Hi, yesterday I updated to Adobe Animate CC 2018 and since then FLA files don't sync on my Dropbox folder.
This happens on my MacBook pro (High Sierra: latest version)
These files are not open in the app and no Adobe apps are open in the background and still, these files just don't sync.
It's been 24 hours since they were able to sync and I really have to sync these files ASAP.
BTW, I've tried the following things:
If I place the FLA files inside a ZIP file - the ZIP file SYNCS
If I make a copy of the FLA file - the copy DOESN'T SYNC either
If I change the file extension from FLA to anything else - the file STILL DOESN'T SYNC
We are experiencing the exact same issue since the update. It's obviously an issue with the file type and lies on some changes Adobe has made. It doesn't affect the PC version files, just Mac ones. So between Adobe and Apple there is something that is causing Dropbox to struggle with the files.
Yes, it's very annoying, but at the end of the day, the fault may lie with Adobe (or Apple), but we've already had to stop using Dropbox and use an alternative syncing method for the folders related to these jobs.
Thing is, the Dropbox sync worked until now (even on High Sierra) with FLA files,
once I updated to Animate CC 2018 it stopped working.
So the change that started all this, is updating an Adobe application.
So it may be Adobe's fault... or Dropbox's... or Apple's 😉
It doesn't work after restart.
It doesn't work even if all of the Adobe apps are closed.
If I take an FLA file which doesn't sync and I create a copy of it, the copy doesn't sync either.
(So while you could argue that the original file has been opened by the app and thus locked, the copy was never opened by it and still cannot sync)
