Editorial Dropbox Sync Delay
Anyone else experiencing this?
When I open a Dropbox-resident file to edit, Editorial goes through an invisible process of syncing with the Dropbox repo. Consequently, IF I begin to type before the "dropbox synced" screen message (which is all to brief, unfortunately!!) I end up generating a conflicted sync doc.
Sadly, the more I use Editorial to access my (Taskpaper) Dropbox files, the higher the occurrence of these annoying conflict docs which I then have to manually weed through for individual additions, and then delete.
Any experiences/solutions to share? Thanks!
i also frequently get conflicting files that im modifying. even for simple things like adding a line at the top of the file. you'd think dropbox should be able to consolidate those changes.
yeah idk why it's happening.
yeah i think what's happening is that it's modifying the old version of the file (since youre writing to the current state before it refreshes), and then once it downloads the remote file, it realizes its different so there's a conflicting file generated rather than just resolving the generally trivial merge conflict (if its just adding text at the top).
this problem is exacerbate when using scripts since appending by workflow script will work without waiting for a dropbox sync completion, thereby guaranteeing failure and a generated conflicted file.
anyone know how to make workflows wait for a dropbox sync?
