There hasn't been a fix for the problem, but it seems it's related to the length of the path for a particular file being synced, and a few people have got around it by shortening filenames and shallowing hierarchies.
So, assuming that this hasn't already been mentioned in the last 22 pages, has anyone tried the following:
- Take a project that is not syncing and make a copy of it.
- Start with the longest path in the hierarchy (could be a really deep path structure or a really long file name or both) and remove it.
- Remove the Scrivener app from Dropbox sync and add it back in again.
- Try syncing the project.
- Go back to step 2 (Repeat with the next longest path.)
I'm wondering if you get to a point where the project will eventually start to sync.
a) All pathnames in the project structure are the same length (within half a dozen characters).
b) We have NO control over pathnames. They're unrelated to document names in the Binder.
Here you see typical documents:
