Dropbox “Dropped” My Computer

This morning, when I turned on my laptop, Dropbox prompted me to log in. When I did, though, I got a message telling me that my computer is not supported. Given that it’s still running Lion, I suppose that was to be expected eventually, but until now I’d been depending heavily on Dropbox syncing Scrivener documents back and forth.

I can still use the Sync.com desktop app or Dropbox web interface, but it adds extra steps to the process and is ultimately going to make it harder for me to keep track of my writing. Worst-case-scenario, my workflow becomes completely disrupted and productivity takes a nosedive while I sort out scattered documents. Scrivener and Dropbox together were truly a “set it and forget it” solution, and unless Scrivener has Sync.com support that I don’t know about, my hands are tied.

If anyone is somehow using Sync.com (instead of Dropbox or iTunes, the latter of which also won’t work because my phone is an SE and thus incompatible with my Mac laptop) with Scrivener in the meantime, I’d love to hear about your experience! Are you syncing between Mac and iOS? If so, how have you configured it?
