All my Scapple files are the same.

Thanks, that looks to be a universal issue with the beta version of macOS. We'll look into it!

It seems to be a drawing bug in High Sierra. I've checked Scapple's Quick Look preview generator and the code all seems fine - as recommended by Apple for generators. But something in High Sierra is causing it to come out upside down. And of course, flipping it the right way around on High Sierra causes the preview to appear upside-down in earlier OSes. I have it on my list for further investigation - if it's not something fixed on Apple's end before High Sierra's release, then I'll dig deeper and possibly just flip things when it's viewed on High Sierra.

Just come across this, which is very annoying. Has anyone come up with a solution? I habitually use "Quick look" in finder
I will be very interested to know how to remedy this bug

Have you applied the Scapple 1.3 update yet? Since Apple never fixed this, that update includes the patch for the problem KB referred to above. If you bought from Apple, the update will be available soon.

I see the inverted images after importing the files into Scrivener 3 (using Scapple 1.3.1)

I’d try a reboot cycle into safe mode to flush system caches. I wouldn’t think Apple would cache an application’s Quick Look mechanism, but Apple seems to cache more and more with every update, so who knows.

Either way, on a fresh system with Scapple 1.3+ you shouldn’t get this problem. Scrivener has nothing to do with it by the way—it will be inverted in Finder, DEVONthink and anything else that makes use of Quick Look.

Hi everyone. Has anyone found that Scapple files (Scapple 1.3.1 (61) when imported into Scrivener3, either via the file menu or by dragging, results in inverted text? Very strange. I also created a test Scapple file and the same happened. Would appreciate some thoughts.
Thanks.
Julia.

Have you upgraded Scapple from 1.2 to 1.3? Experienced the problem myself with 1.2, and reported it. Apparently something happened when Mac OS went from Sierra to High Sierra. When I upgraded Scapple to 1.3, the problem disappeared and it now works for me as intended.

Yes, I see the same thing. Scapple 1.3.1, Scrivener 3
