iPad and I cloud sync and cross platform usage problems

Hello everyone. I am loving Scrivener and have been using it on my mac air laptop with success and am using iCloud as the storage.

I have just bought an iPad and am having a terrible time trying to figure out how to sync everything and using the program on the iPad. My folders, for example are listed in the side bar but when I click on them they don’t open.

Would anyone have a tutorial for using Scrivener across the mac, iPad and ICloud?

But most importantly how do I sync/save on the iPad?

Thanks in advance.

Take a look at the existing thread: iCloud sync works, sort of - #14 by November_Sierra

Hoiley, if you are thinking of the literal Sync function built into iOS Scrivener, that is designed to work with Dropbox (only).

Have you looked at the iPad Tutorial project? That covers most of what you need to know.

Full details on setting up synchronization can be found here:

As noted, we do not support direct synchronization via iCloud, as Apple does not provide the tools we need.
