I don’t want to sound rude, but do we know for sure this is half of the problem? And do we already know where the other half of the problem lies?

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

Apple just released 13.2.2 that should also fix the RAM issue. Not sure if this helps the Scrivener issue. I decided to now switch completely to my iCloud workaround and reconsider if there is a solution for Scrivener iOS, although I’ve been happy with my solution now.

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

I haven't tried troubleshooting and testing, so I can't answer on that yet.

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

Thanks for the message, Katherine. To add a data point, I have 12 projects in my Dropbox folder. My smallest 4.5 MB (template), my biggest 10.27 GB and a total space taken by the 12 projects of 20.24 GB.

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

For those of you, who want to take a look how that works, I recorded a short VDO on my iPad. Hi Thomas, thank you for your efforts. I've also been doing the whole copying through the Files app thing manually since it stopped working at the 3rd week of September. On one hand I think it's really anno...

Re: Unable to open any project on iPhone

I think it’s the Scrivener app but maybe with bold text turned on in the accessibility settings of the phone.

To the OP: I see you are running a VPN on your phone. Have you tried opening the projects with the VPN off?

Re: Saving a web page as a pdf to Scrivener in iOS 13

Thanks indeed everyone for the tips. Sometimes I put an article in Reader Mode if it’s available to get a cleaner layout.

Re: Saving a web page as a pdf to Scrivener in iOS 13

I used to do it via the print command, and I find it was better because it already gave the PDF the right title coming into Scrivener. You go to the print dialog, then you pinch in on the preview of the page, and if you go to the share sheet from there, you can also send to Scrivener (unless this al...

Re: I have recently upgraded my MAC to Catalina and my Ipad/phone to IOS 13.1.3

Are you logged in with the same Apple ID for your store account on the iPad and the iPhone? They are the same version, if you bought it for the iPhone (with the same Apple ID of course), you should be able to download it for the iPad.

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

Just to let everyone know that although it isn’t officially supported, unlike in iOS12, with iOS 13 I succeed in downloading full Scrivener files from iCloud Drive through the Files app, open them on the iPad/iPhone (copy to on my iPad) and afterwards copying back to iCloud Drive. With iOS 12 it wou...

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

With that said, I personally think that if you're hauling 10 GB projects around you'll be a lot happier with a Macbook Pro than with any form of iPad. Mac OS remains a much more capable platform. With Scrivener 2 and older hardware (at the time, iPhone 6 and iPad Air) those 10GB projects ran perfec...

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

I still have to check if with iOS 13 I can reliably copy Scrivener Projects manually from iCloud Drive through the Files App (I've had very quick and reliable syncs with iCloud Drive these days, and I have all my documents on there since I've replaced a my Macbook Air with an iPad Pro) back and for...

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

I don't have subfolders in my Scrivener folder and I still can't sync. In fact, I only have one folder anymore in my Dropbox, because I want to get away from Dropbox for some reasons, and it's my Scrivener folder with only my active projects. I have about 10 projects active, unfortunately they are q...

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

Why didn’t you tell iPad Scrivener to look in the correct folder? Edit -> Gear wheel -> Dropbox settings Damn I feel stupid now. I knew there was a way, but I was searching through the Settings App, and went to the question mark, etc. Don’t know why I missed. I’ll update to let know if sync worked....

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

So quick background: I have an iMac, an iPhone 8 Plus and an iPad Pro 11" connected to Dropbox. A while ago I made changes to 2 Scrivener Projects on the iPad Pro, but when wanting to sync, it always crashed. So, not wanting to mix up the system any further, I didn't touch these projects from t...
