I was under the impression that syncing a database would give the index position of the file without download the whole contents of the file?
I recently put my groups within the Global inbox and did away with sub-databases to only deal with 1 database (the global). I’m syncing the global database between all my devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac) and am finding its occupying near 30GB whereas there only are ~20 items download plainly listed in DDTG.
I have my sync settings sliders set to Keep 100 only. I see no purge option anywhere in the user interface at all. I once read elsewhere in an outdated thread that the global inbox can’t be managed via sync rules. I dearly hope this is untrue.
I do not want to have to manage databases other than the single one already given, the global. Every time I ShareSheet an item to DDTG I do not want to have to scroll to a DB other than the one selected by default (global), I am already inclined to do my work from a single DB so please make it the Global one!
I’m on a mission to eliminate as much friction as possible in my workflows and this extra user input on every single clip is absolutely superfluous. I’m now having to scroll wheel to a separate, single, database (other than the global!) to clip all items on every single instance of invoking the ShareSheet functionality - for the sole reason that the Global inbox defies expected behaviour. I have smart rules. I have groups. The databases all have inboxes. The global inbox demands tuning!
