How often are files uploaded to the cloud?

Using cloud storage is definitely the best way to get the most out of Scriptation. If you are an Industry Pro user, and haven't already set it up, it's easy to sync to the cloud.

iPad / iPhone

NOTE: There is a distinction between saving and syncing. On iOS, Scriptation automatically saves locally to your device after every single annotation is made.

Syncing to the cloud works like this:

For iCloud users, Apple automatically syncs to the cloud every minute or so.

For Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive and Box users, files automatically sync to the cloud either:
Every 10 minutes
Every time you change tabs
Every time you close the document

In the unlikely event of an iOS crash, if your script had annotations that did not yet sync to the cloud provider, when you reopen the file on your iOS device, all of your notes will still be there!

Mac

NOTE: There is a distinction between saving and syncing. On Mac, Scriptation automatically saves locally every 5 minutes, or after certain major actions are completed, such as changing tabs.

Syncing to the cloud works like this:

On your Mac, your file is uploaded to whichever cloud service the file is saved to, anytime you manually save the file.

To do this, just click FILE, then SAVE. (Or keyboard shortcut: CMD + S.)



In the unlikely event of an macOS crash, if your script had annotations that did not yet sync to the cloud provider, when you reopen the file on your macOS device, all of your notes made before the last automatic save will still be there!
