Sync with multiple Scrivener projects?

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 08:20:46 GMT

I am writing a series -- I've completed the first book and am working on the second. I'd like to use the same Aeon Timeline for the whole series, but different Scrivener projects for each book. Can I sync a single timeline to multiple projects? Or should I re-think using separate Scrivener projects?

I should mention I'm using the newest Windows versions of both products!

Hello! Regrettably, you cannot sync multiple projects at a time, as another user reported below, syncing Aeon Timeline to a different project will delete the currently synced project. The Scrivener sync is a relatively new feature and we will improve it in our future update. Please stay tuned, the next beta release will bring the extended support of syncing and you'll be able to un-sync AT2 from a project and sync it with another one. Eugene, Aeon Timeline Support

Hi, The above message is a error. You can sync multiple Scrivener projects to one Aeon Timeline file. You cannot have more than one binder open at the one time - eg. when you are performing syncing actions you can't do it with more than one file, but you can have multiple Scrivener projects that sync to the one file and open them up one and a time to perform the syncing actions. Sorry for the confusion. Jess

exactly my question here august 4. I have done a sync between scrivener and aeon and it works. it consist of input from second half of 2017. rather than creating new project I would like to be able to sync to the first part of 2017. I am unsure what will happen to the second part when/if I sync to first part... and vice versa. My goal is to be able to see in Aeon the (possible) relationships across the whole year. from Jeffs reply I consider it safe... but I don't want to be sorry :-)

Hi, If your two Scrivener projects are syncing to different events, then everything should be fine. When you sync to the first part of 2017 those events will be affected, and then when you sync to the second project, only those events will be affected and the rest will stay the way you left them. You can then re-sync to the first project again and it resume from the state you left it in. If you are syncing one event to two projects, this will still work, you will just have to be mindful that when changing the data of that event it will change the data in both of your projects. Jess

Great for me, then I can go ahead, there are no conflicts of events, it will however gain me flexibility since the spring project is some 2 GB and whenever quitting that heap takes quite some time for the to be created. that was one of the reasons I split it up.
