Hi,

I have scrivener files saved on my iCloud/files on my iPad. I have downloaded the Dropbox app but it does not allow me to upload them as they are greyed out when i go to select them.

Can someone help me please as i want to upload into scrivener but it says Dropbox is the only way to do this.

Hey @Laurence2, it’s my understanding that you’d like to save your files from the third-party application directly in your Dropbox account on your iPad; am I on the right track? If so, then you’ll need to connect the two applications from within the third-party app based on what I read on some resources I found on my end when I searched online for this inquiry. 
 
Hopefully this points you towards the right direction & please do let me know how my advice works for you or if you have misunderstood your request in any way. Enjoy the rest of your day until we talk again!

Hi, no that doesn;t help.

 

I have scriv files on my ipad in my icloud drive. I have the dropbox app downloaded. When i am in the dropbox app and click upload and browse, the scriv files are greyed out and cannot be selected.

According to scrivener, i have to use dropbox to upload into scrivener.

Please resolve

Hey @Laurence2, to re-iterate my previous post, you’ll have to first activate the integration through the third-party app on your iPad (i.e. instead of uploading your files from within Dropbox)
 
I hope that this helps you get going with the upload & please do let me know here in case you may have any additional Dropbox inquiries!
