Re: High CPU usage with large project 8GB

sheshhh... and I thought I was pushing the envelope with my 1.8GB project! :shock: In this day and age, there will always be someone else pushing harder! :lol: Maybe you can import files as alias to reduce the bulk? As to myself, I am breaking up the monster into several smaller, more cudly cuties.....

Re: What if I Wrote & Nobody Bought?

If it comes down to that, you could always recoup part of your investment in both hobbies by shooting the laptop out of your backyard! :D :D :D

Re: 1.82GB project opens but does not show, pls help.

Thanks Hugh, that's good to know.
The thing was becoming ungainly anyway, so splitting it is a good idea.
All the files are research files, most imported as alias - I need to experiment a bit to make sure that links and references to original files don't get broken, etc...

Re: 1.82GB project opens but does not show, pls help.

Thanks AmberV, you've removed a ton of lead from my heart and put a broad smile on my face. I knew that could be fixed, nevertheless, pressure and anxiety build ups are sometimes hard to ignore! Is there a resource I can look up to learn how to split up this large document? I might as well do it bef...

Re: 1.82GB project opens but does not show, pls help.

Okay. I followed apple's instructions and got rid of scrivener. Then I reinstalled it from a fresh download. Upon opening scrivener, & after warning that it is an app downloaded from internet, etc... instead of giving me the start splash screen, it directly opens the offending file, and still sh...

Re: 1.82GB project opens but does not show, pls help.

Thanks for chiming in Bdillahu, that did not work.

I am going to reinstall scrivener.
How do I go about that?
1- simply delete scrivener from the applications folder.
2- download & install afresh?

Is there an uninstall method somewhere?
What is best practice here?

Thank you.

Re: 1.82GB project opens but does not show, pls help.

All right, thanks for the hints Hugh & Robert. There is nothing I can spot as unusual upon unpacking the files. However, the console shows a bunch of errors, invalid param & exceptions at a truckload of memory addresses: [on a fresh start of the whole system - I first opened a smallish proje...

Re: 1.82GB project opens but does not show, pls help.

still stuck and getting frustrated. After much trying things out and multiple restarts, now the other (smaller) projects don't show either. They open (it has a brief progress bar), they close (also has a brief progress bar), but they don't show on my displays - they are not in adjacent screens eithe...

Hello, I need a bit of help here. I have a 1,82 GB project containing 100's of files & videos imported as alias that opens but does not show on screen. - I closed the project after it would not open a couple of newly imported videos; it saved and backed up - I restarted the computer (old windows...

It actually started earlier:
I've had some instances of this error last Saturday during NiAD, and others reported it too. :)

Re: Cleaning up Forum posts

You are right SFOparky, this was a legitimate request. However, for reasons I am having difficulties to pinpoint, it rubbed against the grain: maybe it is the "clean up" that suggests something dirty is going on, or maybe the tone? Maybe it is just the high level of energy pumped up last w...
