I'm not sure if this answers your Q, but I also hold my tune files on W10 (I have over 4000 of them ) - I notate them using MuseScore and save a copy as a .pdf file in a folder listed in the directory. These can then be imported into Mobile Sheets Pro via the Companion app.  I do them singly, but I assume the Batch Import facility allows you to transfer a lot in one go.   Like you, I also use more than one tablet:  I have MSP installed on a second Acer Android tablet as a spare in case of failure of Acer No. 1, so once the collection has been loaded on No. 1, I make a backup, save it on the PC and carry out a 'restore' on tablet No. 2.  The same process (i.e. 'restore' from a current backup) is used when my band colleagues need to update the revised tune collection on their tablets - which also have MSP installed - to ensure we all have the latest versions of the material.

You don't mention the format in which your files are saved on W10, but I hope the above is useful.

Thanks . I was looking to build set lists and other files on wn-10 (not companion) then transfer finished database to androids.

Set up the library the way you want on the Windows 10 device, then go to Settings->Backup and Restore->Backup Library in MobileSheets, create a .msb file either on the device or in the cloud, transfer that .msb file to the Android devices, and then restore the backup file in MobileSheetsPro. You can also restore straight from the cloud if preferred. For future changes, you can use Sync Library->Sync to another device on the libray screen to push changes from the Windows 10 device to the Android devices (you can also sync to a cloud folder but the direct WiFi sync is much faster). For this, you'd want to set the Windows 10 device as the server and sync type set to "Update Client". Let me know if you have any questions.

Mike,
Thanks for the reply you seem to know the system well.

Did save &  distribute backup .MSB to three  Fire 10's.  Unfortunately Switched Library did not transfer with MSB file.
Had to use This "PC\Fire\Internal storage\Android\data\com.zubersoft.mobilesheetspro\files" and batch copy all files via USB connection.
After some goofing with Settings\Storage\"Expose Database File" realized that was the 'hidden files' option. Managed to find the hidden & 'switched'  components.

Then experimented with "Sync Library->Sync"  once I figured out 'switched' option -- works great thanks ...


Is there any way I can 'sync' multiple tablets (clients) simultaneously from one server?  (one to many).

Good job --- want to keep you on speed dial!

Are you an volunteer or Zubersoft employee?

If you use the Switch Library feature, you actually have to create a separate library backup file per library. There isn't currently an option to backup all libraries at once, although this is something I can look into supporting in the future. If you restore a library backup, it will restore into whatever the currently selected library is, so you want to make sure to uncheck the option to restore settings when restoring to each individual library.

You can't currently sync multiple clients to one server. There is only support for synchronizing one device at a time. Having said that, you can technically sync multiple devices to a cloud folder at the same time, but if you do this, I would highly recommend using a one-way sync to only pull down changes from the folder, as you wouldn't want to try to modify the folder while tablets are actively synchronizing to it.

I'm the developer of MobileSheetsPro and Zubersoft is just a one-man team - myself Smile
