I’m feeling pretty sick after an apparent saving problem wiped out several hours of work on a project.
This is using Scrivener 2.3 on a Mac Pro running Mac 10.7.5. The project is based off of the short story template. I’ve been composing while viewing all documents within a folder. At the conclusion of my session, I clicked on the title of a single document in the binder. I pulled up placeholder text I’d written in there days prior, not the several hundred words I’d just written. In a panic, I switched back to the top-level view only to see every change in that document and others – gone.
I opened the Finder and navigated to the project file. It had not autosaved for two hours. When I switched views, all of the work done since that time was apparently undone. Poof.
The project is saved on an internal drive (the start-up drive). Time Machine was not active during this time. Backups also have not updated and did not save the lost material.
Is this a known bug? Do I need to make a habit of manually saving before switching binder views?
