Strange! I still have no luck seeing anything like this, even after testing with precisely the same versions of everything you are using. Do you see this happen if you create a test Mac account and throw a sample Scapple into the tutorial project or something, on this same computer?

Same issue.

BTW--I notice that ONLY Scapple files appear inverted in Quick Look

Have you tried doing a total wipe of Scapple and reinstalling it? Here’s how I’d do it:

  1. Delete all copies of Scapple from /Applications.
  2. Empty the Trash.
  3. Reboot with the Shift key held down until you see the Apple logo.
  4. Once you log in to safe boot mode, reboot again.
  5. Open your test Scrivener project with the .scap file and refresh it using the button on the right of the footer bar. You should see code. Scapple doesn’t exist now, so there is nothing to turn this code into a picture. If you don’t see code—stop the test. There is no point in continuing if the old Quick Look engine fails to uninstall. I have no idea why it wouldn’t be or how to force it to though.
  6. Close the project.
  7. Reinstall Scapple 1.3.
  8. Run Scapple once.
  9. In Finder, select a .scap file and hit the Spacebar to Quick Look. This will get the 1.3.1 engine installed and running.
  10. Load your test project and again refresh the .scap file.

Excellent! I’ve updated my earlier post that only suggested the safe boot to refer to this checklist instead, for anyone else that has a stuck display engine.
