Hello. I am rather new to Twine and so far I have had some trouble finding out what works and what not. I use Scrivener on my Windows 10 PC and my iPad for my writing and I really would like to keep it that way, esp because I can write on my iPad, so when I decided to start writing IF my choice was Twine due to it could import from Scrivener vis a command line compiler using the Scree template in Scrivener. It seemed to work nicely with Twee2 but when I tried to import the produced HTML story file to Twine 2 I got nothing but an empty unnamed story. In Twine 1.4.2 I could import both the source txt (tw) file I produced with Scrivener or any text editor and the compiled HTML from Twee2. 

It seems like that Twine 2 has fewer features than Twine 1.4.2 so I thought that there maybe was a command line compiler that will work with Twine 2 or some way to import the source files (tw). I am not ready to use a command line tool 100%, Twine is a nice visual tool and it has a lot of things going for it,

Any advise?

I found out that a proofing format was needed from https://www.mcdemarco.net/tools/scree/enscree/

It wasn't mentioned in the Windows version only in Mac version.

Just for the record, enscree is a story format for reformatting an existing Twine story as Multimarkdown for import INTO Scree/Scrivener using Scrivener's Multimarkdown importer.

Judging from what he has said out of band, I think Lars has found a different process that works for him involving Coda, Visual Studio, and TweeGo.

Why exactly are you trying to import into the Twine 2.x application?
eg. you want to use Harlowe?, you want to be able to use a web-browser to edit your Twine Project?

The reason I ask is that there are other ways to create Twine based story HTML files:
1. The Twine 1.x application.
2. A command line based TWEE Compiler utility like TweeGo.

(note: The Twine 2.x application is not a later version or an upgrade of the Twine 1.x application, they are just two different applications used to create story HTML files.)
