As the title asks, is it possible to migrate the settings for an account to a new phone? Would hate to have to set it up again..

I think a lot of people forget to check where they are before replying to things (me especially). Serious replies show up in shitposts and are then apologized for, joke comments are made in communities that are more serious, etc.

I was thinking it'd be nice to have the option to make me click through a confirmation of the community I'm in before crafting a data-driven response to something in an askmelolz group.

Bonus points for making it big and colorful :D

Sync grabs images using an option for max length of 1500px, so the super long images are just a smattering of pixels that barely represent the original image.

I can't find a way in the app to get a better quality version. I end up opening a web browser to view.

Edit: I'm pretty sure that I made a mistake here, in that I tried to use my main credentials to sign in and transfer, but I actually bought the lifetime on a different account. The likelihood that I confused myself with my paranoia is likely high.

Hey all. I'm having this issue where a bunch of content replies disappear on me. Or, rather, they are in my inbox, but when I click them to go reply and vote on them in the comments of the post where they are, they are completely missing from the thread/conversation. So to make it clear, they never disappear from my inbox, but they just can't be seen in the comments section itself, under the associated post.

Is this a bug or expected behavior?

Thanks for any help.

Links that open natively in Sync (like news articles) are often riddled with ads. Is there any way for the Sync shell to open through a Firefox based browser, which includes native ad block?

I'm not sure if this is related to what browsers I have on my phone. I do have one chromium based browser (kiwi) installed, and if getting rid of that would fix the problem I could look into deleting it and leaving only FF on my phone. But I'm not sure if it's related.

When Samsung last updated One UI several months ago, myself and many other Samsung users (and Pixel users on Android 14 as well, judging by the replies) encountered a bug where swiping posts closed showed only a black background until fully closed, after which the content one would expect to see would appear.

Last night, One UI updated to 6.1 on my device, and when I used Sync this morning, I noticed that the black background bug is no longer happening.

!Unfortunately I now need to re-learn my navigation gestures because Samsung apparently thinks it's fine to force people to completely re-learn how they navigate their phone overnight...!<

I've added some instances to the instance filters, yet I continue seeing those instances. Is there something else that I need to do to block entire instances?

I'm seeing within Sync a number of users have profile pics that show up on their posts. Is there a way in Sync to set that?

I am trying to block all posts that are links to YouTube on my feed. I tried domain filtering for all 4 of the domains that the YouTube app auto opens. But I still see YouTube link posts. I tried logging out and back in, no luck. Anyone know?

I set the polling interval to never but I still get notifications for some reason. I know I can disable the notifications at the system level, but I would rather the app doesn't do the polling at all currently. Android 14, Pixel 7a.

I'm looking to make links stand out by any means. I find myself always opening them and having something like YouTube or other video services open and start playing while in places where that's not ideal.

I've spent quite some time trying to set up the font settings with Sync, and it always seems like the ideal font size would be right between two settings (typically Regular and Medium). I have tried adjusting it in many different ways, also adjusting the base font size, etc but just can't seem to get it dialed in the way I want. Could you maybe add some settings in between the ones that are there now? Or maybe just let us select the size in points directly? Thanks.

I've been using Sync for Lemmy in conjunction with this Lemmy.world account since it first hit the Play store on Android.

For the last month or so, I can no longer successfully upvote or downvote posts or comments within the app. This seems to have been around the time or shortly after the votes changed colors from orange/blue to blue/red for a general time reference; I'm not suggesting that update broke anything, but I wouldn't rule it out.

Anyone else have this problem?

Solution: I had enabled the setting indicating my account as a bot account. I mistakenly thought this meant I wanted to view bot posts, not that I was indicating my account as a bot account.

Thanks all, glad things are working as intended!

I think that's what it says but that's the error I'd say I get about 40% of the time when trying to view image posts. Is this a sync thing or something else?

Question in the title. I don't want to see posts from lemmynsfw, but I don't want to just blanket disable NSFW stuff either since the tag gets used for other things. Is there a way to do this or do I have to individually block each community that shows up in my feed?

I'm unable to visit a community using the sidebar suggested method of searching for "!community@instance" convention.

Is this normal?

Can anyone try going to !newbrunswick@lemmy.ca and let me know if it works? It won't load for me and I tried on an account on that instance and still nothing.

Edit: maybe it's a fluke, or maybe it's a Samsung thing somehow?

It appears that Sync sorts by numbers > Capital Case > lower case, as noted by !RimWorldPorn being sorted above !android rather than with !rimworld in the subscriptions list as I would have expected.

It's a small thing but just seemed odd. Is this intended?

App version is v24.03.26-14:56 (122)

I can access other forums on lemmy.dbzer0 with Sync, and I can access !piracy from a web browser and other apps so I know the community isn't banned. Seems like Sync can't connect to !piracy specifically.

Is this intentional? Is anyone else having this issue?

Edit: Nevermind, I forgot the smooth-brained lemmy.world admins blocked this community. Time to make another account haha

Is there supposed to be some way to update the default sort settings in Sync? I can do it on desktop on my user account, but I'm not sure if this is possible within the app. Thanks.

Comments that are nested too deep simply become unreadable.

I'm writing this from the post page. Nothing here tells me who I'm signed in as. Same thing for comments. If I want to find out that answer, I have to back out all the way to the timeline. I wish when I was making additive actions like posting and commenting that I could see which account I have selected. "Posting as ..." Or "Commenting as ..." gray and out of the way or something.

I know it'd be problematic to have an account chooser present there because you may be on one account that can view a particular post and switch to an account that doesn't federate that instance, but knowing is good enough for me.
