Error Reading Project notice

Every time I open Scriv I get the same error message.

It reads

Error reading Project
Error: error reading template info: Line:1 Column:0 Error:0

I can’t see anything wrong with the softwar itself and I can use it fine but I would really like it if anyone could offer advice on how to get rid of this annoying blip.

This indicates an error in the templateinfo file of the project. The file is only used to auto-populate the “category” and “description” fields when using Save As Template, so it’s nothing serious. Deleting the file with the project closed will prevent the error message recurring and will not affect anything else in the project:

  1. Close the project.
  2. Open Windows Explorer and locate the project’s .scriv folder on your hard drive.
  3. Navigate into the “Settings” sub-folder.
  4. Delete the file called “templateinfo.xml”.

Once you’ve done this, you should be able to reopen the project without seeing the error. Scrivener will recreate the file with the info you set when you next use Save As Template.
