Re: Tips on Syncing iOS with Desktop Scrivener

This post is GREATLY appreciated. It should be included in the Desktop Scrivener Help. When you search for Dropbox under the Help menu, nothing comes up. I just assumed Scrivener for OSX would sync with Dropbox without the need for an app, the way the iOS version does. This helped me find the right ...

That makes sense. Appreciated.

Yes. I don't know why these cloud services change the file and don't see it like we do on the desktop. That level of coding is beyond me...

Re: Invalid project error with 2.8 (and also iOS)

You must have done something more than just upgrade to 2.8. If you hade 2.7 before and the only thing you've done is to upgrade to 2.8 there is no way all your Scrivener projects would have been corrupted simultaneously by the upgrade of Scrivener. So think back. What else have you done on your des...

Re: Invalid project error with 2.8 (and also iOS)

I think this is key; you've managed to produce a zip-compressed archive with a .scriv extension. Choose "Get Info" from the Finder's pop-up menu (as seen in your screenshot), and it will hopefully identify it correctly. What you need to do is to extract the contents of the .zip version of...

Re: Invalid project error with 2.8 (and also iOS)

No, the screen shot is not from Finder, because Finder never has a Reveal in Finder option. It looks as some kind of Open file dialog, from some other app. So where did you start, to come to that first dialog in your screen shot? Inside which app? It's definitely not Finder. For your viewing pleasu...

Re: Invalid project error with 2.8 (and also iOS)

The dialog box in where? Open Finder, navigate to the correct folder and Ctrl+click the scriv package. If you refuse to follow instructions it's impossible to help you. Friend, I don't think you understand. Here's the steps I'm taking: 1. Finder: File/New Finder Window 2. Click on Documents 3. Cont...

Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

OneDrive can accept any type of file. It backs up everything on my Mac--from videos and music to zip archives, game code and web projects. It's exactly like Dropbox in what you can backup. There are no limitations. Maybe you're thinking of iCloud? I've been following the development of this since i...

At the bottom you have "Reveal in Finder".
So, where are you looking at the files?


I am in Finder. When I click "Reveal in Finder" the dialog just goes away and shows me the Finder box I'm looking in.

Re: Invalid project error with 2.8 (and also iOS)

Have you followed the instructions in the dialog and ctrl-clicked on the file in Finder, etc? When I ctrl-click on it in Finder, there's no option to view the contents. When I option-click, there's not there either. If I change the extension to ZIP, then I can unpack and see the contents, and I see...

Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

You guys are top notch with support! Just got the iOS version and love it! I was at first delighted to see that OneDrive was integrated, but then disappointed to see that it didn't work with the syncing--I'm forced to use Dropbox. Please consider expanding syncing options to include OneDrive. A gre...

Invalid project error with 2.8 (and also iOS)

OK so I've upgraded my desktop to 2.8 and bought the iOS version. When I try to open ANY of my Scrivener files, I get this error on my desktop. This is before I tried to sync anything with Dropbox. http://i67.tinypic.com/5ev2g0.png When I move one of these files to Dropbox, and try to open in iOS, I...

I use a Mini with an attached Logitech keyboard. It's pretty natural--and nice and small for carrying.
