Problem Description + Screenshots

Whenever I attempt to sync nested entities together and I do not want them to become folders, this happens:

They wouldn’t sync at all and I was hoping that they would.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Set up sync that the nested entities does not become folders


  • Are you able to reproduce this bug reliably?
    Yes, setting up the syncing to not become folders makes it into this.
  • Can you make this bug happen with a clean timeline file?
    Yes, it seems to happen no matter what file I use.
  • Does it only happen with a specific timeline file?

I will also be emailing support regarding this issue.

I have replied to your email with a more detailed response in regards to your file, but in case anyone else has this issue, as Ulysses can’t have sheets/documents nested within others (only within groups/folders), then if you have your sync settings set up where this will occur, the sync won’t work and will continue to say something needs syncing, even if you click “Sync Now”.

I’ve found a bit of a work around in that if I make the sheets in Ulysses it syncs it. However, I noticed that it changes the order of the sheets when they are nested together.

I sorta wished that if the items are nested together, they should remain manually sorted in order (the parent followed by children) so this could be a viable workaround to this dilemma
