Sync All Data (Outline, ToDo Views, Formatting, etc)
Allow options in preferences to sync not just outline data, but ToDo views data, auto-formatting, themes, etc. Every time I create new ToDo lists I have to recreate them on all machines.

Sync of all aspects should be possible, but selectively.
It is not useful to have all mobile views available on the desktop or vice verca.
Perhaps tagging of information for selective sync would be cool - like:
- core information - like core views, formatting, and such
- else - non tagged - stays where it is created

Please add the possibility to sync views at least among desktop clients. Manual syncing among 4 working workstations is almost impossible!
Great idea. Import/xport option is old.

This is a shortcoming I still find hard to swallow. The cloud sync service is something I pay for additionally each year. The view sync would be a significant value addition. But it's frustrating having to repeat view customizations 3 times (windows, iPhone, iPad). I know there is the export and import view, but it's such a clunky way to do it.

This has been missing from the sync features for a while now.
No reason to sync between platforms, but for machines on the same platform we should have the option to sync everything.

Need this to have the same management views on the road as in my office.
MLO is great.. how can it possibly miss synched views. so what would be the point of android
@Paul Hylander: The MLO author has indicated elsewhere (https://mlo.uservoice.com/forums/9235-general/suggestions/1920491-make-custom-views-available-via-the-cloud-to-andr) that syncing views across platforms won't be possible, but that he is working on our being able to create custom views on Android (and iOS), which I'm also looking forward to.
As I mention in that other thread, I'd like to suggest here as well that it would be great if we could sync all data that can possibly be synced at least within the same platforms. So, with two Windows machines, being able to sync Views, Tabs, Auto-Formatting, etc. between those two machines. That data would not sync (per the author's statement) between Windows and another platform, such as Android. But it would be fantastic if, once custom Views are able to be created on Android, if those custom Views on one Android device would sync to MLO on other Android devices the user has.
I'm *really* liking MLO, and thanks for considering my suggestions! :)

Yes please. I am using Windows Pro version and have set up several customized views. I also use the Android Pro version. I have spent quite a bit of time creating custom views on Windows only to see that I cannot get those same views on Android. I can't even figure out how to edit the views that are in Android so that I could at least customize those. I understand that many settings don't translate between desktop and mobile versions, but I'm sure there is a large and important subset that do make sense on both mobile and desktop. At least provide way to edit view on mobile.

Many people use MLO on at least two machines (tablet/laptop plus home or work PC) and while the new features in V4.1 are great, it is tediuous having to replicate tabs and other settings on each machine.
Sync-ing the views would be great
At least sync the views. Logically should show up under More Views on iPhone version.
