This is probably a Skim problem rather than Scrivener, but I’ve only experienced it when using Scrivener and post it here in case others have had the same problem and might know how to solve it.
I have lots of PDF files saved within Scrivener databases. As recommended elsewhere on this Forum, I use Skim as my default PDF reader to make notes on the PDFs, using the “Open in External Editor” feature. Recently I’ve found that Skim can no longer open the notes I’d previously saved in the PDFs - it gives this error message: “Unable to Read Notes: Skim was not able to read the notes at [path]/[file].pdf. Failed to reassemble attribute value. Do you want to continue to open the PDF document anyway?” Clicking Yes opens the PDF but without any of the notes, thus losing access all my work…
Anyone else had this? Any ideas?
I’m using Scriv 1.11 and Skim 1.1.13, OSX 10.5.5
