Apple releases iOS13
Dashflow users are advised that an iOS13-compatible version of Dashflow has now been released: v1.11.1 All users are encouraged to update from the App Store or via VPP. You can also upgrade now to DF Converter v1.2(17) which is iOS13-compatible.
The original iOS13 was unusually buggy and a series of releases followed with fixes and sometimes additional problems. The iOS is v13.2.3 at the time of writing and it seems that the worst of the Apple bugs and design issues are resolved. We therefore now advise users to continue with the usual recommendation to upgrade to the latest Apple iOS release.

Probably you love or hate the Dark Mode option, but Dashflow is not being optimized for Dark Mode for the time being. So, if Dark Mode is switched on, you may find it difficult or impossible to see some screens properly. In our group, some Dashflow users were affected, others were not.
The default is Light Mode so you may not be aware of the issue. But if someone has turned Dark on and it all looks wrong, then you will need to go into the Device Settings, find Display & Brightness, and tick the small button under the Light option.
Apple Uploader (Sharer)
This is a fundamental tool for both importing and exporting. When you import, you need to see Copy to Dashflow among the choices. When you export, then you need to see your favorite options, like Outlook or OneDrive.
We found the new Uploader a serious disappointment. Less useful, less intuitive, less aesthetic. The chances are high that the default Uploader will not satisfy you either. For now, you will have to make adjustments or take extra actions to get it working for you. Perhaps just powering the device OFF and then ON again will make the Uploader more functional. It's worth a try!
You cannot set the Uploader options once for all situations or all apps. Depending what you import or where you import from, you will likely have to set the Uploader for that instance.
Here is how you fix the Uploader. You probably imagine that by tapping on “Edit Actions…” you will be able to change the options. But, no, not at all. This button only deals with the lower rows of items and even then does not allow you to edit them in the sense of including useful items that used to be there, like Air Print, Copy.
Here is how you can organise importing and exporting to work for you:

As noted above, if the first time you look, some of these items are not there, you may well find they mysteriously appear the second time you look, or after the iPad is powered OFF and then ON again.
