I'm committed to MacDive now and I'm using it as my log. Maybe I have developed a bad habit, but my workflow is to have MacDive macOS and iOS open at the same time and use them to enter the data they're best at. One of the issues I had early on was not knowing exactly when either app would choose to synchronize (beyond the Cloud Sync interval set in preferences), so I have gotten into the habit of syncing when I open & close either app so I can ensure my most recent changes have been updated to the cloud.

A couple of things:

Can we have a key sequence for Synchronization? Also, can Synchronization have its own icon on the toolbar? Either / both of those would make my workflow a little easier. (I would also advocate for adding Synchronization to the Menu Bar (perhaps under File)). I think it's an important enough function to consider all of these

Second, for discussion, it seems to me that MacDive should try to sync when the user quits the macOS app. I didn't appreciate that it wasn't doing this until I watched the interaction between the two apps.

It's already in the quick toolbar menu, but I've added it to the File menu as well, with a shortcut (option + command + S).

The reason this is not done is because it can take some time. If you're trying to quit and it decides to hang for some period of time, it would be annoying. At this point you are telling the app to quit, so it quits. For example, think about if you are on a slow connection and you have a bunch of data and images to sync.

Thank you! That will be helpful.

I've actually just added this to the toolbar as well, to make it more convenient. As well as splitting out the common download functions to their own menu there.
