Collaboration between multiple users

Hi all-

I’m looking to share a single scrivener file across multiple profiles on the same Mac.

Doing so with dropbox leads to an issue where some of the important inner workings files can only be shared by link, rendering the shared file inaccessible to the second user.

Using the shared folders option on the Mac leaves the file so it can only be edited by the owner, eliminating the purpose of collaborating.

Any advice, technical or not, to assist with a smooth collaboration experience would be very helpful.


Scrivener doesn’t control access to the project, the operating system does.

If the project were stored on an external drive, than any user with privileges that would allow them to connect the drive would be able to access it.

USB sticks aren’t reliable or fast enough, but an external SSD drive should work.
