Re: DropBox no longer works

But the thing is, from all I can tell about the progress of Photoshop, they have added no new features of any use to me at all. After they added the warp feature to Photoshop, there was nothing left to improve, imho. I have many professional colleagues who complain about CC because of this - or beca...

Re: DropBox no longer works

Oh yes, I'd be fine with subscription IF they just would refund me the $2500 I already spent on the original versions of the software I already paid for! Honestly, just looking at my Applications folder list - where I have 25 expensive Adobe products that I paid for twice already - Photoshop 4, Phot...

Re: DropBox no longer works

Thanks! Yes, I already have a standalone version of Word & Excel that I don't want to pay rent on to the end of time. Also, I second the idea of emailing the document to my desktop version - I often do that anyhow, especially with PDF's of my illustrated children's books - since I notice it give...

Re: DropBox no longer works

Thanks... I'll look into iTunes. But I suspect it also would require my upgrade past Snow Leopard. I like to always tell the story of my artist friend Bob Staake, (http://bobstaake.com/) who creates his award winning children's books and New Yorker covers using an ancient iMac and the original Photo...

Re: DropBox no longer works

Thanks everyone! Sorry to hear that Scrivener for IOS is so totally dependant on DropBox. I hope some future build allows one the option to put a sync folder wherever you like instead. My problem is I make most of my income running Adobe Photoshop and CS6 - and the text of my picturebooks is just an...

DropBox no longer works

Today I got a popup message from DropBox asking me to log in again - and then informed me to 'please upgrade your system'. Yes, wouldn't that be lovely... it would only cost me about $6000 to do so, to replace a perfectly tuned and running $3500 Mac Pro system that I use to make my living as a child...

Re: Tips on Syncing iOS with Desktop Scrivener

And since I cannot find the 'post new topic' link anywhere, I'll post this here. I just saw today that DropBox is dropping support for many older Mac OS systems, including mine. I create my children's book illustrations and writing on my original $2000 Mac Pro and invested more $1000's into the soft...

Re: Does Scrivener on iPad support Snow Leopard sync?

Thanks for all that. I do have 2.8.1. I did finally manage to get my iPad to link to a file on dropbox - by only by first going to the sample project file step by step and somehow getting into dropbox from there. So I'm glad to see that it IS possible to connect, even though all the other 'normal' t...

Re: Does Scrivener on iPad support Snow Leopard sync?

Thanks. I get either one error message that says 'No Scrivener project found on Dropbox' Or the other message is 'Unsupported project file format' - which I find odd since it's a scrivener file. Ugh. I never had these problems with Textilus. It just plain worked. I've never tried linking anything to...

Re: Does Scrivener on iPad support Snow Leopard sync?

Thanks for the reply. Basically nothing works. I updated my Mac desktop version of Scrivener - to the latest. I just downloaded the iPad Scrivener app a day ago. BUT I have had NO luck in getting the project sync to work. When I get a project downloaded to my iPad from dropbox, the error message is ...

Does Scrivener on iPad support Snow Leopard sync?

I've been finding it impossible to get Scrivener on the iPad app to sync with my Snow Lion desktop. So I'm wondering if it's because my desktop still runs Snow Leopard? Because I have $5000 worth of software and equipment that will be obsolete if I upgrade to Sierra, I have no plans to ever upgrade....
