Save As Template... won't compress file.


I seem unable to save my Scrivener project as a template. After clicking OK I get the following warning:

The zip function seems to work fine with backups. I shouldn’t have a problem with disk space or permissions and the console does not show any warnings. That said, after much searching, I have not found other references to this issue. I am using the Mac App Store version of Scrivener (2.3.1) along with Mac OS X 10.8.1.



Sorry for the inconvenience - this is a known bug in the App Store version of Scrivener caused by the recent sandboxing requirement. This is fixed for 2.4, which will be out soon, but in the meantime you can download the version of Scrivener from our site (which isn’t sandboxed and so doesn’t have the bug) and use that if you need to make templates - it should recognise you as a registered user if you have run the Mac App Store version once.

All the best,

Thank-you for the feedback. I’ve made a copy of the project for now, so I can quite happily wait for the 2.4 version.
