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

Yesterdays dropbox update has not fixed anything. I still can't get Scrivener to sync my project files without crashing. :cry:
Any solution in sight?

Re: System voice (Mac)

Looks like a bug in the operating system to me. I get the same result when using Edit ▸ Speech ▸ Start Speaking command in any program at all. Yes, but strange is: If I use the hotkeys to start speech, Siri comes up correctly and is reading the editors text or the marked section. Greetings, Thomas

System voice (Mac)

Hi team, Voice output is something I am using on a regular base to let the system reading loud my manuscripts for me, to check how it sounds. Finally in Catalina it's possible to choose "Siri" as the system voice which sounds much better than our aged "Anna". Switching to Siri, t...

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

That's like saying it makes no sense to use separate file folders when you're filing all of your various papers from over your life time. I mean, they're all in the file cabinet, right? Well, it comes down to the point, how Scrivener has been coded to sync with Dropbox. I can hardly believe the dev...

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

Maybe that’s why I haven’t had any problems? I have all my Scriv projects in a Db folder called ’Scrivener projects’, but I have my active projects in a subfolder ’Active projects’ and that’s the one my iOS Scriv is syncing with, not the parent folder. This would not work for me since I am working ...

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

Glad to hear that trimming the folder down helped. That’s something I’d recommend doing periodically anyway. The design intent for this feature was always within the threshold of syncing what you are presently working on. Hi Amber, I'm glad you are looking for the concerns of your Scrivener users. ...

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

I have tried again today, but any attempt to sync via DropBox leads to a crash.
I guess it is time to implement a process to syc projects via iCloud. :idea:

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

Sounds hopeful! I had seen one of these reports earlier, but it looked a bit like a generic system rundown rather than something specific to Scrivener, Yes, he did send it already ... Meanwhile, I switched back to the good old times and copied the project file I am working on via iCloud and the iOs...

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

None of us has seen this actually happen. If we could see it, it would probably already be fixed since such things are very easy to track down once they happen on a developer’s machine, with all of the debugging available. Amber, some of our Scrivener FB forum users have tried out to trace the cras...

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

I have tried different things today like syncing smaller projects only, setting up the sync chain new, etc. It crashes each time. Actually it doesn't crash , to describe it correctly. The app is being moved off screen into the background, but without syncing and it is still active. See screenshot. I...

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

Those of you who experience crashes, did you update your Scrivener app? Sure updating was the first I did before the issues started. In fact, after I was unable to resolve the sync issue, I did delete and re-install the entire sync chain from the scratch, means Dropbox and Scrivener. Still, it does...

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

Changing the Dropbox sync directory from apps/scrivener to a new custom directory did not work either.
Same result. Scrivener App is crashing on sync. (iPadPro 2018/iPadOs 13.1).
At the moment, I cannot use Scrivener on the way to work on my projects. :shock:

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

Is there a solution in sight for the sync crashing? I am trying since yesterday but could not figure out a way to make it work (iPad Pro 2018/iOs 13.1) It crashes each time after I initiated the sync process with DropBox.
