(dropbox/apps/scrivener). But when I open the same file in Scrivener for iOS, it says that there are conflicts (even when there are none), and that it's going to create a conflict folder. I now have three conflict folders even when there are no conflicts. The same is true when I edit the file in Scrivener iOS. I edit the file, save it to dropbox, but then when I open the same file on my desktop, it says that there are conflicts and that it will again create conflict files. All these conflict files are adding up and it's making the whole process very, very messy.

Just go to Dropbox in the finder, locate the actual .scriv file for your project and drag it into the apps/scrivener folder.

I thought it did that automatically when it synced. Now everything's fine.
Thanks a bunch.

If you want to work on different computers you can't have the files local on one of them. How do you think the second computer could read the hard drive on the first computer?
