Sync with Dropbox

Warning! Before a Nebo upgrade, please sync all your notebooks. If you automatically update your apps, regularly sync your notebooks to avoid losing any data.

Manual sync

Tap the sync icon to synchronize your notebooks. Automatic synchronization is not possible at the moment.
However, if a notebook is modified with another device, the sync icon will automatically switch to , letting you know you have to tap it to download the latest version.

Version and conflict management

In case of conflict between notebook versions, the most recent file is kept. If you use several devices, the most recent version of the notebook is the one that will be synchronized.


Dropbox allows you to view your notebooks, as *.nebo files. But note that these files cannot be opened or modified outside of Nebo.


If you delete a notebook or a collection locally, it will be immediately deleted in the cloud. If you have several devices, the deletion will be done at next sync on the second device (unless you add content to the notebook ‘to be deleted’), but it can be restored using Dropbox's history.

How to restore deleted files:

How to restore the previous version of your notebook in Dropbox:


Notebooks and folders can be renamed or moved. Such changes are immediately updated in the cloud. If you have several devices, the change will be done at next sync.

Enabling or disabling

In the settings menu, choose whether you want the sync feature to be Enabled or Disabled.


Open the Settings menu and choose Disconnect Dropbox.
