Editors’ Notes

Serious creation calls for serious tools. After all, nobody’s building skyscrapers out of sticks. If you’re writing a long manuscript, your tool is Scrivener. Desktop users already know how seamlessly Scrivener binds your inspiration, outlines and writing—but you’re not always at your Mac—and thankfully the iOS app packs the same rich complexity. And yes, of course it syncs flawlessly so you’re never tied to just one device.

Syncing not that bad after you set it up...

I’m writing my first novel and I absolutely fell in love with the desktop version. There is nothing out there that can compare to the flexibility and organization that this software provides for writers of any type.

That said, I had some apprehension on purchasing the app. I read over and over how it had syncing issues. At first I had the same issue but through trial and error I figured out the problem was.

In order to sync your desktop version to the app you need to create a blank manuscript in the app first. This creates the necessary files in order for the app to access your designated scrivener folder in Dropbox. Once that happens just move the manuscript you’re working on to your scrivener folder and you will be able to work on it with no problems. Don’t delete the blank manuscript. I repeat, don’t delete the mobile manuscript. Deleting it will delete the apps ability to access Dropbox. That’s it... I wish someone else would have told me this.

Maddening syncing

I was exuberant to see Scrivener materialize with an ipad version. I have head a lot about it. I am a relatively new scrivener, just learning it, and involved in a lengthy writing project. I write mostly on iPads because I am rarely home and they are easier than laptops to lug around. I have the new ipad, 10.5, 256gb, and was looking forward to using scrivener on it.

Unfortunately, the Dropbox syncing is maddening. Today, for instance, it refused to sync and kept shutting down. After the first time, I got it back and backed up everything I was working on, and I was lucky I had the foresight to do that for Scrivener kept crashing. When I returned to the desktop, it wanted to sync with the ipad. This it did, but with the older version of the chapter that I was editing and I thanked the gods for that back-up I had stored elsewhere. I ended up deleting the chapter and starting over with the back-up I had emailed to myself.

I do not know what to say here. Not sure if the recent update will solve the infuriating Dropbox problems. I will give it another try and see what comes of that. If it continues, I will just have to use scrivener on the desktop, writing on another program with the ipad and copying it over to scrivener later on. Ultimately, I think Scrivener has to be taken out of Dropbox and put onto the cloud.
