When I press Auto Populate Synopsis in an empty project, it hangs and I have to kill the program from the Task Manager.

There is a known bug whereby if the document you are currently viewing is empty, or a document type that doesn't support text (like a PDF or image), clicking this button will crash Scrivener. So for now make sure to only click it when you have text you actually want to populate into the index card.
