I’ve been having problems with compile and was playing with various settings trying to figure out the problem. These problems have been reported here previously so I will not duplicate them. However, I have not seen the following issue listed:
I had previously compiled to myfile.rtf. I opened that file in Word to view the results. I alt-tabbed back to Scrivener and made some changes to the compile settings and attempted to compile again without closing Word first. Scrivener appropriately warned me the file could not be saved, but then, in the next dialog, reported that compile had completed successfully. It did not actually complete successfully since it couldn’t save over an open file.
Minor, I know but I figured you’d want to know about it. This might confuse someone less fluent in computers who doesn’t understand the concept of file locks or the difference between system and program errors.
I am using version .26 on Windows 7 Pro X64
