Improvements and fixes

This update fixes the following issue:

Consider the following scenario:

  • You make changes to a project.

  • You save the project.

  • You look at the progress indicator in the lower-right part of the screen to determine the progress.

In this situation, the indicator starts by saying that it is "Saving" the project. Then, it says that it is "Synchronizing data to server...". After this, however, the expected progress and final "Save completed successfully" details are not displayed.
