I am completely new to DT and still testing it with a trial version.
I am syncing my DT database with dropbox on two Macs, one at home and one at work.
I enabled two default “Custom Metadata” in Preferences (author and ISSN/ISBN).
The problem is, every time I launch DT after using DT on another Mac, all the “Custom Metadata” would gone. (I attached two screenshots here)
I also tried the method from another post, deleting the “CustomMetaData.plist” in Library > Application Support > DEVONthink 3 after quitting DT to reset all the default values of “Custom Metadata”.
However, when I restore the default values of “Custom Metadata” on Mac A, all the “Custom Metadata” on Mac B would be lost when I use DT on that Mac the next time, so I have to do the same thing on that Mac, and so on.
I am not sure is this behaviour related to sync, though it seems so to me. Thank you for any suggestion or advices.
