Synchronizing (Windows/Mac)



(the amount and locations of icons can differ between versions and because of changes made in the layout)

Synchronize

The Synchronize function is one of the most advanced functions in MusicReader. It is used to combine and transfer files between several computers and iPads.  This can especially be useful in big orchestras or when using several computers with MusicReader. The Synchronize function combines the libraries of two computers at once, leaving only the newest versions and making the libraries similar. Note that MusicReader must be active and they have to be on a wireless network to function properly.

If you are having problems with syncing then please check the possible solution at the end of this section.

How to use Synchronize:

1. Click the Synchronize icon
2. A panel appears showing several options, select the computer you want to synchronize with
3. Press the Next Step button
