How To Transfer Files Using iTunes File Sharing

iTunes is not just for music! iTunes has a File Sharing feature that allows you to quickly and easily transfer files back and forth between your computer and our apps on your iPad. Read on, and see the screenshots below!

On your desktop computer, launch iTunes, and connect your iPad to the computer using the Lightning to USB cable that you use to charge your iPad. Once connected, a small iPad icon will appear in the top left of the iTunes screen. Click on this icon to see various information about your iPad, then click on File Sharing under the Settings section to see a list of apps that can transfer files between your iPad and computer. Click on the name of the app on the left side to reveal the [AppName] Documents area on the right side.

To copy files from your computer to the selected app on your iPad: Drag your files from your computer into the [AppName] Documents window. You can drag individual files, a group of selected files, or a folder of files. (Please refer to the app's User Guide for details on the supported file types.)

To copy files from the selected app to your computer: Drag your files from the [AppName] Documents window to the desktop of the computer. (Windows users need to select the files, then click on the “Save to…” button to move files to their computer.) 

If you’re copying a lot of documents you’ll see a progress bar showing the files being copied. Allow the transfer to complete, then disconnect your iPad from the computer.

If you transferred files from your computer to the iPad, the next time you launch any of our apps you’ll see the New Files (X) indicator in the top left of the main Cases Screen. Tap on this New Files button to select the documents, then choose a Case Folder to import them into.

NOTE: The same iTunes File Sharing process can be used to copy an Archive of an entire Case Folder, complete with its organizational structure and document annotations, from your iPad to a desktop computer. This is useful to create a backup of a Case Folder, or to duplicate a Case Folder on another iPad.
