User Manual iOS

Because of incompatibility issues with Safari you can’t access the user manual at literatureandlatte.com/lear … ser-guides
so I have downloaded it using Firefox.

WinZip cannot unzip the downloaded file Scrivener_iOS-Tutorial.zip

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to actually access this user manual?

It would help to know a bit of your context, if simply downloading and trying again doesn’t work (sometimes downloads mess up). I don’t know what OS you are using, it sounds like you tried to use Safari first—so a Mac user? But then… WinZip?

Let me know, because it’s working for over here with a quick test. Here’s the .zip file list log:

If you look at my signature area you will see I am using iPADOS.

Safari not compatible so downloaded via Firefox. Used WinZip but said file does not appear to be a valid archive

Okay, as far as I know the type of dropdowns the site uses aren’t iOS compatible for whatever reason. It’s something we have on the list for the web developer to fix. I’m not sure how you got iOS Firefox working, it doesn’t for me, but maybe it isn’t for you either given the result.

Try using this direct link instead, and if that still doesn’t work, try Apple’s Files.app for unzipping instead (that works for me).

If what you want to do is get a new copy of the Tutorial in Scrivener, tap Getting Help at the bottom of the Projects list. At the bottom of the next screen, tap Reset Tutorial. If you want to put a copy somewhere else for reference, try compiling it to PDF or docx and exporting it from compile.

Hope this helps!

Oh that’s a good point, if you’re already a user the documentation is in the software already. :slight_smile: I figured you were an interested person wishing to see its docs, to evaluate whether to buy it, which is mainly why we make them available online. If you just want a separate copy of the tutorial to mess with, you can duplicate the built-in tutorial from the project Edit screen.

Yes I am a user. Should have thought of that!
