After I updated from 220.127.116.11 to 2,9,9,10, I lost about 1/3 of my book. Almost all of my chapters have multiple scenes that are borked.
The most common data loss looks like this:
Note how the scene states there are 1,525 words, yet they are unable to be highlighted nor copy-pasted into notepad. Does not affect spacing/page formatting.
The second most common data loss looks like this:
In this version, the latest revisions I made during my last pass have not been saved correctly. Not entirely unsaved either. Some odd result halfway in between. Affects spacing/page formatting.
The rarest data loss looks like this.
The correct placement of the image is at the top of the scene (not shown). Does not affect spacing/page formatting
Thing of Note 1) In each of the pictures, you’ll find an invisible image being selected. That is a bug that I’ve had since 18.104.22.168, which replaces my typing cursor. It works oddly. For example, I often navigated through my paragraphs using ctrl up or ctrl down. When that bug occurred, it instead swapped the first letter caught in that invisible square from superscript/normal/subscript. In 22.214.171.124, it only occurred part of the time. Now in 126.96.36.199 it occurs 100% of the time, no matter where I click.
Thing of Note 2) I’m sure you’ve noticed by now that my project has illustrations. 275+ 1920x1080 pngs. A chapter doesn’t break 50+, but a few individual scenes have over 15. None are very complex,( >1000Kb) but I figure they’re very likely affecting things.
Thing of Note 3) These problems are exclusive to the most recent back-up. When I open one from 188.8.131.52 (from about a week ago) none of these datalosses exist. This tells me that the latest save was messed up somehow. Furthermore, looking at the backup files sizes, there seems to be some problem with the saving process.
9/6/2020, the backup was 80,000kB.
9/10/2020 it jumped to 900,000kB. Later on that day, 1,400,000kB.
9/17/2020 it jumped to 1,700,000kB
During this period, I added maybe 10 illustrations, The rest were already completed last month. This filesize increase seems excessive.
Luckily, I compiled two days ago so I’ve only lost about 2 days of work. However, I find it difficult to move forward without a fix, since I have no idea when another dataloss could strike. I’m not particularly certain there’s anything you guys can do to recover the data, but if there is let me know.
And if you’re willing, if you send me a limited duration 184.108.40.206 version of Scrivener 3 I can test to see if the save is bugged in that version too.
