Using Chinese characters (Traditional Chinese, Big-5 or unicode) sometimes makes Scrivener crash. Sometimes, it continued crashing whenever I tried to deal with Chinese characters. But sometimes it worked smoothly without crashing. Don’t know why.
If I copy-and-paste directly from Word, Chinese characters disappeared, while English still remained. If I import the document, then copy-and-paste, sometimes it worked, but other times, it crashed again.
Hopefully, the final edition already correct this bug.
Anyhow, this software is amazing, and I desperately expect the release of the final edition. It rescues me from escaping from dissertation writing.
