GedGap2Go and iCloud Syncing

from Paul, March 12 2018

I had received an email from John who had an issue with his GEDCOM file not being available on his iCloud folder for GedGap2Go to import.

I have noticed that sometimes the saving of GEDCOM (or other) files on my iCloud Drive can take awhile to sync across to an iOS device.

A work-around for GEDCOM files, is to open them in TextEdit and save them as a text file (txt extension) in your TextEdit iCloud folder.

The screenshot above shows that the PAW2X data.ged was saved at 1:34pm and is still waiting, whereas a text file PAW2X data2.txt was saved at 2:13pm and was available soon afterwards.

The PAW2X data.ged file was available later in the day (under an hour later).
