Wifi sync issue possible clue found

Post by glenn59 »

I have been syncing for years now. After resolving a few issues in the beginning, sync between various laptops and desktops has performed flawlessly. However, EPIM was hanging on the "Notes synchronizing" step indefinitely. I remembered I placed a picture in one of the notes recently. I deleted that picture, and the sync issue went away. The picture was copied from a JPEG, and pasted under the text of the note. Experimented with relocating the picture to another leaf and deleting it from under the text of the original note. Issue still remained. Deleted the note from both the new leaf and deleting it from under the text of the original leaf, and issue resolved.
Maybe it is the picture format? Maybe the file is too large? I'm not a programmer so for the time being I'll wait to hear from the devs who know way more about these things than I do! :wink:

Most likely that's the picture's size. We'll try to improve synchronization in that regard in the next update.
Android version of EssentialPIM. Keep all your data in sync!
