org-mode and orgzly sync issues

*

I sync my org files between Emacs on my desktop and orgzly on my phone using syncthing.

At the moment I'm finding they get out of sync reasonably frequently, and you get an error in orgzly saying 'Local and remote notebooks are different'.

My steps to resolve are:

  • on desktop, copy `GTD.org` to `GTD.org.desktop`
  • in orgzly, from the Notebooks view, choose to override remote notebook
  • that means syncthing syncs `GTD.org` back on to the deskop
  • then in Emacs, do an ediff of `GTD.org` and `GTD.org.desktop` and pick out the bits you want from each
  • things will sync OK from there
