Scrivener crashing and other project file issues

Today I was viewing a PDF file within scrivener and switched to another document and the programmed crashed. Scrivener has crashed repeatedly with this project and we’ve never really been able to figure out why. It is a big project and there has long been a problem with Scrivener operating especially slow with this project. The last time it crashed I ended up with a lot of “recovered files” in the trash can but the names of the files had been stripped (the were identified by numbers only). At least some of these files contained no data at all.

Here’s the log from the latest crash:

Well, to add insult to injury, the forum software won’t let me submit the log because the maximum number of allowed characters is 60,000 (mine was 131,802).


You can attach it as a text file, or send it me directly.

What OS are you on? Tiger had some bugs in the PDF view that could cause crashes in some circumstances.


OS is 10.4.11 and I’m using an Intel MacBook.
