I am running Scrivener 3 on a Macbook Pro. My Mac OS is Mojave ver. 10.14.1. I have successfully used Scrivener in this configuration before. However, today Scrivener refused to open. Every time I try and open it I get an error message that says Scrivener 3 quit unexpectedly. This happens before Scrivener has even loaded. I have tried opening it while holding down the shift key, as well as trying to open it with my Mac in safe mode. I also tried uninstalling Scrivener and re-downloading it from the apple store. no luck,
Open a Finder window. Look in the Applications folder (or wherever you installed Scrivener, if not in the usual place). If you’re not in the column view already then click on the three column icon. Then click once on Scrivener. The last column should show you information about Scrivener, including the version number.
Not really. They don’t communicate the status of a review with us, and there is no way for us to communicate with them outside of submission notes (which starts everything all over again). Outside of that, our ability to “push” Apple on anything is about as potent as your ability, through the public feedback forms.
And yes, as noted there are multiple fixes, you aren’t stuck. One of them is as simple as resetting your preferences. In your shoes though I’d just install the direct-sale version. You get to keep your preferences, and that one is going to be kept up to date—we had this bug patched within the hour and shut down the update server until it was up. That’s how we do business anyway.
I emailed Apple yesterday morning to find out what was going on. As of this evening, I’ve still had no reply, and Scrivener 3.1.1 is still sitting “in review” - it’s been six days now. It’s ridiculous, and incredibly frustrating that we can do nothing other than wait for Apple. It’s even more infuriating given that it is supposed to be an expedited review.
