Hello everyone,

I am hoping I can get some help here. I have been using Scrivener for 3 years or so and I have many saved projects in this platform. Today I went to open an old project and scrivener crashed on me. This happened again and again 3 times. I tried then to open a new project, no problem. But when I went to open an old project again, CRASH!! I would love any help I can get and hate the idea of all those lost projects. Please help!

Have you updated to Big Sur recently?

If yes, you need Scrivener 3.2.2.

Psst... this is posted in the iOS part of the forum but Scriv 3 is mentioned, i.e the Mac version.
I am a user, writing non-fiction and science, using:
* Mac Scrivener 3 on a Macbook 12”, MacBook Pro 13”, and iMac 27”, running different OS.
* iOS Scrivener 1 on an iPhone 11 Pro, iPad Air 9.7”, and iPad Pro 12.9”, all running the latest iOS

Where? (I added the emphasis below.)

I mean, the user's profile says Mac, but nothing in their post says iOS or Mac.
