You can continue to work in your local sync copy when you are offline or simply cannot connect to the location of the parent file. When working in an offline state, your changes to the sync copy are cached locally on your workstation and will not synchronize until the file returns online or reestablishes a connection with the parent file.
To work offline:
- In Working Papers, open the sync copy that you want to work on while offline.
- On the ribbon, click SmartSync | Work Offline.
The sync copy switches to an offline status. If you do not have an active internet connection, the file will switch to offline automatically.
When you return the file to an online status, your changes will synchronize with the parent file and other sync copies.
To work online:
- In Working Papers, open the offline sync copy.
- On the ribbon, click SmartSync | Work Online.
The sync copy switches to an online status. If you made changes to a document that was modified while you were offline, you may need to resolve synchronization conflicts.
