Would it be possible to add pCloud as a choice for synchronisation? Dropbox is increasingly restrictive and it seems that pCloud performances match those of Dropbox and it would be worth to see if it can be compatible with Scrivener use.
Thanks in advance.

If you are talking about sync'ing between MacOS and/or Windows machines, just try it using a test project. There are a number of other Dropbox alternatives that can be used for that purpose … I use Sync to collaborate with my Windows using colleague in China. I also have a Box account which can be used for that purpose, but Box is not available in China it seems.

But do test it carefully with projects that are non-essential risking a WIP. And let us know how you get on.

On the other hand if you’re talking about sync'ing with iOS devices, then I’m sure the issue will be the same technical one as with other alternatives to Dropbox, the existence of the necessary APIs to make it possible.

Yes, I had in mind synchronising with iOS devices and of course, I don't have the technological knowledge to know if it is possible, which is why I made the suggestion to inquire about the possibiliy.
