!!BUG!! Conflicted Copy
I read and annotate my PDFs located in my Dropbox. After leaving the PDF, the Adobe app automatically uploads (replaces) the entire file to Dropbox. Great!
The problem: Sometimes I get a Conflicted Copy. That basically means that it cannot replace the file because it's being open in a different program, so Dropbox preserves the both files and renames the newest one Conflicted Copy while retaining the original as it was.
The suspected cause is quite obvious. The file isn't open in another program but in the very same one that wants to make the change. The PDF is around 15MB. Adobe doesn't have an upload bar which would indicate the % of how much of the file has been uploaded. It just doesn't show!
When I press back when reading, it brings me to my Recent. After, about 20–30 seconds it says file uploaded successfully. However, if I'd pressed Home instead of Back, I am not sure would it be uploading.
So the problem in the nutshell is that you read a book, exit, the upload fails sometimes (but you are unawares), you return to read book, upload resumes (you are still unawares) and boom Conflicted Copy is created.
It really creates a lot of hassle. For example my conflicted copy contained 3 hours if my new annotations.
I would suggest making the upload process entirely visible, so we know when it's uploaded.
