When you use the Developer in a multi-user environment and you are working online, the Developer (client) installation on your local computer automatically synchronizes with the content server every minute. The Library then updates to display all of the changes that have been checked in to the server, including new documents (that are checked in) and folders, changes to folder and document names or properties, deleted documents, and so on.
The Outline Editor also displays the results of this synchronization, except for changes that were made to the outline structure (the links between the documents in the outline). To display these structural changes in the Outline Editor, you must refresh the display manually using the Refresh command on the View menu or by pressing F5. You can also manually refresh the Library using the same command or key.
The Library also automatically synchronizes when you use commands on the Document menu that involve the Library, such as Check In, Check Out, Get, and so on. However, you will still need to perform a refresh in the Outline Editor to see any changes in the content structure.
Note: Performing a manual refresh (F5) from the Library does not immediately refresh new (empty) folders that were created by other authors. The client-to-server synchronization will refresh the view of folders. However, new folders that contain documents will become visible when you perform a manual refresh.
