+1 on this. I was working the other day on a laptop I don’t use super often, and although I’d had it open for a bit, connected to the internet, and with Agenda running, I had no way of knowing whether or not Agenda had fully synced up. I was on rather spotty library wifi, so I was afraid to make changes to existing items in Agenda lest I start a sync conflict.
Speaking of which, how are sync conflicts handled? Ulysses saves both versions separately, and marks them in red so you know to resolve it. So if you have to work in a copy of Ulysses with unknown sync status (or totally offline), you can be reasonably sure you’ll be able to sort it out later.
Sure, in a perfect world everything just syncs magically, but omnipresent internet connections are not here yet. If you find yourself with spotty or no wifi and a device that hasn’t been online in a few days, it can spend quite some time “catching up” and it would be very useful to know when it’s safe to use Agenda.
iCloud Drive (unlike Dropbox) is unfortunately quite opaque about what it’s syncing, but even just a little notation like
last synced on [date & time] somewhere in Agenda would be incredibly useful.
