My File Won't Save And The App Says To Check My Internet Connection. What Do I Do?

Even when you’re connected to Wifi, iAnnotate may still share this pop-up. Here are a few ways to resolve it:

 

a. Re-save the Document Manually: 
  1. Open the document that needs saving and tap its orange tab.
  2. Select "Save to"
  3. Choose the location you’d like to save the document to.

b.  Re-name of the File

  1. Open the document that needs saving and tap its orange tab.
  2. Select "Rename"
  3. Adjust the file’s name and tap “Save”

(Pro-tip: we recommend changing the name slightly by adding a number at the end, etc.)

 

c. Replace the File with the “Open a Copy” Feature
  1. Open the document that needs saving and tap its orange tab.
  2. Tap "Open a Copy". This will open a new copy of the file in a new tab.
  3. Begin working from this copy to replace your existing file.

Pro-tip: If you’re saving the copied file to a separate storage location, it will have the exact same name as the original, so we recommend renaming the copy (e.g. add “Copy” or a number to the copied file). If you open a copy in the same storage location iAnnotate will add a number to the end indicating it is a copy. 

 

d. Save the File to a Separate Storage Location.
  1. Open the document that needs saving and tap its orange tab.
  2. Select "Save to"
  3. Choose a different location you’d like to save the document to.

 

e. Remove and Re-adding the Storage Location. 

Remove the Storage Location:

(If you use local files, ensure they are backed up before removing the storage connection)

  1. Navigate to the iAnnotate Library
  2. Select the Storage Location you’re saving to by tapping the grey circle
  3. Tap the trash can icon
  4. Tap “Delete”

Re-add the Storage Location:

  1. Navigate to the iAnnotate Library
  2. Tap the plus icon in the bottom right corner
  3. Select “Add Storage”
  4. Choose the Storage Location you’d like to re-add.
  5. Name the Storage Location and tap “Save”
  6. Tap on the storage connection icon. Then follow the prompts to log in to your cloud storage location.
