I’ve been using Scrivener for a few years, and use templates for my work with various formatting presets and compile selections. I have just bought a new Macbook, and instead of cloning (which I’ve done previously), have installed Scrivener (and everything else) afresh. I assumed that when I accessed existing Scrivener projects via Dropbox, my formatting presets etc would still be there - but they’re not, it’s gone back to the defaults. Is there a way of getting my own presets back with out re-doing them from scratch? I remember that as rather a fiddly process.
On your original system, the Scrivener -> Reveal Support Folder in Finder command will open Scrivener’s application support folder. That’s where you’ll find your templates, compile presets, and formatting presets.
