Re: Strange wordcount behavior

I tried making a brand new project and copying the existing text into it. I'm seeing the same behavior with the new project, so I don't think it's a matter of corrupted data in the project.

Re: ios 11 support of "files app"

Your posts so far compare SQLite to a ZIP file, but Scrivener does not currently use a ZIP format and has no plans to do so.

Not as such, but the database file format has a well-documented spec and there is a command-line tool freely available for many operating systems (it ships with Mac and Linux) that can provide full access to the database, including dumpi...

Re: ios 11 support of "files app"

Have you considered using a SQLite database file instead of a ZIP file? SQLite has some advantages as an application file format. You wouldn't need to write file access code, since SQLite should already be available for every platform where Scrivener exists. You can also access arbitrary files withi...
