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

I don't know if it will work for everyone but I found a workaround that worked for me. I created a new folder inside Dropbox then I moved all my Scrivener projects from /Dropbox/Apps/Scrivener/ to this new folder I opened Scrivener iOS and it didn't crash. Then I closed it. I moved one project back...

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

The thread I reference below has a good discussion of the details. https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=35302&p=224510&hilit=icloud+API#p224510 Thank you for sharing. I guess I do understand KB's point better now. But anyway, if the entire sync process is that cr...

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

It's that they don't like the idea of supporting the users who would suddenly be complaining about corrupted projects. iCloud doesn't provide full access in the APIs for Scrivener to ensure that its project files are properly *and safely* transmitted via iCloud. This is literally a case of the devs...

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

It must be a nightmare debugging this because to many (most?) of us sync works just as well in iOS 13 as it did before. Well some of my friends and I do admin a German Scrivener group at Facebook, with about 800 writers using Scrivener on Mac/Windows, many on iOs too. I hear many users complaining ...

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

I just updated to i Os 13.2.3 but syncing still doesn't work. I am giving up on it now, looking for another process. Fact is: It worked perfectly before iOs 13.x and now it does not. :( It appears to be a lesson for me not to depend on too many different apps and services for production in the futur...

I have just installed the update and unfortunately, it does not fix the issue. Scrivener is still not syncing my projects and is crashing (closing).

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

What I wanted to ask is: you put on a command and it started copying a project. How did it know which project to copy? It just took the most recent one? I don't think your shortcut is a good option, because my projects are now not all together in a Scrivener folder anymore on my iCloud Drive, which...

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

Since a fix may tale a while, I have to move forward since my work cannot wait ... Although it is not recommended, I'm using iCloud to sync. Choosing this way, it is important to watch the project files completing to sync on iCloud once updated on the mac. Recently, the visibility if a project file ...

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

you can probably move more - in the end I only had one project that crashes the whole sync - but unfortunately it’s an important one.... Well, don't get me wrong. I certainly appreciate to hear about workarounds that may help to keep on writing and syncing. However, for me the main issue is: It wor...

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

iPad Os and iOs 13.2 just arrived. I have installed all updates and there is no change.
Scrivener is still crashing ... it is frustrating.

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

Yes, that’s the way Thomas Rabenstein is doing it right now, as I know. And as this seems to be working fine I really wonder if it couldn’t be possible to just let Scrivener edit in place a iCloud file and make everything super easy for everyone. Yes, this is correct and it works fine. However, it ...
