    Hi. I have just installed Daedalus on my iPad, and love it so far…except, how do I import a WIP? I've tried from Dropbox both .doc, .rtf, and .txt and all files show empty on my Daedalus screen, with none of my previous work showing that is in the file. I confirm the info is there by downloading to my Mac back again from Dropbox, and the documents are fine in their respective formats, but show as only a cover sheet on my iPad Daedalus screen. I am actually exporting from Scrivener to these various file types, and have about 50 chapters (which are very short 1 page chapters), and expected each to show as a page in the stack. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    I keep trying and trying and still no luck. I see now that the files are in dropbox, and I can see them from the Daedalus Dropbox screen, but they are greyed out no matter the format I try. Is there an instruction manual around here somewhere? I just don't understand how to get text into Daedalus from Dropbox. Can someone help?

    Sorry for taking so long in replying.
    There are two modes for importing files from Dropbox in Daedalus: whole folders or single files. If you open the Import view on the stack level, you can only import whole folders (which are imported as a new stack). If you open a stack (so that you're on the sheet level) and go to the Import view, you can import single files (but no folders). The imported files will then added as a new sheet to the current stack.
    Currently, you can only import plain text files (.txt) since Daedalus is a plain text editor and all formatting etc. of RTF/DOC files would need to be removed.
