How to Sync Your Phrases

How to Sync Your Phrases

Each time you run dotScribe on your desktop, it automatically syncs with your Online Library as the "Starting Client" window is displayed.

While live sync is planned, it is currently unavailable. If you add a new phrase or edit a phrase in the dotScribe online library, you will need to sync the online library with your dotScribe app for the phrases to appear in your dotScribe suggestions window. 

The best way to sync your online library is to exit the dotScribe app and reopen it. You can exit the dotScribe app by opening the dotScribe menu on your taskbar and choosing Exit.

You can also use the BETA "Sync Phrases" button located in the dotScribe taskbar menu but we are working out some bugs that some may encounter. If selected, it may take up to two minutes to sync with your online library. The square dotScribe icon on your taskbar will disappear once sync is completed. If there are any errors after Sync Phrases is completed, we recommend you either restart your computer or use the shortcut CTRL + SHIFT + ESC to close all instances of dotScribe in your task manager.
