I am refering to a folder in collections with a synchronise icon in front:

lr_synced_folder

Stopping and starting synchronise from the cloud icon:

start-syncing.png.img

Also starts synchronising the photo.

Lightroom sync should stay on all the time, unless you actively turn it off. It can turn off if you're changing catalogs a lot as there's usually one main catalog that's connected. Once a photo is added to a collection, it should start to sync. It's not immediate as the Smart preview needs to generate and upload.

It works like it should now.

 

Perhaps the "Stopping and starting synchronise from the cloud icon" made it work automatically again.
