simultaneous edits

Paul Oct 29, 2018 06:49AM PDT

After running into sync problems in the trial version I read through the FAQs/common questions and I noticed that on Dropbox, Box etc simultaneous edits on mutiple devices are not allowed/will cause sync problems.
Is there any way (Outline vs OneNote format, storage options) that simultaneous edits are possible? Having to close all current notebooks on my home Mac to be able to edit on my iPad and/or office computer would be a serious drawback...

Hello Paul,
thank you for your message!
Right now simultaneous edits are possible if you edit different pages of a section. If you try to edit one and the same page on different devices at the same time - that can cause conflicts.

I love OUTLINE, but I noticed when I use CHROME instead of SAFARI, the web postings do not include the URL link at the bottom of the page. Having the URL is obviously very handy. Is there a CHROME work around for this?

Thanks much,

Hey Terry,
Unfortunately, this function is only valid for Safari right now. We'll add this feature to our list of requests, but cannot give you any timeline, sorry
