How can I synchronise (exchange) documents?

iTunes File Sharing

  1. Open iTunes on your Mac
  2. Select the device to transfer your SlipBox file to (or from)
  3. Select the "Apps" tab
  4. Scroll down to the "File Sharing" section
  5. Select "SlipBox" in the "Apps" list
  6. Drag your SlipBox file into (or out of) the "Documents" field

Dropbox

  1. Link to your Dropbox account (on your mobile device, open "SlipBox" in the general Settings and change the "Active" switch in the Dropbox section to "ON")
  2. Open SlipBox
  3. Enter your Dropbox credentials (this creates a folder "SlipBox" in your Dropbox account; the contents of this folder will be shown in SlipBox)
  4. In the Document View of SlipBox you now have a section called "Dropbox" containing all the files in the "SlipBox" folder in your Dropbox account

 

Why is my Dropbox file not displayed by SlipBox?

Filenames that contain the characters ";", "~" or "\" cause problems when syncing with Dropbox. For this reason, they are not displayed by SlipBox.

 

How can I undo/redo an edit?

Changes in textual fields can be undone/redone on iOS devices in general with a shake gesture (that is, by shaking the device).

 

How does the lite version differ?

SlipBox lite is identical to the full version of SlipBox mobile except that it

  1. Displays only 20 slips in a slip-box
  2. Does not create slips with slip IDs higher than 20
  3. Displays only 2 slip-boxes in the iTunes File Sharing section and 2 slip-boxes in the Dropbox section
Note that 1 and 2 are actually different, because 1 simply means that a slip-box containing more than 20 slips, e.g. one created with the OS X version, still contains all slips, but only the 20 slips with the highest slip IDs are displayed. Thus, slips do not disappear, they are just not displayed by the lite version.
