I'm posting this to help others avoid a mistake I made.

I had several different problems with compile in beta, and yes, I knew that compile wasn't finished yet.

I searched online endlessly, and wasted a lot of time, though I learned a lot in the process.

My problem was that although the download page says compile isn't completely finished, it was mostly working fine for my purposes, and I couldn't find a post which simply told me which parts of compile were functional and which weren't.

I finally discovered that the tutorial for new users--which I had not looked at because I had been using Scrivener successfully for some time--is updated with each new version of the beta to indicate which parts are working and which aren't.

So if you, like me, are a person who tends not to read the directions first, and are needing to know which parts of the Scrivener Beta are not yet functional--download the current tutorial (Help>Interactive Tutorial) and you can find out there.

I hope this saves some people some time and effort.
