Unknown Writeroom crash


Hi - I’m a Mac OSX WriteRoom user and I have found that the program has been crashing quite a lot recently. this may have something to do with Mac OS Sierra but I couldn’t say.

Identifier:            com.hogbaysoftware.WriteRoom.mac
Version:               3.2.1 (112)
Code Type:             X86-64 (Native)
Parent Process:        ??? [1]
Responsible:           WriteRoom [5056]
User ID:               501

Time Awake Since Boot: 120000 seconds
Time Since Wake:       3900 seconds

Above is some of the information from the crash report - most notably the time awake since boot and time since wake are kind of round numbers - so I’m wondering if there is a ticking crash bomb involved. No doubt this will disappear in Ver4 - but I thought I’d pass this on.

Many thanks,



Thanks for the report. I don’t expect a fix (that codebase is pretty much impossible to update so that it gets back into the app store), instead my effort is all on getting WriteRoom 4 out.
