Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

Yes!!!! It's fixed! I must admit I had switched to Ulysses meanwhile, but I'm not too happy there. Still, the manual syncing (and no TextExpander) are a downside for me on iOS. But I think I will just adjust my use and will use Scrivener for large projects only. I had used it for one-off texts as we...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

Okay, sorry if I made stupid technical assumptions. But it remains true that syncing is tedious, even without the bug. Maybe you just can’t have both: the greatness of Scrivener and an easy, seamless user experience when switching devices. The way I work involves many short writing episodes during t...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

All we have is a relatively simple loop that has worked flawlessly for nearly four years, until suddenly iOS 13 comes out (to be very generous, I’m still calling it a beta) and now some, but not all, devices mysteriously don’t have enough RAM to finish doing something an iPhone 4 running iOS 9 had ...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

"One of the biggest issues in iOS 13.2 is RAM management problem that is causing applications to be killed when running in the background. Early tests indicate that iOS 13.3 does solve this problem, at least to a certain degree." Apple releasing first public beta of iOS 13.3 today - 9to5Ma...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

Yes, that’s the way Thomas Rabenstein is doing it right now, as I know. And as this seems to be working fine I really wonder if it couldn’t be possible to just let Scrivener edit in place a iCloud file and make everything super easy for everyone.

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

I think we have to be careful not to mix things up here. It's one thing to shrink down your project folder temporarily as a workaround for the bug. Even though I would be afraid to reach the threshold for the bug while I am writing, then having again to use a workaround to get my files out of the d...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

If outsourcing projects helps (which, as it seems, actually doesn’t help in all cases) this can be a temporary workaround, but I really don’t understand the voices that sound like this would be no problem anyway. Of course you don’t need to sync every finished project you ever wrote, but for a profe...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

I’m sure they are working on it, but a short „Hi we’re still working on it“ would be very reassuring. I don’t blame the developers for the bug and I understand that it just might not have been possible to hunt it down yet. But on the other hand it looks like it’s related to the whole problem of the ...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

I have good news and bad news. The bad news: There was an update to 13.1.1 today, but it didn't solve the problem. The good news: I dared to upgrade to iOS13 on my iPad pro and Scrivener doesn't crash here! But of course, this is once more mysterious, since I have the exact same projects that crash ...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

Yes, I also finally have a log file. Someone over at Facebook told me to look for a jetsam log file and there it is, Scrivener crashes and we get a jetsam log. I sent it to your support mail address. Hope this will help fixing the problem. I have other entries for other apps too, so the memory reall...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

I had only about 4gb of free memory on my phone, but I deleted a bunch of podcasts and now have 10 gb free. It still crashes. I don’t think seeing it in the multitasking panel means it hasn’t crashed. When I „reopen“ from there I get a short startscreen with the Scrivener logo before the app starts ...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

Oh, and another thing I noticed, which might speak for a memory issue: I have the feeling that some apps like Friendly (a Facebook client) or the Discourse app reload their content far more often when I return to them after a little while. As if they had to clean their cache in the meantime. Maybe s...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

I’m getting the feeling that everyone with the crash has newer devices like iPad Pro or iPhone XS. Anybody here with an older device that crashes?

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

Yes, it’s updated. Initially it wasn’t and the crash happened on both versions.
