importing a stack to the iOS app

I'm confused about how and if this can be done.

I can choose a stack in the Mac app and export it as a Studies Archive or as a StudyArch. Best I can tell, StudyArch is the one that I should select.

The iOS app help says I can then upload it to Dropbox to then import to the iPhone. But from the instructions, it appears I should right click on it first and choose to zip it. So it is the zip file I should place on Dropbox?

Once on Dropbox on the iPhone, I can right click on a file and select Export, and then have the option to select "Copy to Studies". If I choose this, this will add the stack to my iOS app without screwing up any of my other stacks or folders?

Just want to make sure I have the correct procedure before I try it. Even when I used to sync the two apps, I typically only used the mac app to create and edit notes and stacks. But since syncing was a problem for me and I turned iCloud sync off, it seems like this might be a better alternative than syncing between apps.

    What you describe sounds almost right. You shouldn't need to zip the file yourself. The studyarch and .studies file types are already zipped.

    I recommend .studies if you are sharing with yourself, because it has the most information in it (ie Studies App Archive).

    Kind regards,
