There are certain rtf files that crash scrivener whenever I try to import them. I did my best to compare the files I could import and those I can’t, and the crash seems to only occur when importing rtf documents that include bulleted or numbered lists. I edited a file that was uploading without any problem, added such a list, and scrivener crashed during import.
To quote the official bug list on imports “Note: Import is fundamentally broken until we fix RTF”. I know they have a myriad of files that caused import crashes, whether they’ve found a connection to bulleted lists or not, I’m not sure.
Thank you. This is a known bug. It was fixed yesterday in the yet to be released beta 1.4.
