In the "Study" feature, what exactly do the "Sync" and "Record" buttons do? What is being synced and recorded and to where? How would I or anyone else make use of these buttons?

I searched but didn't find an explanation, thanks.

If you are a contributor, you can enable 'Record' to write your changes (like variations) to the server. You can enable 'Sync' if you want that all members remain on the position you have (so when you make a variation, other people with 'Sync' enabled will also be on that position.).

When I hit record all my moves are lost.

sync is when other people are on, and you want them to see what you are doing as your doing it.
