Startup error

Hi. I’m getting a recurring error each time I start Scrivener. It’s a little dialogue box (image attached) that indicates an error in the template. I click OK, and then everything works. But it happens every time.

I’m pretty new to Scrivener and have no idea how to troubleshoot this, or even how to examine the template. Can someone offer a hint, please?


You might try what is discussed in the following thread. No guarantee.

Before you do that, be sure to make a backup copy of the project’s entire .scriv folder.

Thank you. Renaming the “templateinfo.xml” file seems to have solved the problem. (Or at least, I got the project open without error.) If I broke anything else by doing that, I’ll post again.
