Timezone problem (?) Scrivener Sync

Sun, 21 Apr 2019 16:55:59 GMT

Hi! I just tried syncing a big scrivener project with Aeon-- I have done this in the past, and it works fine. Typically I create backstory events in Aeon, and most story events in Scrivener. Then I sync the project, and set the times for the story events in Aeon. But now, when I sync Aeon to Scrivener, all the timestamps are off by 4 hours in Scrivener. It seems like I must have a setting problem, somewhere, but I can't think where....? Help!

Update: it appears there is a bug in Scrivener that creates a time offset when syncing Aeon events to a Scrivener custom date field. According to this thread, KB is aware of the issue, and will try to fix it. For now, the workaround is to sync start and end times to a Text (not date) field created in Scrivener. Method is also described in the thread.
