Converting Old Files

Uploaded the newest beta 2.9.0.21 Beta (657047). Installed well. Tried to use an older project. It backs up the project but stops after that. Figure it was a large file, it would take awhile. Nothing happened after 30 minutes.

As you’re referring to the beta, did you check the Beta Testing forum? That’s where this should be posted anyway.

It should back it up, and then you should see a second message:

Once you click “OK,” Scriv should show the converted project. Beta 21/RC1 does this properly for me, regardless of whether I open the file from File Explorer or from Scrivener (just checked with an old project).

Kind of curious why it doesn’t work for you, though. Do you see any error messages? Does Scrivener crash or otherwise stop working?
