I have created an Aeon Timeline (v2.3.16 Mac) and am trying to sync to a new Scrivener Project. I choose to sync to Scrivener and my scrivener project and when I try to se the Project Sync Settings I am getting and Error: Duplicate copies of: "New Custom Field". I thought that if I choose "New Custom Field" this creates the meta data field in Scrivener for me and populates it. But I cannot OK the Project Sync Settings because it thinks I have chosen a duplicate field. If I create the new meta data fields in my Scrivener Project I can then choose them and continue my sync no problem, but for a quick way to get started with a new project I want to just choose the "New Custom Field" and have them created and populated for me.

Hi, Sorry you have found this issue, it is currently something we are working on fixing for the next update. You can get around this issue by clicking OK each time you choose one field to sync to, then re-opening Project Sync Settings and then repeating for the next field you wish to sync. We understand this is annoying and will take longer as you have to essentially do them one at a time, so we are working on fixing this. Jess

I have encountered this same issue. Any fixes?

Hi, Unfortunately no, at the moment you still have to sync fields once at a time as I mentioned above to get around this issue. Jess
