I have synced 1-2 smart lists to my android device. Now, when sync back my android with windows, will the changes in my lists reflect back in my windows install? Like read state, ratings, bookmarks?

And what about eComics that I have deleted from my android after reading? Will the sync now delete them from my Windows install too?

What if I changed a book on both windows and android? Like read it half on both? Whose changes would be given the priority?

during sync:
1) all CHANGED information from the device is read
2) the information is put into PC database
4) smartlists are newly calculated
3) eComics on the device no longer in the db/smartlists are removed from the device
4) new ecomics are added to the device
5) all meta info on the device is updated and changed flag is set to false

This means that whenever you open a eComic on the device and then sync to pc the data from the device overwrites the pc data. Last device wins in other words.

Deleting a eComic on the device will NOT delete the eComic on the PC. Actually if you do nothing special it will get resynced back for now :)

Thanks for the reply. This was really helpful in understanding a lot of things.

p.s. Hoping for more sync options in later versions! ;-)

This is bug. I'll fix it in the next Android release.
Currently whenever you open a book on the device it will trump the current position on the desktop.

I like delete protection that this gives, but I do want bi-directional synch of new material. I actually add to my device regularly and have to bluetooth the files over and then synch them back to the device.
