Does the IOS version have an analog to the Mac desktop process for dragging files and folders between projects? If so, what is it?

Thanks.

Nope.
I am a user, writing non-fiction and science, using:
* Mac Scrivener 3 on a Macbook 12”, MacBook Pro 13”, and iMac 27”, running different OS.
* iOS Scrivener 1 on an iPhone 11 Pro, iPad Air 9.7”, and iPad Pro 12.9”, all running the latest iOS

Does the latest version of Scrivener iOS allow this moving (or copying) of files and folders between projects? I haven't found a way. It seems odd not to be able to, if that is the case.

No. Scrivener for iOS does not allow you to open multiple projects at the same time (in part due to limitations imposed on applications under iOS.) So you cannot do the "open both projects, drag and drop between them" method you can use on the desktop versions.

The thread mentioned previously (viewtopic.php?f=53&t=35552&hilit=Move+file) is the only workaround I know of.

Thanks for the tip.

It is somewhat of a pain then not to be able to easily re-organize on an iPad :(
