I’m seeing a lot of “copy” duplicate items appearing in DT as a result of sync.
– Two MacBook Pros with DT 3.5.1
– iPhone and iPad with DTTG 2.7.7
– Sync via iCloud
– Sync via Bonjour, with one MacBook Pro acting as host on local network.
Note that I have two sync path: one via iCloud, one via Bonjour (local network). When I enable only one of these paths only, sync behaves normally. When I enable both paths, any edited RTF note ends up generating lots of extra “copy” versions as a result of sync conflicts (pretty much one for every set of edits). However, I only ever edit the documents in question on one computer, so this is not a genuine conflict caused by overlapping edits on different computers. It seems to be a result of sync occurring via more than one sync path.
I’m not entirely surprised by this, to be honest, as getting multiple paths working can be tricky, but I can’t find anything in the UI, help, or anywhere else that says to avoid multiple sync stores. (If it’s a bad thing I would have expected to only allow enabling one sync store at a time).
(Incidentally, I’m doing this since iCloud sync is so clunky and slow. I would use Dropbox sync but for the problems with it silently stopping sync dead.)
