How do you sync files across all of your devices? Cloud Storage!

The first step to syncing your notes across devices is to make sure you're upgraded to Scriptation Industry Pro. If you're not a Pro user, what are you waiting for?

After upgrading, you'll be able connect to cloud storage providers, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive and iCloud.

TIP: Only files that are stored within those cloud directories will sync across devices. Files "On My iPad / iPhone", on the "Desktop", or in a "Downloads" folder will not sync.
NOTE: Scriptation does not have an independent server that syncs files. We leave that the professionals.

Cloud Setup on iPad / iPhone

Start by tapping the File Browser icon on the top toolbar.

From there you can connect with the cloud drives you wish to link. Tapping Dropbox, Google Drive and One Drive will redirect you to a separate sign in where you can log into your account with your username and password. For iCloud, you'll already be logged in on your Apple device.

And, just like that - you're synced! Your files and annotations will now be saved to that location.

Be sure to sign into your cloud storage provider on all your iOS devices to access your synced notes wherever you're working.

Now that your iOS device is cloud ready, learn more about moving or copying your files into the cloud.

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

Cloud Setup on Mac

On Mac, there is no additional cloud sign-on required. If you are a user of Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive or iCloud, your folders will be visible after clicking SELECT FILE from the Scriptation for Mac homescreen.

NOTE: On Mac, third party apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, and One Drive will need to be download from their respective websites.

By navigating through the File Finder window, you can access all of your Cloud Folders.

iCloud Dedicated Folder

Scriptation automatically generates a folder inside iCloud Drive. This is the main directory where all your files and folders will sync in iCloud. If you use a Mac, make sure to store all of your files and folders inside the Scriptation folder that’s located in iCloud Drive.

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 one of the cloud storage folders.
