These crashes seem to be related to that, but they are so deep in the OS that I'm not sure how to fix the issue and continue to use GCD. So for the next update I've ripped out that code and have made it so that the Scratch Pad window just updates its content when it is brought to the front, or when Scrivener is activated (brought to the front). That should be enough for most cases - the only time that won't catch a change is if the Scratch Pad folder has synced changes via a cloud service while the Scratch Pad is open. For that case, I've also added a "refresh" button. It's a little less automatic, but it should at least - I hope! - avoid these crashes in future.
All the best,

I have to quit the prog each time because I work on two computers . I have Big Sur 11.1 and Scrivener 3.2.2. I am reluctant to trash all my preferences, built up over several years, so just put up with the crashes, but it is odd ...
