Document Versioning Issues between iPad and Mac


Recommended Posts

This is a followup to my earlier post about documents on Publisher 2 for iPad not being able to open Publisher 2 Mac documents.

They can be opened; but for some reason they show a previous save point. That's the actual issue.

I spent yesterday testing this. Both are on 2.0.4. 

The documents ARE on iCloud, which doesn't seem to be a problem for any other software. But also even though the document is downloaded locally (still in the iCloud folder) it doesn't seem to make a difference. No matter what I do, the iPad version is opening an older Save.

See the example here:

From Open Document on both, selecting the same doc on both:

The IPad document is missing content. It's displaying content from a day ago. 

 

This is killing me. Makes the app unusable.

So you are remembering to close your open documents on the iPad Affinity Home page before opening on the desktop? And of course vice versa when you move from desktop to iPad.

I'd closed the document on the Mac and then opened on the iPad. when you say the Home page on the iPad, you mean the Live Docs view? Yup. But aha, the iPad version breaks with the Save standard on IOS, doesn't it. You have to take extra steps to save a document. 

Doesn't really explain why it isn't a "frozen" version but just 1-2 Saves behind

Was it already showing in Live Docs, where you could just tap on it to resume work?

Or did you need to Open it, and navigate via a Files window to locate it?

The iPad version works the same as any desktop application, you do not leave files open in tabs on any desktop applications so don’t do it with any of the Affinity apps, any documents on the Affinity home page are just like open tabs on any desktop. 

Learn to use good saving and closing practice when moving between PC, iPad and  Mac.
