Every Nova license comes with one year of support and updates.

Automatic Updates

By default, Nova automatically downloads new updates during the one year license period. Once an update has completed downloading, you’ll see a package icon in the tool bar to the left of the preview icon:

ready to install

Click the package to install the update, or simply restart Nova and the update will be applied automatically.

If you’d like to disable Nova from automatically checking for updates you can do so from Preferences > General > Software Updates.

Preferences

Manually Checking for Updates

To check for updates or view your current license information, choose Nova > About Nova….

At the top of the window, you’ll see information for the currently installed version of Nova:

nova license info

The second section of the window displays your license information, which can be removed if you desire.

Clicking Check for Updates will download the most recent version of Nova supported by your license.
