Working on a cloud-based project

New to Scrivener, and I have a newbie question - I have both Mac and PC licenses; what I now need to do is to have a project on a cloud server (e.g. dropbox or google drive for instance), and be able to edit/work on it using either the Mac or the Windows machine depending on where I am. Is this possible with Scrivener without constantly having to export to different formats? Would rather be able to use Scrivener than have to just go do everything in Google Docs…

Hello Itorg, and welcome to the forum.

We have this Knowledge Base article about working cross-platform that should help answer many of your questions.

We also have this Knowledge Base article about using cloud-syncing services with Scrivener.

And, if you decide that cloud-syncing isn’t the approach you’d like to take, we have another Knowledge Base article with tips on alternatives to cloud-syncing services.


thank you for the links! The first one got me going and it is working well with Dropbox… I see I’ll have potential issues with links to research files, etc., and certainly there are a lot of headaches to match Mac and Windows fonts/settings, etc., but if I stick to formatting and finalisation of the document on just one machine, I think it will be just fine!
