Is there a way to force synchronization in the Bible app for Android? I made a lot of highlights and notes in a resource, but when I opened the resource in the desktop the new highlights do not show up. I tried pressing the Synchronize button in the desktop program, but I cannot find a similar command in the Android app.

I have also noticed some sync issues between resources in the mobile apps and the desktop, but trying to gather more info before composing a post.

Anyway, to answer your question. The only way that I know of to force a sync in the mobile apps is to just exit the app, then open it again.

On iOS, the answer is simply to close and reopen the app (if the sync doesn't happen for some reason). One other thing to check: Make sure the visual filter is turn on within the app (on desktop).

I'm using an Android tablet, and that's the only thing I've found that consistently works for me. Usually all it takes is shutting down the app on the tablet and restarting it.  Typically the desktop will sync within a couple of minutes.  A couple of times I've had to shut down and restart the desktop program after restarting the Android app, but that's been relatively rare for me.

How do you "Make sure the visual filter is turned on...?"

For desktop? In the resource pane, look for the "three circles" icon. If you need more assistance, please create a new thread and the forum community will be glad to help you. And welcome! Smile
