Opening a Synchronized Copy of a File

Once a local sync copy has been created, open it like any other Working Papers file.

  1. Open Working Papers.
  2. On the File tab, click Computer.
  3. Click Browse to locate the synchronized copy of the file. Click OK.

The file is opened. All sync changes are applied to the client file.

  • If the file was open recently, find it on Recent Files.
  • Working on sync copies in Working Papers without SmartSync does not sync changes to the parent.

Files on SmartSync Server display on the SmartSync Server place displayed when opening Working Papers. Click the refresh button () to ensure the latest list of files is displayed. Type client file information to search for the client file on SmartSync Server. The search function uses type-ahead technology to start searching as soon as you start typing. Select the user icon () to display files for Any User, Current User or Specific User. Files are only displayed if the user has permissions on the server to view them.

Selecting a file creates a SmartSync copy of the file or opens a local sync copy of the file. Since SmartSync files must match the version of SmartSync that you are running, accessing a parent file from a lower version displays a message requesting a conversion. Once the parent file is converted it cannot be accessed by other users running earlier versions of SmartSync.
