Chanaging Sync Settings

I have recently started using Scrivener for iOS and it backs up files to my Dropbox account in the Apps/Scrivener folder. I want to change the sync settings on my PC so that it also now backs up to this folder but I can’t figure out how to do it. fHELP!!!

You actually don’t want to direct your automatic backups to the Apps/Scrivener folder. That will sync all of your backups to the iOS device, which will just add clutter (and potentially overflow the device) since you shouldn’t be editing your backups anyway.

You can change the PC’s backup location using the Tools/Options/Backup pane.

To connect your PC to the Dropbox/Apps/Scrivener folder, make sure you’ve installed the Dropbox software on the PC. That will create a location in Windows Explorer that you can save to just like any other. Once you’ve done that, you can use the File/Save As command to put projects there.

You can also drag and drop in Windows Explorer, but if you do, be sure to move the entire .scriv folder, not just the .scrivx file you use to launch your projects.
