Re: Any other sync options on the horizon ?

I did a little experimenting between iOS 13 and macOS Mojave (not Cat) using iCloud, and have what could be a workable solution. It does require a manual step at the end. Catalina may help, but I am not sure. - iOS 13 lets you pin a folder to always keep it downloaded. This is key if you use Scriven...

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

My wish list for iOS Scrivener is pretty small - A roadmap from Keith on what his vision for the iOS version. I am not looking for dates, but just an idea on where he wants the app to go. - More sync service options. We have beaten this one to death, but Scriv is the only app I use that requires Dro...

Re: iCloud Sync

Mac Scrivener has an auto-close option for exactly this reason. I use and recommend it to anyone who uses Scrivener across multiple devices. If you routinely have dozens of file conflicts, there is probably an issue with your synchronization practices. If you used another system, either you would h...

Re: iCloud Sync

This preference is mainly because if I were to place a long-term bet on if Dropbox or Apple/MS will be around in x years, I'd place the bet on the 1st party solution. Also, since the built-in solution is free. I see some cost savings. $12 a month for Dropbox is reasonable, but once a bunch of these ...

Re: iCloud Sync

If that is your problem with Dropbox, have you looked at the huge list of bloated things that iCloud handles? :) It sprawls as badly as iTunes. This thread is becoming a "no good deed goes unpunished" kind of thing. Someone posted about why people feel Dropbox is "bloated" (tbh,...

Re: iCloud Sync

On my !3" MBP, I have 8GB memory, of which Dropbox consumes 194Mb; it's more than Sync, but is hardly "bloated". Mark The point I was trying to illustrate is that Dropbox is way more than just a sync service now with the Slack et al integration. I don't have much of a problem with th...

Re: iCloud Sync

seriously what is “bloated, unfriendly and restrictive” about dropbox?!? They have added some new features: GoogleDocs, Office, Zoom Slack interaction that are probably more appealing to enterprise customers than consumers. As a result, the app now consumes 500mb of memory. I have 16gb on my Mac so...

Re: iCloud Sync

Okay, I'm the odd person out, here. I loathe iCloud. I hope L&L never eliminate Dropbox support because I'm increasingly frustrated by developers who are moving to iCloud only. I don't pay extra for more iCloud space, and I hope I never have to. Dropbox has always worked well for me with regard...

Re: iCloud Sync

Thanks for this succinct (re-?) statement of your position. This helps clarify things, for me, at least. I'm disappointed, and I admit that I'm moving to Ulysses for my current book project — I still miss some of Scrivener's capabilities, but fast and painless syncing, combined with enough multi-ta...

Re: Scrivener not working on macOS 10.15 Catalina beta.

A note for fellow thrill seekers.

The beta 2 released today clears the issue I was having. I now can see the text inside the UI elements. Binder and contents look ok.

As always, I still wouldn't install it on a main system.

Re: Considering iOS for Scriv. How do YOU use it?

I have a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and iPad Pro 12.9 with an attached keyboard. The iPad Pro is my preferred writing environment. I don't really notice that Scrivener on iOS is more of a companion app. What I will say, though, is the modal sync via Dropbox took a little bit of getting used to. I als...

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

It is just a branding name, and a way for Apple to indicate that updates will happen more frequently. I am running the beta and so far haven't run into any issues with Scrivener.

Re: iCloud Sync

One the one hand, yes, I would love it if Scrivener used iCloud for sync, but Keith's explanation makes sense. I'd also like it if it supported OneDrive, which would solve the Windows users issue. It would also be a redundant solution in case Dropbox goes under. I don't mind the increase in Dropbox ...

Re: IPad Pro 2018 support

We’ve had to go a little longer between updates this time around for various reasons, all good ones, and some unfortunate— It would be nice if we could get some sort of an update with a road map -- even tentative. The long time between update cycles, and no real word on what is planned, is a concer...

Re: Scrivener not working on macOS 10.15 Catalina beta.

I'll also chime in, as a mere observer to both Mac app development and using beta Mac OS releases... I've seen it stated several times in the past years that early Mac OS betas have bugs that break existing software, but after some releases, those bugs are often fixed by Apple. Experienced develope...
