Re: Commitment & responsibility...

As a user of the Mac version, I respect the frustration of people waiting for their Windows V3. As long as they do it respectfully, it's fine. I think Keith put out a beautiful response in this thread, kudos for that. I just posted to say to the people being dissapointed with the missing deadlines: ...

Re: Saving something to Research folder on iOS?

I always put PDF's of webpages in my projects (both on Mac and iOS). There are multiple ways to do this. The one I use most is, if you want to have the correct name of the webpage added automatically to the PDF: 1. First open Scrivener and go to the Project and folder where you want the Research to ...

Scrivener iOS expand/collapse option in Link To Dialog box

As the title says, sometimes you want to add a link to a document in Scrivener iOS and when you have a lot of documents/files in your projects it's a big challenge scrolling to find the right one. We have an expand- collapse option in the binder. It would be nice to get the same one in the dialog bo...

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

There has, however, been a very powerful screenwriting tool long before Scrivener ever existed: Final Draft - available for Mac, PC, and iOS. Based on your comments here and even your profile name, screenwriting seems to be your primary story medium. Even if you also write novels or other story for...

That's so true. I think it was 7.5MB when it was released or something. And one of the most powerful writing apps on iOS.

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

PencilKit is a new framework that could clearly be applied to Scivener IOS A text app needs support for hand-drawn images??? Maybe (again, this is not knowledge, just a guess) it also implies a new PDF viewer built in iOS which maybe makes it possible for Scrivener iOS to do highlights on a PDF. Ve...

Re: Any other sync options on the horizon ?

No idea. I myself don't want to use bèta software but if someone has ipados bèta and would like to test it, he/she is always welcome to share feedback or results. I think the problem is not necessary a download limit but rather that it wants to send the file to Scrivener before it got completely dow...

Re: Any other sync options on the horizon ?

The main limitation is, as sidderke knows, that annoying Dropbox issue with slowness while scanning large folder structures. But that isn’t quite the same thing as overall gigabytes. You can have 10gb with five binder items. In theory a 70mb project that is only text, but has +10,000 binder items a...

Re: Any other sync options on the horizon ?

The initial upload to Dropbox could take a while, but even that was not too bad. That was/is 20GB in total, and took maybe a couple of hours. Surprisingly, the first download to my devices, iPad or iPhone, went pretty quick, like an hour or so, at most. I don't know if it's because we have pretty go...

Re: Any other sync options on the horizon ?

@sidderke, have you tried this way: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=239174#p239174 I tested it *just because* a while back (iOS 12.x) and it worked, but it was with a far less than GB project. Yes, that's the one I tried, and it works with smaller files, but not with very b...

Re: Any other sync options on the horizon ?

It works with like a 10MB file, but with a 10GB file, it says it can't open it. Are you saying that you are usually syncing a 10 Gb project via Dropbox between your Mac and iDevice? I have about 25 Scrivener projects, of which about 6 are between 1GB and 10GB. The 10 GB being the biggest one. I hav...

Re: Any other sync options on the horizon ?

I tried to see what happened when you put a Scrivener File in iCloud Drive, and opening it in the iOS Files App, which would send it indeed to Scrivener iOS and asks you where to save/open it. It works with like a 10MB file, but with a 10GB file, it says it can't open it. I guess because you can't d...

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

I hope Keith does NOT clutter Scrivener with lots and lots of more and more special gadgets and whistles and whatever. difficult to find the few things you really want to use. And if someone wants Scrivener IOS to become more powerful, like Scrivener on the Mac? Are you saying the Mac version has t...
