Sync problems with gitlab project ID

OS: W8.1
PsychoPy version: 2020.1.3
Standard Standalone? (y/n):y
What are you trying to achieve?:
I have created a project using Builder and linked to a Pavlovia project. Later on, I removed the Pavlovia project and I created a new one from Builder and synchronise with the original PsychoPy file. Everything works fine until I close PsychoPy and open it again. Then it seems the ID to the Pavlovia project is lost.

Then I go to the icon “Find existing studies online at Pavlovia”, look for my project at Pavlovia, select the local root folder and press the button Sync in the dialog. It works and really syncs the project with the local folders with the following Warning at the PsychoPy3 Experiment Runner window:
“584.7908 WARNING Project AresEsBa/prova-oida-absoluta has changed gitlab ID since last use (was 39756 now 39763)”.

HOWEVER, when I press the “Sync with web project” Icon, a message appears telling me “This file doesn’t belong to any existing project” and offers me the option to create a new one. In the PsychoPy3 Experiment Runner window, new warnings appear:

633.9227 WARNING We found a repository at C:/Users/GiliGaya/Desktop/TestOA but it doesn’t point to You could create that as a remote to sync from PsychoPy.

I have done it several times, removing the Pavlovia project online and creating new projects from the message offering at Builder. When a new project is created this way, everything runs smoothly until I close PsychoPy and open the file again. Then it happens the same.

I know I can sync my files from the Find existing studies online and linking it to the current Pavlovia project but I would appreciate if you could help me syncronize the files more conveniently.


I’m struggling with a similar issue.

Pavlovia doesn’t work well with Google Drive so I deleted my old project and started a new one on a local drive. I think the issue occurred when I opened my old file from Google drive to check something. Now I get a red warning when trying to sync and the runner says 108.4395 WARNING Project Wake/interactive-fiction has changed gitlab ID since last use (was 11452 now 41870)

How can I say yes that’s fine, please update the local gitlab ID?

I have the same issue, would you mind explaining how to do this step as a work around?

For example, if I find my project and sync here…

… it doesn’t appear to update here as most recent commits were 20 hours ago, and the project on Pavlovia does not incorporate the edits
