.zip files in iCloud

Apologies, I’m sure this is a very basic issue but I’ve not been able to find an obvious duplicate with a search of the forums.

I’ve just started using Scrivener and have created a folder called ‘Scrivener’ on my iCloud drive to save my project too. However, along side this folder (not in it) a plethora of .zip files are appearing of different projects. Why is this? Is there anyway of setting up an application folder to keep them in (as per iAWriter, Pages etc.) rather than it cluttering my first level iCloud drive folder?

Probably these are Scrivener’s automatic backups.

The backup location is set in the Scrivener -> Preferences -> Backups pane.


Ah yes - thank you ever so much. Sorry for such a basic issue!
