Spinning Beach Ball at Project Launch

Projects won’t launch. Beach ball appears and spins forever. What is going on???

I have the same problem. Has no one responded to this question from 2021?

No, because the OP didn’t give any information that would help anyone diagnose.

If you have this problem, then you should tell us:

  1. whether you’re using Windows or Mac, or perhaps Linux with Wine or Crossover
  2. which version of the OS
  3. which version of Scrivener
  4. whether you have just downloaded it or, if it has been working hitherto, what has changed on your computer
  5. on Windows, what anti-virus you are using and whether you’ve whitelisted Scrivener.
