Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

I did, and it didn't solve it for me. I've had your problem, the time-out crash, but only very very few times (and retrying helped) and if I had bad internet. So that hasn't been a big issue for me. Maybe these 2 issues have the same core problem going on, or maybe they are unrelated. Difficult to t...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Let's not forget that user 'mijalce' on this forum did an elaborate test in http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=255195#p255195 in which, if I read it correctly, he synced a 32MB project in Scrivener 3 and Scrivener 2.8 format. The same project, updated to Scrivener 3. One took 12...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Listening does no good if there is no hard data to actually guide the investigation. There are so many moving parts and variables, you have to have data that helps you eliminate potential sources of problems. L&L can care all they want, but without the support cases they mentioned, there's noth...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Hi Katherine,

thanks for the reply. I answered in the other thread in more detail, but in short: knowing that the team is taking a look at this, is enough information for me. Just to know that the complaints are being listened to.

Thanks,

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

I understand. The reason why I posted was to let people know that if someone is posting the same complaint with 1 116kb Scrivener File, that it gives more credit to 'us' and others saying that something is not in proportion in the Downloading File List time, that seems 'off'. I wasn't talking about ...

Re: Scrivener seems to be struggling with "Downloading file list"

Sorry if this is a double post but someone on the Scrivener Users podcast group had his ios device take 7 minutes to sync 1 Scrivener project of 116kb.
I don't know the technical specifics of that person's matter but I hope the Scrivener team takes a more serious look at these complaints.

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Hi Katherine,

in my case, on the iMac they are going to a local Documents folder, and on the Macbook Pro they are switched off. Nothing of the backups goes to Dropbox (I wouldn't have the space for it either).

Re: Scrivener seems to be struggling with "Downloading file list"

Thanks for doing the tests, Mijalce! So in your case it was a difference between 12 seconds and 3 minutes. It confirms that it's not just the doubling of indexing files that takes double the amount of time. My experience was the same, I went from a lot bigger projects (8GB big in the 'worst' case) b...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Well, maybe I should be more nuanced: support told me trough email that it cannot be avoided if the number of files are big, like in the case of big projects or a lot of projects. It's just weird that this wasn't a problem in Scrivener 2.8. I understand that if it has double the amount of files to s...

Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

Isn't this related to this thread (where I just posted as well) : http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=49779&p=255162#p255162 ? It's a bit weird that a lot of people from support are saying "You have too much files in your Dropbox, your projects are too big"...

Re: Scrivener seems to be struggling with "Downloading file list"

I have the same problem. It's really not just a bit slower, but it used to be instantaneous, now it takes literally 5 minutes. This is only since I updated my projects to Scrivener 3.0 I contacted L&L support about it. They said Scrivener 3.0 doubles the amount of files to be indexed, and that's...

Re: Latest release crashes on Dropbox sync

I don't have the problem of crashing but since updating the Mac OS version to Scrivener 3, my iOS version on both iPhone and iPad are taking forever to 'download file list' before it starts syncing. It does sync, not crash, but this only started since updating to Scrivener 3 on the Desktop. I don't ...

Re: iCloud Sync

I also would like iCloud Sync because Apple has more options than Dropbox, which only has their 10 dollar/1TB option or Free. BUT... - Dropbox Sync has been working fine for me. And in the past, a lot quicker and more transparant than iCloud Drive. - I *love* Scrivener's package format. LOVE IT. It'...

Re: iPhone X vs iPhone 8 Plus for Scrivener iOS?

I take this to mean that Scrivener will NOT be showing the binder on the left in landscape mode on an iPhone X, based on the supposition that Keith has taught Scrivener iOS to only show the binder on devices that have "Regular width." Yes, partly as a response to mike, above, that was als...
