iCloud Save/Sync Question

Recommended Posts

Hello, not sure if this is a bug, or expected behavior..

If I have opened a file from iCloud, I save my file (to iCloud) and then open it on my Mac to do some work on it.

If I then switch to designer on iPad again, the changes don't sync/show on the same 'opened file from cloud' within designer on ipad (this is the part that I'm not sure if this is a bug, or expected behavior), but if I browse the files in iCloud files app, I can see the changes have been synced. If I close said document on iPad, and then re-open it however, the changes are then reflected...

Just seems like it would be much nicer if the file has had changes made to it, were automatically reflected in the already 'Opened from Cloud' file on iPad Designer.

Other than that, stellar application guys, well done!

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi RyanH!

Unfortunately this is expected behaviour, you'll need to close the file in Designer iPad and re-open it from cloud after your changes have been made on your Mac, as the file will not automatically update.

This is a feature our devs want to include in the future so hopefully it'll be possible in a future update :)

Hi Dan,

Thank you, I was leaning toward that it was expected behavior after searching the help, and not seeing anything about it, but just wanted to clarify, thank you! :)

Also nice to hear that it’s something that might be included in the future!

 

I’m sure you guys hear it all the time, but it’s such a great thing to know that Serif/Affinity has real conversations, etc with their customers :) 

Forgot to mention that I love the tutorial videos as well. I always look there (and the help) if I don’t know about how a tool or feature works— very much appreciated!

Of course, I've moved this thread to our feature requests section of the forums so our devs know it's still an anticipated feature :)

We appreciate it! Our customers have made us the great company we are today and I'm more than proud to be a part of that community.

Thank you - I'll pass your kind comments through to our documentation & tutorial team :D

I'd like to upvote this feature: automatic 2-way cloud sync between iPad and desktop would be great.

Amazing mobile app btw. I'm switching from the "Graphic" app, but Designer on iPad is next level.

Hi, anything new about this topic. This feature would be very nice.

I deleted my last changes, because i did not close and reopen from iCloud and saved my file. That was very bad.

2020 and this feature is still wanted (and expected). The current behavior has caused me a lot of confusion switching between iPad and Mac and it would be really nice if the documents were always kept synced. I hope this will be implemented in an update soon.
