Using Dropbox

I have installed the Scrivener app to my iPhone and iPad. I then decided I also wanted to work from my iMac. I use Dropbox to store Scrivener (in the App folder). But, when I open Scrivener on either iPad or iPhone, the file I am working on on the desktop is not there. When I go to Dropbox itself, the file is there but I cannot open it from Dropbox to work on it in Scrivener. What am I missing?

You need to tell iOS Scrivener where to look.
Edit → gear wheel, Dropbox setting… navigate to the correct folder, back out, tap the sync icon.
