I have been developing my novel in Scrivener and Aeon. Recently I began to notice that when I would sync the two projects together, the order of the scenes would be incorrect in both applications after running the sync. I thought perhaps it was because I was making changes in both applications before running the sync. So recently I did a long stretch of work in Scrivener ONLY, before syncing to Aeon. I compiled an outline of my scenes and printed it, so I could check the results of the sync. After the sync, about 12 of the scenes were in the wrong order in both Scrivener and Aeon-- Aeon had improperly interpreted the order of the scenes in Scrivener, and applied the incorrect order to both documents. I put the scenes back in the correct order in Aeon, and then synced again, and after that both Scrivener and Aeon are properly synced.
I am not sure how to reproduce the errors, but I can say that all of the documents remain in their proper narrative folder, even when they are out of order after the sync.
Are you able to reproduce this bug reliably?
Yes. I have been observing this for some time, and trying different fixes, including resetting the sync. And, no, in the sense that I have no idea what triggers the improper order.
Can you make this bug happen with a clean timeline file?
Haven’t tried. Honestly it’s too much work! I would have to create a timeline file with hundreds of events and items.
Does it only happen with a specific timeline file?
I have never had this problem with Aeon before. But I have been working on this file and project for two years (no others), and I was not having this problem until recently-- only started noticing it in the past month, when I began to do extensive restructuring of my project. The last time I did extensive restructuring, about 10 months ago, I did not have any problems with sync.
I am forwarding my Aeon file and my scrivener file by email, as requested.
