I've just become prt of the family and have an iMac and a MacBook .
So can i ask this please?
if i save a file on my MacBook, obviously it uploads to iCloud and will update the file on my iMac when i opened it later, like any other file does. Can you just open up and work away this way?
many thanks and I'm looking forward to getting to grips with scrivener.

iCloud will work reliably, as far as I am aware, but only if the project is zipped first. Hope that helps.

JoRo wrote:For me, the question isn’t whether I or anyone else wants a dedicated macOS version of Scrivener as we have now; it is whether the market for such an app could survive in an Apple world of universal apps, compiled from the same source code. Yes, some or many people might want macOS Scrivener, but if that number proves in time not to be large enough to sustain a separate development stream, then I assume it would make financial and technical sense for Keith to streamline his work and the company’s offerings. There are already more iOS devices than macOS devices, and the indications are that the disparity between the OSes will only get bigger in time. As developers already have to design and develop for iOS / iPadOS, isn’t it logical to use that same code to run an app on a laptop rather than run expensive and time-consuming development for a market that appears to be shrinking? And especially for a single developer?

Yes, I think the current limitations of iOS impede Scrivener for iOS. It doesn’t suit my personal needs, but I know people who have switched to writing on their iPads and who are happy.
