To set up Scrivener on iOS so that it can sync with Dropbox, follow these steps:
In Scrivener for iOS, make sure you are viewing the projects screen (the screen that lists all of the projects and the tutorial), and do not have a project open.
Tap the "sync" icon (the two curved arrows forming a circle).
Tap "Link Dropbox" in the menu that appears.
If you have the Dropbox app installed on your iOS device, it will now be opened and you will be asked to grant Scrivener access to your Dropbox account. If you don't have Dropbox installed, a sign-in form will appear inside Scrivener. Either way, follow the in-app instructions and give Scrivener permission to access Dropbox.
Once Scrivener has been allowed access to Dropbox, a "Dropbox Settings" panel will appear, asking you to choose a Dropbox folder. This is the folder you will use to sync projects between devices. Only projects stored inside this folder will be synced.
For now, we'll leave the default folder selected (Apps/Scrivener) and tap "Done". Just note that you could have chosen another folder, though - this is covered in the Using a Different Dropbox Folder section.
Scrivener is now linked with the Apps/Scrivener location in Dropbox, but the folder is not created until you add a project to the folder on iOS and sync. To do this:
Tap the + button at the top of the screen.
Enter a title for the new project and tap "Create".
Choose "Dropbox" as the location to save.
The new project opens automatically. Tap "Projects" in the upper left to return to the project screen.
Tap the "sync" icon.
If you have previously created the Apps/Scrivener folder in Dropbox, e.g. if you have already set up Scrivener on a separate iOS device, creating a new project is unnecessary; Scrivener will link with the existing folder and download any files that it contains.
(Note that all files within the linked folder will be downloaded to the device, but only Scrivener projects will be recognized and accessible within Scrivener. The folder you choose to link with Scrivener should be dedicated to Scrivener projects to avoid unnecessary downloads.)
You're now ready to bring across some projects from the desktop version.
