I’m using Drobbox to sync a Pan X database across two Mac computers. When I open the synced database on the other Mac make some edits and click Save, I often get a dialogue to click Revert or Save Anyway.
I usually click Save Anyway.
Probably related: I thought I was going crazy at first, but now I’m convinced I’m losing data when I open the db on the other Mac. Fields I know I’ve filled in with data are showing up empty.
I know a number of other users are successfully using Dropbox to sync their Pan X databases without losing data. Could someone provide some guidance how to make that work or offer an idea of how I may be interfering with the sync process?
The Revert/Save Anyway dialogue refers to versions. I found “Versions” under the file menu and looked at previous versions and found my lost data. I don’t understand how, and the logic by which, that version was created. (Probably reflects my lack of understanding of the Revert/Save Anyway dialogue.)
