Probably more a Mac issue than Scrivener, bug when working with a project in Scrivener on a 2020 Macbook air using the latest beta version of Mac "Big Sur" any time I go to. view Scrivener in full screen mode the program quits on me. Anybody else get this?

Thank you for calling this to our attention.

While we do intend to support Big Sur, you shouldn't expect to see any necessary compatibility updates until around the time of its official release. Early operating system betas in particular are often quite buggy, and working around issues that Apple will ultimately fix is not a good use of our time.

For this reason, you (and anyone else reading the thread) should be aware that use of Scrivener with any beta operating system is unsupported and entirely at your own risk.

Thanks, Katherine. I always back up. Frequently. And in numerous places. Your advice is well – healed. I just thought while I was testing the OS I’d let you know. Keep up the great work at L & L.
