I am brand new to Twine. I have downloaded Twine 2 to my MacPro laptop and created my first passage following directions provided on the Twinery.org website. But, when I click either the "Play" or "Test" buttons, either in the contextual menu below the passage, or in the bottom right of the Twine window, I see only HTML code, not the passage as it should be displayed. It seems that the backup copy is what is displayed.
I have changed the "Story Format" from Harlowe to SugarCube and tried to display the story. No success. I switched back to the default Harlowe story format setting, again with no success.
Interestingly, I tried the online version of Twine and did not have this problem.
I would like to use a downloaded copy of Twine to work with as it is not always possible to connect to the Internet and thus be able to access the online version.
Thank you for help and advice as I would like to move forward.
