Issue with importing PDFs

When I import pdf files in Research, only the first page of the pdf appears. The rest are counted (so it will say on the bottom 1 of 20 pages), but they do not appear. Any idea? I have the latest version of Scrivener and I run Mac OS X 10.6.8 with no possibility for updating.

Here is an earlier thread on this bug. As noted there, this is an OS X bug we can unfortunately do nothing about. The best solution if you need PDF display in 10.6 is to use an older version of Scrivener that was compiled back before this bug appeared. You’ll find a legacy version on the download page. You can also of course load PDFs in an external reader with the “open” button in the footer bar. I’ve been doing that for years anyway, as the OS X PDF reader has been in various stages of “broken” for years now—10.6 just happens to be the worst.

Thank you very much for the fast reply! I missed the earlier discussion…
