I had been sharing a scriv project between a mac (10.6.8) and a pc (ancient winxp) via dropbox. What I would do is edit a copy on my mac, copy it to dropbox, copy from dropbox on my pc at work to another location and work on it there. I’d then send it home the same way by copying to dropbox and copying from dropbox at home.
I like it that way because then I don’t have to worry about file corruptions via dropbox.
That worked for a couple of years when it was two macs and dropbox involved. Now I’ve got a mac at home and pc at work. It worked fine that way for a couple of days, and then one day my pc couldn’t open the scriv file anymore.
The mac could still open it no prob.
I tried zipping the scriv file before dropping it into dropbox, and then taking it out of dropbox onto my pc and unzipping it there. Still no go. PC scriv can’t open it.
I don’t know what to make of this situation.
p.s. sure glad scriv uses .rtf for text files, I could still use my files, just not in scriviner.
Any suggestions would be great.
