All confidence in Scrivener (3 years worth) lost, it is garbage

I have an historical fiction novel that I have been working on for over 3 years. I have 325k words of story and probably a million in research.

I use a Macbook Pro 15inch 2019, 2.6 GHz i7, 16GB Ram, Catalina (please let me see you suggest Scrivener is not reliable on Catalina)

I hit Command -S at least 30 times a day. At least.

It is worthless to do so, for it is a fucking joke!

Today I simply highlighted half a chapter, to put it into another chapter, copied it (not cut) and pasted it into the next blank text section.

Scrivener crashed.

No worries, I saved about 5 minutes ago.

Nope, fuck you, says Scrivener, you revert back to the snapshot you took on the 7th.

Word to the wise, Command-S is worthless, you now need 500 snapshots in each chapter.

Unless you have a magical way for me to recover my 12,000 words since the 7th, don’t bother piping in.

Looking for a new program to replace this one as all confidence is forever gone, I’ll gladly take these recommendations.

Yes I sent a crash report.
