I emphasised the word 'manually' in your post b/c you're "assuming" it must be a manual sync. Not so. Any cloud service requires sync'ing. Dropbox/Sugar Sync/iCloud. Doesn't matter if it's automatic or manual. A sync just needs to occur. The mere fact of putting a file into your Dropbox folder or moving an Evernote from a local notebook to a sync'd one doesn't perform the magic. A sync needs to occur. If you put something into your Dropbox folder but have no internet connection, guess what? The file will NOT be in the cloud unless & until there is an internet connection & a sync can occur. The OP posted "I didn't sync." If OP had either manually sync'd or left his Mac client open long enough to sync (if he had auto sync'ing set up), then OP would have been fine. Hi excuse intervention - I've been using EN for over 24 months now. There ARE differences between Dropbox and EN; yes you can set up Auto sync on EN and it will refresh Datasync albeit at a specified frequency. Dropbox on the other hand automatically and instantly refreshes sync, though yes provided there is an Internet Connection. Both need an internet connection but the important issue here is not that DB won't sync without one but rather that it is pretty much instant. However, their uses are slightly different. EN is a considerably more flexible tool - I use it for personal work and random note storage - it's an information / database management tool whereas DB is more of a file sync data storage tool. The tag system makes note taking (for me primarily for writing research) extremely useful and powerful. I agree that checking out the manual before use is essential, as with all software! And like all software, there will be moments of frustration - the biggest of which remains that I can't access the DB UNLESS Internet connected - but then I'm sure I'd not be especially happy to be porting the entire DB around on my handheld As for the exchange of pejoratives I always try to avoid heated exchanges - (and I'm not saying this is what happened) but explaining how someone failed to understand or implement an instruction / direction is always preferable to calling them foolish for failing to do so, however provoked. It will hopefully avoid further issues If they persist in the pejorative exchange then there are always plenty of other things to be doing then affording them time out of a usually busy day in furthering the exchange! Anyway back to trawling for the answer I need on an only partially related issue lol!! PS Nice to see the informative tone in the forums!!
