CLOUDFS plugin copy back to the cloud

Post by *nirmelamoud » 2018-12-07, 15:34 UTC

hi,

in TC cloud plugin, when I open an excel spreadsheet from google cloud for example, I update the excel, and when I close it TC will ask me if I want to copy it back, that's great and make the experience smooth, but there are two minor issues
1. TC does not take the focus for this dialog, so if its hidden behind some other windows, you wont see it, and you might forget that you need to do that until its too late (i.e shut down the laptop, open the document from another computer etc) - I suggest TC will gain focus to this window - maybe need to do it few times, because maybe if you do this, and excel still it back since it really did not exit yet, etc
2. if I have two excel documents open at the time, one from TC and one not related , TC does not notify me to copy the file back until I close the second (last ) excel , this is bad for the same reasons - see item #1 - not sure if its possible, if you can get an event from excel for this situation , I guess its specific to Microsoft office -they way they module processes.

Thanks

It may be possible if you change Excel behavior from MDI to SDI.
In SDI mode every workbook is opened by a single excel process.

and:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3165211/how-to-force-excel-to-open-in-a-new-instance-by-default

Background: if excel is in MDI mode, the one and only process is still alive until you close the last workbook.
In this case TC has no chance to detect that the closed document needs to be uploaded again (..it could be saved and not closed).

Theoretical thought (i don't work with cloud documents), so no guarantee that it is working this way, but may be worth to give it a try.
