Just updated to A12 (downloaded and dropped in from dmg) and found that when I try to copy text from ESV, for example, I get an interminable "spinning pizza" when I try to Cmd-C copy text that includes a text footnote (e.g., Ex 17:1-7). It seems the footnote is the necessary and sufficient condition for pizza-making. I was able to Cmd-C text in A11 with no problem.

I noticed that my context menus are now empty ("Search this resource for...") used to be there in A11. So I've started a reindexing, which I hope will restore them. I don't imagine this could be related, but the reindexing is currently running.

I would post the logs, but they show nothing apparently relevant. I'd appreciate hearing if someone else can reproduce this.

I appreciate being able to be involved in the Alpha and thank the developers for being responsive to feedback through the process. A11 was pretty usable for basic things, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this develops.

Thanks,

John

When I use Cmd-C, it closes the program instead of copying the selected text. This is not progress.

My experience is the same as John's. If I avoid foot note references in the text, then Cmd-C copies the text. If a foot note is included in the selected text, Cmd-C closes the program.

It might be helpful if you and John would post your log files. See the first link in my signature, Item 6

Here are the log files, in case they might be of some use. It seemed the bug is pretty easily reproducible.

Cheers,

John
