Export to folders and import... Losing replicants

Dear DEVONThink community,

I’m working mainly with 2 databases (research and design), and I like to have the design database as a “library” into the research database. So, I export the design database as file and folders, and I import them into the research database.

My problem, is that the replicant data is lost (DTP identifies the replicants as duplicates). Do you have a workaround for this? I would like to keep the replicant data, because the database is much more lighter like that.

Thank you very much.

What kind of replicants are lost? Groups, PDF documents or Other data?


I’m losing mainly RTF’s and PDFs. I think that all replicants had gone.


At least the replicants of RTF(D) documents should survive the process if all replicants are im/exported in one step.
