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

Please stop shushing or selling snake-oil-workarounds to the people coming here to report the issue with their specifics to try to get it resolved. a) The snake-oil-workaround with iCloud Drive and the iOS Files app WORKS and isn't all that difficult. Why wouldn't you want to know about it? b) The ...

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

25% and counting stops being a minority and starts being a significant market share . I say "and counting" because as you read through the 28 pages of this topic, you see every now and then people arriving, saying "I have bought the latest devices/upgraded to the latest iOS version a...

Re: [LH4238] Compile bugs in Beta 33

Here's the way it works in Scrivener 3. Selecting the Compile group eliminates Front, Back matter that don't belong, and unchecking the box takes the container out of the listing.

Re: [LH4238] Compile bugs in Beta 33

<$label>, <$keywords>... etc. placeholders not handled inside the Title Options is a bug, which has been addressed and will be available in the next build. Thanks for reporting this! I could not reproduce the problem with the <$img> placeholder. “Include text of containing group” only adds/removes ...

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

Not sure this helps but anyway. I found a work-around to sync between my Mac and my iPad: ... 3. On Mac, I remove a random Scrivener doc from the Dropbox sync folder. ... I tried removing different Scrivener documents from the Dropbox sync folder—big ones, smaller ones, very small ones. Doesn’t mak...

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 valua...

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

Some people are here saying it especially happens with projects that started with Scrivener 2 and were upgraded to 3. Sadly, this also appears to be a red herring. I asked a user with this issue to import the files from a failing project into a brand new Scrivener 3 project, on the theory that doin...

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

The only pattern is that it started with iOS13 and iPadOS ... and Apple soon made it hard (even harder than it used to be) to downgrade to iOS12 or earlier. Counterexamples have debunked device-dependent and project-dependent theories, other than it SOMETIMES helping to reduce the number of projects...

[LH4238] Compile bugs in Beta 33

These (and probably many others) compile if placed in a document, but not in Title Options: <$parenttitle> <$label> <$status> <$keywords> <$subDocCount> <$img> behaves in the opposite manner: It compiles if placed in Title Options, but not in a document When selecting a Compile Group: 1) UNCHECKING ...

Re: Inspector doesn't show the option to add bookmarks

After closing & reopening TWICE (with an hour in between), the problem is gone.

I have no explanation.

Inspector doesn't show the option to add bookmarks

I see existing PROJECT bookmarks, but no option to add more ... and no option to see or add DOCUMENT bookmarks. It seems to happen this way for all documents.

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

That’s something I’ve wondered. How many actual cases. I’m not trying to minimize the impact it has on those with the issue, just wondering how large a sample have the L&L team to try to lock down the cause? Clearly not large enough. As I said upthread, we have been unable to find a reproductio...

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

If the length of a pathname is the issue (which I doubt): Snapshots have longer pathnames than anything else. The first snapshot in the image has pathname = /Users/savage/Dropbox/Apps/Bobby Scrivener/Divided Minds.scriv/Files/Snapshots/7AD5EAE9-CC9E-437B-A770-B36E4C37276B.snapshots/2018-01-31-21-03-...

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

With 345 posts in this thread so far, does that mean less than 345 users have complained? Subtracting duplicates, Literature & Latte posts, and posts like mine, is it less than 50 users, perhaps?

Does that mean the problem is incredibly rare?
