Can’t get my file (from Dropbox) to update on my iPad

I’ve no problem on my laptop, but it’s now in the shop and I need to use Scrivener on my iPad. The file shows it was last update 15 October 2018, but when I sync with Dropbox it says it’s all up to date. Help!

You can check the date on the Dropbox version via the Dropbox web interface, at

It sounds like the current version may not have been uploaded from your laptop to Dropbox. If that’s the case, there won’t be much you can do until you get your laptop back unless you have access to a backup.
