File change notifications from Dropbox

Version control pane showing
file change notifications from Dropbox
If you set up Dropbox Sync for your project, you will recieve notifications when files are changed on Dropbox externally. For instance, you may upload a new version of the paper text to Dropbox through their web interface or edit files on Dropbox folder mounted to your computer using your favorite text editor.

Notifications are shown in the Version contol pane. Red dot indicates that there are some changes and the list of changed files is shown in the Cloud Storage Sync section.

Pay attention that you may need to re-authorize to Dropbox in the settings page to switch notifications on.

Custom file version names

Sometimes it is not easy to identify file version that you need by its timestamp, especially when editing actively. Now you can replace timestamps with custom mnemonic names. Just select a file version in File History dialog and click in the timestamp text field.

Papeeria News, June 10: edit history player

We can now replay the sequence of edits between two file versions. Just open File Edit History dialog and select some version in the list. If there are any edits between the selected version and subsequent one, you'll see "Play edits" button in the top-right corner of the dialog. You can replay edits one by one and see edits made by you or your collaborators. Inserts are highlighted with green, deletes are marked with red.

See how it works in this video:

Papeeria News, May 6: Meet Google Drive Sync!

Google Drive Sync is now available in addition to Dropbox Sync on paid accounts. Together they are now called "Cloud Storage Sync" in our Version Control pane.

Sync works the same way for both services: one can export the whole project to cloud storage and import it back. Exported projects appear as sub-folders under a folder named Papeeria on Google Drive and Apps/Papeeria on Dropbox.

Papeeria News, Apr 17: meet File Edit History

We just have launched a new version control option. File Edit History which is built into Papeeria allows for listing, viewing and reverting to file versions produced hours or days ago.

This feature is enabled on all accounts and is available from Version Control pane.

In the process of file editing, we save new versions from time to time and saved versions become available in the history dialog. From the dialog, one can preview past versions and replace the live file with the contents of the selected version.

This also works for removed files, so you can now quickly recover a file if it was removed by accident.

The maximum age of versions in the edit history is limited with 24 hours on the free plan Epsilon and with 30 days on premium plan Delta.
