Sync is enabled, but nothing is syncing

Choosing the correct repository

When you login to Panic Sync in one of our apps, you’ll be presented with two different options as to what apps you want to sync with.

  1. Transmit & Coda
  2. Just Transmit, or Just Coda

If you don’t see your data after logging in, you may have chosen two different options. Make sure to choose the same option in both apps in order to see your data. To change ths after logging in, log out of Panic Sync, then login again.

Panic Sync keeps pulling down old data

To start with, get all of your info exactly how you want it– make sure sites are up to date, groups are good, and everything has the correct credentials. Now we’ll tell the server that this data is current.

In Coda 2 or Transmit 5, open Preferences > Sync. Hold the Option key on your keyboard and click the Sync Now button, then click the Reset Sync button that appears.

In Transmit iOS or Coda iOS, tap the gear icon to open Preferences > Panic Sync. Tap and hold on the Sync Now button until the Reset Sync Dialog appears.

The Register button is greyed out and won’t let me create a new account

For now, Prompt will only sync with Prompt. More info over here.

Panic Sync won’t sync files.
