I have a handful of epubs I downloaded outside of the iBooks Store and read them across two different macs and an iPhone.
For reasons I cannot explain some books’ data (highlights, notes, place in book) will sync across the devices while others do not.
The following options are turned on in my iPhone settings:
- Sync Bookmarks and Notes
- Sync Collections
On both macs I have the following turned on:
- Sync bookmarks, highlights, collections across devices
I have not used syncing via iTunes. So some books sync via iCloud while others do not.
Despite syncing turned on, I cannot get a Macbook Pro to sync with the highlights on the iPhone for certain book. I drag the epub into iBooks on the Macbook and it thinks its a “new” book. FWIW, I have a Mac Mini that seems to sync fine.
How can I correct this?
Macbook Pro Intel Core i7 3.1 Ghz OS X 10.11.4
Mac Mini 2.3 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 OS X 10.11.4
iPhone SE 64GB iOS 9.3.1
Thanks in advance.
