So I was working on two documents offline. One of them the changes synced but the other one didn't sync back the comments that I made. What did I do wrong?

Google Chrome Separating Personal and Work
I recently decided to separate my personal work from my work. I created two user accounts on my Mac for this purpose. On my work account, I signed in to Chrome. I love Chrome as a browser but don’t want to have all of my bookmarks since most of these are personal. I do like a few of the extensions I have installed but could always reinstall instal them. Any tips, thoughts, or help would be appreciated.

You can have multiple Google accounts. And login to Chrome with them. That's how I do it. Since my browser is the main difference between work and personal, I only have 1 login on my computer, but am logged into chrome with 2 different accounts: my Google Apps account which is my work, and my personal Gmail. I just open Chrome with the business account when I work, and personal when not. You can even create shortcuts that open it with each account. Then bookmarks, extensions, etc are all separate.

Although I love Google Drive, I am having an issue with students working together in docs. When they work on a group project and multiple people are editing at the same time, the text and such constantly changes positioning. This gets very difficult to type and can be confusing, any help or thoughts?

Thanks +Jonathan Davis 
 Any time people and or students are working on the same page at the same time it gets a little distracting - and for that reason I prefer not to use a table for a group

I don't know anything about solving the problem, but I suggestion copying everything in the folder and paste into a new folder on your desktop just in case. If it does delete everything in that folder, at least you have a backup copy of the files.

When you sign in to Chrome, you can choose what you want synced.
You could also use Chromium at work and sign in with a work account.

here is a link to some resources from a workshop I did with some teachers around collaboration in drive. the top diagram may be useful as this is one way to structure an approach to Gapps tools for collaborative research and presentation. http://esfeducation.com/student-collaboration/

I often have several students working on the same document and my solution is to separate their sections with a hard page break. This keeps their screens stable and is easy to reformat later.
