I’m using the latest App Store version of Scrivener (2.4.1, I believe) on OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.3, and every time I attempt to import a web page the program crashes. Every time. No exceptions. It doesn’t matter what webpage I import, it always crashes.
Here’s the specifics:
In any project (new or existing), I select the Research folder then I click and hold on the green “Add new document” icon. In the drop-down I select “Import a webpage”. I then either type a URL or one is imported from my clipboard. I either leave the title blank or type something meaningful… then click Ok.
The webpage appears for a moment, then Scrivener crashes.
When I relaunch the app Scrivener successfully recovers the two imported webpages. I can move them into Research and rename the files and everything is fine… at least until I try to delete the recovery folders. If I attempt to delete the recovery folders… the program crashes. If I relaunch it again, any recovery folders and web pages have completely reverted to where they were after the first crash (my moving them and renaming them is lost).
Have you tried the alternative File > Import > Web Page command? I sometimes find the Toolbar route a bit problematic - it will return a `problem URL’ or somesuch error - whereas the other way has always worked.
