No Native Pages Detected message? Here's what to do next.

I've got a "No Native Pages Detected" message. What does that mean?

To better understand why this message appears, it's first helpful to know how Scriptation interprets pages. There are 2 kinds of pages:

Native: Official script pages, in their imported order.
Inserted / Added: User created pages, such as Sides, Facing Pages, and Copy/Paste pages.

This message appears during Note Transfer if the file selected to transfer notes from is made up entirely of Inserted/Added pages.

Here's what you need to do.

If transferring notes from any file stored in iCloud, first exit the Transfer window. Then navigate to the File Browser, and open the annotated file in a new tab. If the file does not open at first, close the tab and try again. Once open, go back to the new draft, and initiate the transfer again. (This temporary workaround resolves a bug in iOS 14.4.)

If transferring notes from Sides created in Scriptation, first enable Lock Mode, then reattempt the transfer.

TIP: Be sure to rearrange your sides into the correct pagination before attempting the transfer.

If transferring notes with non-Scriptation sides or any other script, use Master Edit Mode to assign the script pages only as "Native".

NOTE: Trying to transfer notes from a non-script document? Mark all pages as Native.
