I think sync should work fine if you check the box that says to copy back new cards created on the touch device.
Are you sure the notes are disappearing?
You can't sync one device with two macs. The way our syncing is setup, this will cause problems.
I'm not sure they are disappearing. I just can't find them
anywhere on either device. I have been syncing with multiple macs,
but I have been copying the App Support file from one Mac to the
other after syncing the iPad. Could this be causing the
I have all the boxes checked in the sync window.
How exactly does the sync "handshake" work? ...all new cards are
copied to the Mac and then the whole database is transferred. What
happens when card are deleted or moved on either end? Maybe if I
had a better understanding of the sync process, I could try to
prevent the problem myself without bothering you guys.
Basically, the iPad keeps track of which notes and cases are new or have been updated since the last sync with any Mac. When the next sync happens, whichever Mac that is, it will send back the new notes and cases, and updates. As long as the Mac can find the updated notes and cases, it should work. The Mac then sends back all of the new stuff, replacing everything on the iOS device.
So, to be honest, I think what you are doing should work. I'm not sure why it wouldn't.
Might be worth backing up your data, and then doing a few tests, creating a few new cards, and updating some, and then syncing with different Macs to see if it is OK.
