Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Yes, about 2-3 minutes in my case on an iPhone 8, and up to 15 minutes on an iPad Air. So even the smallest change can take up to 15 minutes to be back in sync again. So 2 small changes already amounts to 30 minutes before you can start working. But, you could have avoided your work for nothing, bec...

Re: Is dark mode already in 3.03 or is there a new version coming? If so when?

Keith, the screenshot in your blog post looks beautiful. Can't wait.
Thanks for being so quick to support these technologies. I had to get used to the dark mode in Mojave first, but I really like it now.

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Has there been an update from Dropbox's side about this issue since June?

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

So, to double check if I understand in non-developer language, what is going on: The amount of files isn't the biggest problem, it's the amount of subfolders underneath, in your Scrivener-project. The Dropbox API is taking a LONG time to check all of these files within multiple subfolders, a lot lon...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

I run all the latest official iOS versions, so in this case 11.4, on all my devices.

Thanks, Amber, for the informative post. That already seems to clear up more specific where the issue could lie!

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

I have no idea why, but recently syncing got a lot faster. Just to let you know! Same. Still far from 2.8 level, but better. It might help to know if both of you had updated to Scrivener 3.0.3 on your Mac prior to these reports. I think it got better before the 3.0.3 release/update , but I don't kn...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Moreover, with a 20 GB project, you may very well also be pretty limited in available storage space, which would limit the size of the swap file that could be created, impacting performance even further. Just for your information, (because I'm gonna guess that it still makes sense for me to provide...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Thanks Amber, for the detailed response. I still hope we can at least find the cause. Even IF there is no solution, it would be nice if we would at least know where the problem is. Maybe a solution would be easier then, but even if not, now I think most of us are guessing. (and of course, your guess...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Scrivener 2 didn't behave like this. Correct. iOS Scrivener didn't exist when Scrivener 2 was written. Scrivener 3 is designed with iOS Scrivener and syncing very much in focus. If there was a quick fix I bet L&L would have applied it by now. I suspect that the long syncing times for some are c...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Hi Lunk, thanks for the elaborate post. I don't agree though, and you have avoided my main counter-argument. Your argument is: iOS isn't made for this. It's stripped down. You want too much from it. Fair enough. My counter-argument: it worked FINE with Scrivener 2.8 and Scrivener iOS. We upgrade pro...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Dear Amber, When I tried your methode (copy-pasting in Terminal, right? Mine is in Documents, and the Scrivener folder is in the root folder of my Dropbox, so I had to make some small changes in the path.) I got a figure of 20581. I have big projects (the biggest ones totaling 7GB). In total 11 proj...

Re: What am I missing in iOS? Inserting Research and Printing

There are 2 ways. One is a bit quicker but the name of the file in Safari will be a random name instead of a correct name of the article. The other one is a bit slower, but it will have the correct name when you bring it into Scrivener. First make sure you opened Scrivener iOS and you are in the fol...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Amber, thanks for the explanation. But I do think still something is up. I have been told before that the Scrivener 3 format doubles the amount of files that need to be checked. But the time difference in the 'downloading file list' between Scrivener 2 and 3, if you look at the test users did, was, ...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Just to add some additional feedback to the conversation: I also tried the whole deleting some recent.conflict files in the Scrivener packages but it didn't help. I also have the feeling that the syncing, next to the fact that it used to take some seconds on whichever hardware, now it takes about 3 ...
