Can't customise toolbar in 2.0.4

Have just upgraded to 2.0.4 but can no longer customise the toolbar. Can open the window but can’t actually drag anything onto the ‘bar’ because nothing sticks.

Any pointers would be appreciated.


EDIT: Also can’t remove any of the default icons.

It sounds like your preferences might have become corrupted. Follow these instructions to safely reset without losing your settings:

  1. Go to the main preferences panel in Scrivener and use the Manage... drop-down menu to backup a copy of your preferences to the desktop

  2. Close Scrivener

  3. Navigate to your ~/Library/Preferences folder

  4. In the Finder search bar, type in ‘scrivener2’ and make sure the search bar is set to search in Preferences for File Name.

  5. You should get one or two files (Snow Leopard uses the second) as listed below; drag and drop to move this file to the desktop:

    • com.literatureandlatte.scrivener2.plist
  6. Launch Scrivener again

    Now try to repeat the problem using the same steps you took from before. If all looks well…

  7. Insert your name and registration details again

  8. Use the Manage... drop-down to load your preferences from the desktop backup file

Thanks AmberV - I’ll have a go tomorrow when I’m back in front of the machine.
