I'm glad you're up and running - thanks Mark for linking to the relevant thread. We are hugely frustrated with Apple right now. I uploaded the fix for this problem on the 8th November - over two weeks ago. Apple supposedly granted it an "expedited" review, which I requested, explaining that there was a serious issue where some users would experience a crash - but it's been sitting "in review" ever since, despite several desperate emails from me to them (to which I have received nothing but boilerplate answers, even when asking for a personal, non-boilerplate reply).

I really wish we could withdraw from the Mac App Store and never sell on there again, because Apple just isn't a reliable sales partner, despite the massive percentage they take; however, we know that our customers want to buy from there and we are committed to making things easy for our customers.

I have tried to do a Snapshot of :

a) the whole project (then read online that was probably better as a backup - done) it's 118,000 words...
It froze with the swirling circular wait icon and Apple App Force Quit said 'Scrivener (not responding)' so I force quit it.

b) a folder with documents within in totaling about 2000 words - exactly the same result

c) so I tried on a single document with about 400words in it - exactly the same result again. 10 minutes and still swirling. and again, and again....

I am:
Using a macbook pro
OS Mojave 10.14.05. (system info attached)

I am not sure how to get a crash report - all I found was the one it wanted to send apple which is 534 pages long. I searched 'crash report' in Scrivener thinking it might be internal? but nothing came up. So I have pasted here the first page of the apple report which seems mainly to provide info of my system.... Let me know what else I should send please.
