Sync with iPad

Kári Olsen Jul 22, 2013 01:50PM PDT

I need to know when it will be possible to sync direct between Mac and iPad.
I love this program, but there are other programs that makes the sync with no problem.

Hi Kári,
Currently it is possible to sync Outline+ and Outline for Mac via Dropbox and Box.
Do you experience any difficulties while syncing the changes made in Outline on iPad to your Mac version?

Does this mean that you can't sync with iPad/desktop Mac and OneNote at the same time?

Yes, please to instructions! That would be very helpful as I am staring at a brick wall when it comes to syncing across devices and OneNote at the same time.

Many thanks

here you are.

Download and install Dropbox to your PC where you use OneNote and to your Mac. Create Dropbox account on
Then complete sharing in Outline on iPad - long tap on the notebook's cover, choose Sharing > Dropbox > Enter your credentials.
Your notebook will get shared to Dropbox.

On your Mac open Outline, click + in the navigation tree next to NOTEBOOKS, choose Open from Mac > Browse for your notebook files in the Dropbox folder on your Mac.

The same with OneNote on your PC.

Illustrated instructions are in the Getting Started notebook.

I hope this info helps. Does it work for you? Please let me know.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi Val

Thanks for the instructions, I can now sync my notebooks created in Outline with Mac and iPad! A great start.

I shall keep experimenting with the OneNote sync aspect, I'm sure I'll get there in the end.

Thank you again.
