With MacOS Sierra coming soon, I'm wondering if anyone has experiemented with the iCloud Desktop/Documents sync with Scrivener projects in their Documents folder? I imagine it's a terrible way to try and sync a live project, but I'm wondering if a user enabling that feature will experience sync errors on the original computer if they allow iCloud to sync folders with Scrivener projects in them.

Is there a way to prevent Scrivener projects from being synced to iCloud even if a parent folder is synced?

I have no plans to use it myself, but I'm wondering if we'll start seeing an up-tic in people asking why their projects are all messed up, and if there's anything to be done about it. :(
