My outdated Macbook Pro was my primary tool of writing using Scrivener, after being unable to use Dropbox on that Macbook due to it being so old and unable to update to the newest usable version of Dropbox I figured it was time for a change, I copied my .Scriv file to a flash drive and got a chromebook but mistakenly forgot that Scrivener was a .exe file which required a separate chromebook app to run it. I was able to get scrivener to work on the chromebook using Crossover which runs .exe files but now I've run into the problem of not being able to figure out how to sync my .Scriv dropbox file to my iphone 7's scrivener app.

At the moment as I'm using the iOS scrivener app I'm stuck at creating a new project under the Dropbox category but can't get the file to transfer all the writing to the app. I must be missing a key step and am looking for some insight to the issue.
