Data sync
You can sync data between devices running Touchwriter or Touchwriter HD in both directions. You need a Dropbox account & iOS 5 or later to set up syncing.

If you already use Touchwriter or Touchwriter HD on multiple devices, pick your master data carefully as the master data will overwrite existing data on other devices.

Set up Syncing
Go to Touchwriter's settings and turn on "Sync Data" option. You will be prompted to sign in to Dropbox. After signing in, Touchwriter will let you either upload the data as master data (if this is your first device to sync), or sync with master data (your existing data will be overwritten in this case). Data will sync automatically afterwards whenever you launch Touchwriter.

Master Data
Master data becomes the starting point from which syncing is kept track. Keep in mind that master data will overwrite existing data when synced with other devices, so pick the data you want to preserve as master data.

Sync Data Manually
If you want to sync the data manually, tap the "action" button and tap "Sync Data" menu.

Reset Sync
If you want to discard the current master data and start over with the new one, follow the steps below:
  1. Turn off "Sync Data" option in all Touchwriter or Touchwriter HD that is currently in sync.
  2. Turn on "Sync Data" option in one instance of Touchwriter. Sign in to Dropbox.
  3. After signing in, you will be given an option to "Sync with Master Data" or "Upload Master Data". Choose "Upload Master Data" to upload the new master data.
  4. Sync other devices to the new master data.
