So I have never gotten v 1.9.16 to work on my laptop, where I do all of my work, but I had another installation of Scrivener on my office computer, which has v18.104.22.168. So I thought I would try to do a little work–after a month’s forced hiatus–on my office computer.
So I took the Save file from the laptop where I usually work and opened it in v22.214.171.124. While the outline (chapters, sections, etc.) are still there, ALL OF MY TEXT–about 200 pages!!–IS COMPLETELY GONE! THERE. IS. NO. TEXT.
So just when I thought that not being able to use the program was a major problem, Scrivener proved me wrong–200 pages of work is now missing. How could this possible happen to my file?
