Re: Scrivener Won't Open

The link to the test build posted here worked and solved my problem. Support had also sent the link, but somehow it had gotten corrupted and wouldn't open. Perhaps you can't imagine the relieve when I tried the one from Forum and worked! Glad to be part of the Scrivener community.

Re: Scrivener Won't Open

Re: Scrivener Won't Open

My problem is similar, perhaps worse. Everytime I try to open Scrivener it "unexpectedly crashes." Support sent me the text build -- should I install it? If so, on top of the existing version? Or do I uninstall Scrivener first. I am not a computer tech person and I am worried about compoun...

My problem is I began a rather large and still unfinished Scrivener project using Endnote and have numerous footnotes in Scrivener files referring to Endnote.
