Downloaded new version ... but the visibility problem is still there 🙄

Just to describe what I do and why it's important for me:

on tablet I prepare my geocaches in different folders. Some caches I hide (deactivate visibility) to see only those caches I want to solve when I'm outdoor with my mobile.
At the moment sync works good for folders and points ... but all caches on my later synced mobile are invisible.

Anyone any idea?
Is there anything I do wrong or is it just a bug (or maybe a feature 😁)

You could put the caches you want to be visible in a separate folder. And then only show this on the phone.

we decided not to transfer visibility state to allow a unique set of visible items on every unique device.
And what about order of folders and groups (for tracks and for points)? They doesn't sync by design or just not implemented yet?

This is really good question Erelen. I personally suffer for many years because of inability to sort folders internally :). Unfortunately, there is still no internal parameter that keep folders in some "sort" order. The result is, that in certain situations, result on the second device may not match exactly. Quite unfortunate.

Probably best should be to sort folders always by it's name. For now. I'll think about it.

They're not sorted? Seriously...? On my device, folders and groups always seem to be sorted by name, even when I create a new one. That can't really be "coincidence", can it?

Of course, they are sorted ::) .. sorry, I was confused by Erelen's question because it looked like they are not. My mistake.

Oki, steps, back ... @Erelen, you see items sorted other than by name on the second device?

After some time, order on my tablet become the same as on the phone. But now I reproduce problem: reinstall Locus 4 on my tablet and delete Locus/data/Database. And after first sync ("Full download" mode) I see different order again.

And I see pattern: on my phone my "conventional" order - english named folders (in alphabetical order) at first and cyrillic folders (in alphabetical order too) after them.

But on the tablet cyrillic folders are first and then - english.

Hi, so I finally tried out the sync on one of my phones. The thing I noticed is that when clicking on the sync icon, the next screen is always the same, no matter whether you already synced or not. It always says "Start" which is confusing - seeing this after you already synced for the first time makes you think it didn't work. Also, there's still the button "Later" which makes no sense after you already started syncing.
I think that, after you set up sync, a click on the icon should immediately bring up the settings, best with the Advanced Options integrated.

One more thing: On this phone I have two Google accounts. Now as I aready logged in with one of those accounts in the store, so sync used that one without asking. Is that a restriction by Google that you can only use one Google account in the whole app? I would understand, but if it's possible to choose separately, that would be more flexible.
