Can't compile

I’ve used Scrivener since November with no problems but the past couple of days I haven’t been able to compile. I’m doing everything I normally do – I go to compile, make sure the folders I want are selected, hit compile again, the export box pops up, I name my document, hit export … and then nothing happens. It goes back to the compile screen again. I’ve tried again and again and again but with no success. When I search my hard drive for what I named my document I don’t find anything.

So … what am I doing wrong? I did recently download the update to version 2 so I’m no sure if that’s it.

Thanks to whoever can help!


Are you on OS X 10.4 (Tiger) by any chance? A bug crept into the last Scrivener update that broke compile on Tiger. Although there will be an official fix for this in the next week or so, you can download an updated build with a fix for this from this thread:

Hope that helps.

All the best,
