Dropbox syncing at the same time as dotmac?
I have been using the dropbox syncing method for awhile, without problems, so long as I remember to quit one copy of YJ before opening another. But I recently went down to just one machine. I kept my YJ db on Dropbox anyway, since then it is backed up online. Then last week I took a new job and got another mac. I installed YJ there, and just started using YJ locally, with the db in the default location. With the 2.0 upgrade, and the purported improvements to dotmac syncing, I decided to try it again. From my home machine, with a large YJ db, I turned on syncing. It synced last night (or so I assume, since it took several hours to sync a 200mb library).
However, when I then turned on syncing on my work machine, with only about 30 items in its db, it synced quickly, but never added the items from the home db. (I should mention that syncing of bookmarks & calendars has worked flawlessly since I initiated it.)
Here's what I'm wondering: does using the Dropbox method break dotmac syncing? I assumed that the location of the local db should not affect how dotmac syncing functions, but I cannot explain the problem otherwise. If my home library has indeed been dumped to the cloud, shouldn't my work machine see those items?
