MAC to Windows via drop box.

Until now I have been using Scrivener on my Mac.
I have now got a Microsoft Surface and bought and installed scrivener for this.
However I cannot get the scrivener files that I have stored on Drop box from my Mac to open on in Scrivener on the Surface tablet.
Any advice gratefully received.

Are you getting an error message? If so, what is it?

Are you sure that the files have copied over to the Windows machine?

What version of Scrivener are you using on your Mac? Windows Scrivener 1.x is compatible with Mac Scrivener 2.something.

Other question: is your Microsoft Surface a “Surface Pro” with Intel processor, or a “Surface” with a totally different processor? Scrivener will only run on the Surface Pro.

As Mr. X asked, is Scrivener itself working correctly on the Surface?

Have you installed the Dropbox software on both machines, so that Dropbox appears as a folder in Finder/Windows Explorer? Using the web interface will mess you up, because it won’t handle the sub-folders inside the Scrivener project correctly.
