Importing Scrivener 2 project from windows into Mac 3


My editor is using Scrivener on Windows and I exported my Mac project to him as v2 so he could edit it.
He sent me back the scrivx file but I get an error.

“manuscript.scrivx” is the main structure file for a project, but other required files for this project could not be found: the /Files/Data and /Settings folders are missing.

Can you let me know what he should be sending back to me to ensure this opens correctly?


He should be sending you the entire surrounding folder, “manuscript.scriv”, with all contents. He will likely need to zip the folder in order to attach it to his email. You will need to unzip it before opening manuscript.scriv with Scrivener.

Hope this helps!
