Scrivener won't open

I have Scrivener 3 from the app store now for a longer time and since I updated to MacOS 10.14.1, it doesn’t open anymore. It just opens a small window that says “Scrivener was unexpectedly closed” and shows me a giant programming-text which I have no clue what it means. (I put it in the end of this thread, hope anyone understands it somehow).

I tried already to reinstall it, but it didn’t change anything. I also have the App on my iPhone (also latest version) and it works fine there.

My theory is, that it’s because of the MacOS update which brings a bug to the program. If someone can help me out, it would appreciated.

now, heres the giant text:

There is a known issue which has been fixed on the non-App store version, but Apple have not yet authorised the fix for the App Store.

However, if you download the version available on this site (not the App Store) temporarily, it will recognise that you’re authorised and allow you to use it temporarily. When Apple have got their act together, you can delete the temporary version and reinstall from the App Store.

There’s a page on this website with more details of how it happened and what to do next. (this is just an excerpt — do click on the link…)

HTH.
