Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents

If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.

  • You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
  • You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.

Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.

I wonder how Apple reacts on bug feedback. Still in Logic 8 I reported about a bug in the timeline. Recording long tracks with more than 60 Minutes the timeline switches from 0:59:00 minutes to 2:00:00. This is a very ugly bug I work with long concert live recordings. I have reported this bug more than a dozen times - even for Logic 8. But this bug still is alive in 9.1.7. No reaction and still no bug fix.

When you say "reported," are you reporting it via Apple's Bug Reporter site at

I hear rumblings that bug count from that site is being watched more closely these days, so that may help. And, as much as it offends me to suggest duplicating work, if you can get others to submit the bug as well, that might help.
