I am a LOVER of DT! I use the latest DT3 and DTTG versions across all devices. My macOS, iOS, and iPadOS’ are all up to date!
My question is: why does DTTG on my iPad take SO LONG to update and sync? DTTG on my iPhone syncs almost immediately after I update files on my macOS. The iPad, however, takes forever (and sometimes never!).
It has been like this consistently since I started using an iPad with DTTG. I’ve wiped the app and started all over again. I’ve done all those obvious trouble shooting things. I really want this to work and I need it to, but it’s becoming unbearable on my iPad.
When I go into settings in DTTG and I hit the refresh button under Locations > iCloud it does nothing. The same with the cloud icon on the app display
How large are the databases (see File > Database Properties…) that are synchronized to the iPhone/iPad? And which iPhone/iPad do you actually use and which device do you use more often? E.g. the background sync is fully controlled by iOS depending on your usage of DEVONthink To Go. Finally, the behaviour of iCloud is not always predictable - sometimes it’s really fast, sometimes it lasts forever.
