I am running Leopard on an old PPC Powerbook G4.
When working in my current project, Scrivener recently started to hang up when I exit Composition Mode. (This happened after the latest update to 2.3, but not immediately after.) I get the spinning beachball and the app becomes unresponsive, but it never crashes. I have to force quit.
I opened a few other old Scrivener projects and quickly tested them, but did not have any immediate problems.
So I tested dragging the contents of the Binder in the current project into a new blank project, and the problem disappeared for a while. Then it started again in the new project. It feels as if the project became “corrupted” after working with it for a while.
[Information that might be related: I had the same or a similar problem occur sporadically over the past year or so, in another project. My sense was that it happened when I had been editing or creating Inpector footnotes in Composition Mode, but I couldn’t figure out how to reproduce it reliably.
In my current project, Scrivener hangs every time I come out of Composition Mode, regardless of whether the document I am editing has any Inspector footnotes or comments. I don’t know if the underlying issue now is the same or different.]
Sorry for the fuzzy nature of this report. I would be grateful for any advice!
