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

Some more follow-up on this bug: Firstly, resetting the sync cache does not solve the issue. Secondly, the bug does seem to be bound up in the reading of sync files by the Scrivener app in its interactions with the Dropbox app api in iOS. For example, when the entire sync environment is reset (remov...

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

A little further detail on this, for the developers... This ‘last updated 0 seconds ago’ phenomenon for Scrivener project files in Dropbox seems to be something to do with the files themselves, not simply the process of them being synced to the Dropbox servers. For example: If I take a project in my...

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

Some additional resource hunting on this quite major bug: This bug (which persists and which many users here in the forum are reporting in various threads) appears — to me — linked to a strange phenomenon with Scrivener projects in Dropbox, which report via the latter as being ‘Updated 0 Seconds Ago...

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

Does Dropbox itself work correctly? Try opening the Dropbox application on the device and creating a file from there. (Just an ordinary text or image file -- you can't create a Scrivener project from the Dropbox app.) Yes, Dropbox is working correctly. I have done as you noted and created a new tex...

In the macOS Scrivener app, you can simply drag them from the binder of one project to the binder of another. 1. Open both projects, each in their own window. Arran...

Re: Scrivener 1.2 - iOS 13 - Settings - Syncing & Sharing Crash

This is happening to me as well. Also, Scrivener crashes every time I try to sync. No error messages appear, the app just crashes while in the process of downloading the file list, before the progress bar ever appears. iPhone XS Max. For information, I’ve posted on this bug in a bit more detail in ...

Re: iOS Update?

iOS Scrivener version 1.2 is now live in the iTunes store. Among other things, it includes an important fix for iOS 13 compatibility: please install the Scrivener update before installing iOS 13 on your device. Katherine Though, as I noted in another post (new thread in this topic), this latest Scr...

Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

As of the latest update to the Scrivener iOS app (today) on the latest iOS 13 installation, the Scrivener app still crashes (completely, returning to the iOS home screen) every time a sync is attempted via Dropbox. This occurs (and is repeatable) on iOS and ipadOS. STEPS TO RECREATE: 1. Open the lat...

Re: Scrivener for macOS doesn't yet function with new macOS 10.15 beta (19A471t)

Please to pass along the note that the laters developer beta (#3) of ios13, ipad13 and macOS appear to have resolved the Dropbox sync issues that have prevented cross-platform syncing within Scrivener since the betas began.

At this stage, all appears to be working on each platform and in sync.

Re: Scrivener for macOS doesn't yet function with new macOS 10.15 beta (19A471t)

Do be advised, of course, that you are prone to run into plenty of other bugs / issues with the macOS beta, especially at this developer stage. ...for example, Scrivener's Dropbox sync is not working correctly or reliably with the newest macOS developer beta (19A487l), despite the fact that the Scr...

Scrivener for macOS doesn't yet function with new macOS 10.15 beta (19A471t)

This is not a bug note, per se, since it relates to OS software that is in developer beta; but I thought I would note that the current beta of the new macOS 10.15 (release 19A471t) appears not to work at all with the Scrivener app for macOS. I provide this note to the coders at L&L that some wor...

Re: Bug when exporting to Kindle KF8/mobi format in Scrivener 3.1

I have found a 'solution' to my own problem, though I share it here for further comment and as a potential 'bug' in Scrivener 3.0's default export formats that might (I am not sure) need looking at. I noticed that the fatal compile crash in Kindlegen that I reported in my initial post occurred with ...
