I really don't need advice from you on how to respond to posts. For technical questions I will contact support in the future and ignore these discussions here.

This dispute is getting us nowhere. We'd better end it.

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

Do you have a complete list of who is having the problem? Do you have a complete list of who all bought and uses Scrivener? Do you have view into the support queues? Do you think L&L is lying about it, then? Because "minority of users" is how they have described the issue. Even so, th...

Why do you prefer biased information?


I prefer above all that this problem is solved, because it hinders me in the production process. To say that the problem only affects a minority of users is biased information.

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

For some it works, for some it doesn't, and based on what L&L have posted in here, it seems that those with problems are a minority of the users. Could you please stop saying here that the users who have the problem are a minority? I'm getting really tired of this presentation. I have the lates...

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

Do we know the status of this bug? I'm wanting to upgrade my ageing iPhone 6 to an iPhone 11 Pro.. but that would mean going to iOS 13 and possibly encountering this bug? I use syncing quite a lot via dropbox between my iPhone and my Macbook Air... I assume syncing sounds fairly broken on iOS 13 ? ...

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

I tried removing different Scrivener projects from the Dropbox sync folder—big ones, smaller ones, very small ones. Doesn’t make any difference. Sync always works after removing and putting back a project, respectively, no matter which. But as soon as I work on any Scrivener project on my Mac or iP...

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

Have you tried tapping Cancel to stop and restart, or does the crash happen so fast that you don’t have time to do that? Sometimes it happens very quickly, sometimes it takes a few seconds. To interrupt a process that is still running to start it again makes no sense to me. Either it works or it do...

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

A detail: although sync generally works for me, the process sometimes hangs and nothing seems to happen. When this happens I always tap Cancel and restart the process, and this is usually enough to get it going again. It seems there are actually two different issues that occur. Immediate crash when...

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

Just a thank you for taking the time going through all the troubles. This is very much appreciated. Thomas Hi Thomas, The factory reset was actually the only procedure I had not yet tried. Of course, the driving force was the hope that it would work again afterwards, but unfortunately it didn't wor...

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

After a long wait, during which nothing happens and the synchronization gets stuck at the "Download file information" step, the Scrivener App disappears from the screen and the process is aborted. The app still appears in the process list, but the process is aborted or, rather, it has not ...

Part 2)

4) Synchronization started

The synchronisation hangs in the "Download file information" loop for a very long time.

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

There are still more avenues for gathering data, but most of them are so extreme, to date nobody has tried them (nor do I blame anyone for not doing so). Spending half a day backing up, factory resetting , testing and then restoring your device is a lot of work. But it would serve to provide a valu...

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

”Mainly” is not specific enough. It could actually imply something completely different, e.g that mainly users with complex projects or a lot of background updating apps are hit by the problem. My new iPhone 11 pro behaves just as well as the old 8, and the same goes for the iPad. I'm not sure what...
