With PDF Expert, you can sync a folder from cloud storage using the smart 2-way sync. The files from a synced folder are available locally on your device so you can work with them when you’re offline. This way, you can sync the same folder on your iPhone and iPad, and PDF Expert keeps files up to date between both your devices as well as cloud storage.
Note: PDF Expert for Mac doesn’t support 2-way sync. However, you can easily sync all files from Mac using cloud storage.
You can also sync a folder once you open it:
Note: The Sync button becomes active if you select folders which haven't been synced yet.
Once the sync is complete, the full copy of the synced folder is available in the Synced folders tab or folder on your iPad or iPhone. All new files and modifications within the synced folder automatically sync with the cloud storage server and vice versa. The automatic sync is enabled in PDF Expert settings by default.
