Additional comments

Sorry to hear that!

Could you try a few more times? I just tried and it works fine for me.

It’s caused by not hearing back from their server after a certain amount of time has passed. It could also be because your WorkFlowy is way too big to send over in one request.

In that case, I recommend copying over your content section by section. WorkFlowy content will copy to OPML and will be recognized when pasted into Dynalist.

I hope that helps!
