How can I setup iCloud to sync files across devices?



TIP: While syncing with iCloud Drive is possible, we strongly advise using a different cloud provider, ideally Dropbox. Reason being... Dropbox is built with version controlled sharing, which creates a new restorable file after each save instance. iCloud does not offer this back-up.

NOTE: Cloud Storage is an Industry Pro feature.

iPad / iPhone Setup

Start by tapping the File Browser on the top toolbar.



Under the Connection's heading tap iCloud. You will already be logged in to the iCloud account associated with your device's Apple ID.

TIP: Don't know which Apple ID is logged in? Go to the Apple Setting's icon.



Next, move or copy your local files into iCloud. In doing this you automatically create a back-up of your files should anything happen to your device.

TIP: Move is limited to single files. To relocate multiple files or folders use Copy.



NOTE: Files that are stored On My Ipad / iPhone only exist on that device, and are not synced to iCloud.

Mac Setup

With Scriptation for Mac, there is no additional iCloud sign-on required within the app. Your iCloud folders will be visible after clicking Select File from the Scriptation for Mac homescreen.



By navigating through the File Finder window, you can access all of the files and folders on your computer, including iCloud Drive.

Scriptation automatically generates a subfolder inside iCloud. It's ONLY this "Scriptation" folder that sync to iOS devices.



DON'T FORGET: If your scripts are saved locally (Desktop, Downloads, etc.) you will not be able to access them on other devices. The files must be moved into iCloud's Scriptation subfolder.
