intend to upgrade your OS to 10.7, there is no need to update your version of Final Draft.
Final Draft version 7 and earlier Users:
If you plan to upgrade to Mac OSX 10.7 and wish to continue writing with Final Draft, you will need to upgrade to Final Draft version 8. Changes in the Mac OSX 10.7 update prevent Final Draft version 7 and prior versions from running. Registered users (which you are if you are receiving this email) can upgrade to the latest version for just $79. If you wish to upgrade today, visit: http://store.finaldraft.com/final-draft-upgrade.html.
For Final Draft users on Windows environments, this Mac OSX release will have no effect on your version of Final Draft software.
