Error Message when opening project

Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

When I open one of my Scrivener projects, this error message pops up: “Errors reading project. Error: Error reading template info: Line:1 Column:0 Error:1” I’m still able to edit the project after dismissing the notification, but I’m wondering if there’s a way to fix whatever I’ve done so that it stops popping up.


It sounds like the template metadata file may have been damaged. Something you can try is closing the project, and using File Explorer, navigate into the project’s folder, under Settings, drag the “templateinfo.xml” file out of the project, to the desktop or somewhere.

If that clears it up, you can just leave the file removed or discard it. It’s not terribly important, it should normally just contain a little metadata so that if you create a new project template from this project, the new template window will be filled out for you.
