Scrivener hangs on Manuscript Export (1.5)

Every time I now try to export any manuscript, the dialogue goes through the normal motions, where to save, which sections to include, etc. etc., then when I hit the export button, no matter what file format I set to export to, Scrivener goes down the entire progress bar, then it hangs. I let it sit there and beachball for almost an hour the other day, and it never crashes and gives me a dump. It just hangs and pinwheels.

This is the only bit of output I can get from Console:

2/20/09 6:15:58 PM[240] ([0x0-0x102102].com.literatureandlatte.scrivener[3116]) Exited: Terminated
2/20/09 6:22:04 PM[240] ([0x0-0x10b10b].com.literatureandlatte.scrivener[3175]) Exited: Terminated

Another try and fail:

2/20/09 6:25:07 PM[240] ([0x0-0x10f10f].com.literatureandlatte.scrivener[3221]) Exited: Terminated
2/20/09 6:25:07 PM[240] ([0x0-0x10f10f].com.literatureandlatte.scrivener[3221]) Exited: Terminated

Using beta 1.5 B6 in OSX 10.5.6. It’s been doing this to me since I updated to 1.5 Beta 3 (or 4?).

Anyone else having this issue?



To clarify, Scrivener does not output a file. I have to force quit the application.


Thanks for this. I was about to release 1.5 officially, too, so I’m glad you caught it. Could you please zip up the problematic project and send it to support At literatureandlatte DOT com. That way I can find the bug and fix it before 1.5 becomes official.


I sent it out last night. Let me know if you didn’t get it. :slight_smile:


Thanks - just received it. I’ll look at it tomorrow and get back to you.
All the best,
