Hello, I’m making a thread here because I have a question.
I am using Scrivener window version through two computers and mobile devices. All three are synchronized with Google Drives. Project folders are stored on the drive, and folders exported for mobile are also stored on the drive. The problem is, the ’ Sync with External Editor’ function only works on one computer. It’s clearly the same project, but try to use a function on another computer, you get this error message.
The selected folder is already in use by another project.
To sync the project with the selected folder, Scrivener needs to create ‘Draft’, ‘Notes’ and ‘Trashed Files’ subdirectories as necessary to store the project files. The selected folder already contains files or folders using these names, which suggests that it is already being used to sync another Scrivener project.
(Note that the folder sync feature cannot and should not be used to try to sync a project between two different machines - this will result in data loss or project corruption. Folder sync is purely intended for editing files, and syncing the changes made, in external applications other than Scrivener.)
Is there a solution in this case? This is probably not a Google drive’s problem (synchronization is working well between the two computers).
I would appreciate your kind reply.
Please tell me if there is a sentence that you can’t understand. I am using a translator because I am not an English user.
