three time I’ve tried, and 3 times Scrivener crashed adding this url to the Research folder
news.nationalgeographic.com/201 … ng-genius/
this part of the page may be to blame:

But I’d expect Scrivener to handle it more gracefully than crashing. Any brave souls able to reproduce my issue?

Tried the link. Took about 30–40 seconds, but it loaded eventually in Scrivener.

I did get the pinwheel and the “Scrivener is not responding” message in the force-quit window, but I let it run and it all downloaded okay.

ok thanks!

It worked for me, too, but too a long time because of how long the server took to respond. What crash log are you seeing, or is it just taking ages for you too?

Thanks and all the best,
