UX: How do you fix file conflicts due to WebViewSync issues?


I have had a few issues with WebViewSync losing the connection to the TRIRIGA server with the following exception… I suspect this is due to local networking issues. However, when either pushing the files or starting the sync process again, I often get a conflict on the file I’m working on… I have found the easiest way to resolve these conflicts is to:

  • 1. Log in to the TRIRIGA application.
  • 2. Go to Tools > Web View Designer.
