Synchronizing Dreamweaver settings between two PCs does not work at all

I installed Dreamweaver CC (latest version) on my PC and configured it, including several sites. I activated the synchronizing feature for all settings.

 

Then I installed it on my laptop and although I was asked whether I want to download my settings from the cloud (which I confirmed) no settings arrived.

 

Also when I click the synchronize button or menu, it only says "Synchronized <date/time>" and nothing happens.

 

I already read the documentation and I think I did everything correctly.

 

Is there a bug in the latest version?

1. Restart your computer.

2. Open DW.

3. Go to Preferences > Sync Settings.

4. Tick the box to import Sync Settings from the cloud.

5. Hit Apply Updates button.

6. Restart DW.

Thanks, I will try that. But in my settings I only see "import from previous version of Dreamweaver". Do you mean that checkbox?

I'm on version 20.1.  See screenshot from Edit > Preferences > Sync Settings.

I tried it today. It didn't work.

 

I see the "Apply updates" button and when I click it something is happening (I see the wait cursor), but no settings arrive.

 

I use 20.2.

You won't see anything until you restart Dreamweaver.

That goes without saying. Didn't make any difference.

 

I now synchronize the settings completely manually (i.e. I look at both monitors and see that everything looks identical).
