Sync only making partial update to file

Anyone else seeing the same? Happened to me once just now. A update on a file from my phone only showed up partially on my pc when I checked 1 hour later.

Steps to reproduce

Have sync on, and the same vault open on pc (W10) and phone (android). On your phone, make an edit to an existing note. Observe the change in the note on pc. Only a part of the change was copied.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

My new changes to show up on my pc.

Actual result

Only the first 6 words out of 18ish were shown on my pc 1 hour later when I came back to my pc.

Additional information

Perhaps you closed Obsidian on your phone before it had the chance to sync the file? There’s no background sync currently.

Next time, can you kindly also include the sync logs from the phone? Thanks
