On macOS, Ulysses keeps hourly backups for the last 12 hours, daily backups for the last seven days and weekly backups for the last six months of work.
On iOS, Ulysses keeps hourly backups for the last 6 hours, daily backups for the last 5 days and weekly backups for the last two months of work.
Backups are complete, stand-alone copies of your library — except for the External Folders section. We strongly advise you to create backups yourself if you work with External Folders in Ulysses. To ensure the safety of your work, you could create a Time Machine backup or use another 3rd party tool to back up your work.
On Mac, your backups are stored on your main volume inside your User’s directory. To access the folders on your hard drive backup, please proceed as follows:
This will open a window that resembles Ulysses main window but is marked with yellow tape — your backup browser. In the top-left corner, you can switch between the available backups, which are sorted by date and time.On iPhone or iPad
From there you can choose between the available backups.
Select the sheets and groups in question, right click and choose, for example, “Restore to iCloud” from the context menu. To restore an entire library section at a time, hold ⇧ (shift) and select all contained groups. This will work for both the iCloud and the “On My Mac” section of your library.On iPhone or iPad
Touch and hold a sheet or group and select “Restore to iCloud/On My iPad/On My iPhone”.
Even though Ulysses keeps its own backups, this doesn’t cover all risks, e.g., theft. Therefore, it is a good idea to backup your device regularly in a different location. On your Mac, you can use Apple’s Time Machine system, which automatically makes copies of your drive. It offers you the possibility of either storing your backups on a (dedicated) external drive, or on a network resource such as an Apple Time Capsule. To set up Time Machine, please follow these steps:
Apple also provides a support page, should you have further questions.
There’s also a way to back up your iOS devices to iCloud. To set this up, please follow these steps:
