I can open Scrivener fine, just that that when I save work, I encounter problems. it beachballs and I have no way out except to Force Quit.
example: I tested it out just now. I took a snapshot, which worked, and then I tried clicking on the list of snapshots. Scrivener started beachballing until I forced it to quit.
similar to what I had happen earlier with another document:
I thought it might have to do with the numbers of Snapshots. ordinarily I take a lot of them. but I tried deleting some of the earlier ones and I still had problems. length of the document: about 65,000 words, not counting notes, no illustrations. had a video file but I deleted that, to, again, save memory.
