OK, this is quite frustrating, as if it cannot be solved, I’ll lose over a week’s worth of work… but ok
I was working on a Scrivener document an hour ago that I’ve created back in May and has always worked fine. A few weeks ago, sometimes, when I clicked in the Binder to change to another item, the spinning “beach ball” would appear, that Scrivener would shut down and a Mac OS X error message would come up. As I never lost any data, I didn’t bother.
But since the latest of these crashes (just now), I cannot reopen the document. Whenever I try, by either double-clicking on it in the finder or trying to load it from within Scrivener, it will just give me the beach ball, then Scrivener shuts down – error message.
I’ve tried copying the document somewhere else on the harddrive and starting it from there, renaming it; I even – in the Finder (show package content) – found the item I had last clicked on in the Binder before Scrivener crashed, deleted it from the package and tried to load it again… nothing worked so far.
Is there anything else I can do?
I’m using Scrivener V1.03. I have not added any new documents, media files or even ordinary Binder items before the latest crash; all I did was labelling items and adding keywords, then, as I said, upon clicking on the next Binder item, Scrivener crashed.
I really hope one of you can help here.
Thank you in advance.
P.S.: I should add that other documents open fine and that I have not installed anything on my iBook between when everything was OK and the permanent crashing.
