Like other users, I sync Scrivener between my computers using DropBox and, aside from a couple of times when I’ve attempted to open a document before DropBox completed its syncing (fortunately, TimeMachine bailed me out), the routine has gone well.
I have set my office machine to shut down automatically at the end of the day, thus assuring that I can assume that no Scrivener projects will be open at my office when I get home at the end of the day. But lately I’ve been wondering whether it might make more sense to arrange to have Scrivener quit after a designated period of inactivity (say 90 minutes). The advantage of doing this would be that I could be sure that Scrivener projects were closed on my home machine (which I’d like to leave running so that I can use “Back to My Mac” to get files from it during the day).
So, two questions:
- Are there any good reason not to enable an automated Scrivener shut down of this sort?
- Is there a way to go about setting it up (e.g., is this something that can be scripted?)?
