Help! How to open existing Windows project on recently purchased iOS version.

I’ve been writing a novel using Scrivener for Windows for over 3 years. Last night, I purchased the iOS version for use on my IPad mini. I have two main questions:

  1. Is there a way for me to open Windows created files on the iOS version? Basically, are these files compatible?

(Note, I already backup my Scrivener/Windows files to Dropbox)

  1. When I first opened the iOS version, I synced it to Dropbox/Apps/Scrivener. However, it only allows me to open newly created projects in iOS. I purchased this app with the intent to use/edit the existing Windows project on the IPad. I moved/copied my most recent Windows file into the Dropbox/Apps/Scrivener folder and synced on the IPad, but the Windows file still doesn’t show up to open.

Can anyone please help or explain?

Thanks in advance!

I answered in the Windows section, where you posted the exact same question.
