One of the biggest reasons I subscribed to awesome was for the collection sync, because I frequently work across 2 devices, my desktop PC and a laptop. I am working through organizing a massive hoard of fonts, and I want to be able to categorize things from either computer. Unfortunately, sync doesn’t appear to be designed to do this - or I’m missing something.
The JSON file is in a google drive that’s mapped on both the PC and the laptop. However, my laptop seems to be the “primary” for the collection.
If I add a new collection while using fontbase on my laptop, or add a new item to a collection and then close fontbase, I can see that the JSON file updates, based on last modified timestamp. If I then open up fontbase on my PC, I can see the updates.
When I then try to remove or add a collection on my PC, or remove or add an item from a collection on my PC and close fontbase, the file again updates, based on the last modified timestamp.
However, when I re-open fontbase on my laptop, it’s overwriting the collection file with whatever was the last state on my laptop. If I had removed a collection on the PC, it’s still there on the laptop. If I had added a font to collection on my PC, it’s not in the collection on the laptop. And the JSON file gets updated when I close fontbase on my laptop.
Is this working as intended? Or is there something I’m missing to get this to sync in both directions?
