What issue do you have?

I use Joplin on 2 Android and 3 desktops, and it is a fantastic tool. However, in some cases, te sync does not work. In particular, the new version of a note is replaced by the local old version. In this case, I used the " Bienvenue chez les baptisés, Pholien" as a template to create "Prendre Lucien par la main" this afternoon on one laptop at home. Tonight, in another house, I start Joplin, and while it added the "copy" to the Music>Archive directory, it kept the old "Pholien" note instead of replacing it with the "Lucien" one. It said the last edit was in Februari 2024, while the "previous version" was correctly of this afternoon (see screen capture). Maybe this is a difficult bug to solve, because at one moment it was still updating in teh background, while the old note may have been open. But still I didn't edit it, so it should at least see a conflict if a newer version of a note is downloaded from the cloud. I hope I made yself clear ?

Keep up with the fantastic app, I love joplin.


To be more clear : in the note info it says "created 22/02/2024", "updated 23/02/2024", but when selecting older versions, the last before one is from ...08/05/2024.
Fortunatley, the restore function works like a charm as well, so I could recover it.
