I finally realized that instead of using ipad single purpose apps, I should be using a DT3 database of daily activities. I open DT3 in my 2012 imac and it takes forever to open. Not a DT3 problem. I need to be opening to a much smaller file in DT3. So, I have created a daily use DT3 database.
Now I am trying to add that smaller database from DT3 into DTTG. I cannot find out how to do that.
I have already set up DT3 for syncing. I was planning to use the huge file that I use for research. But, I don’t have it set up well enough to use it without the powerful search function on DT3. I think I need to keep my research database on my ipad for an emergency, but in general, use my daily DT3 file because it is small and designed to be open all the time so it does not hog so much ram on my 2012 imac.
I never did this before because the purpose and the process were not clear. Now the purpose is clear, but the process is unclear still.
I see from another post that I should close DT3 on my imac when I use the ipad DTTG.
I think I want to sync everything. Not just meta data. I would do that periodically as needed. At that time, stuff that belongs in other databases can be re-sorted. Sorry to say, I am not sure of the difference.
So, my problem is to open the daily database in DTTG and also to sync it correctly.
Help would be very much appreciated.
