Workflow between Zotero, DevonTHINK and Obsidian

I have a question with regard to a workflow between DT3, Zotero and Obsidian. I use Zotero only for metadata (the reference). It does not contain any PDFs or the like as I usually work with print books and just think DT3 is better for handling all the rest. So Zotero is where my sources start and I think of it as some way of standardising my references and the metadata. Next I create a folder in DT3 where I could put in some scans from the books, some PDFs or maybe the actual PDF if it is an article or the like. An allround folder for everything related to the source. Finally I use the Citations plugin in Obsidian to grab the citations and metadata from Zotero and create a markdown file with all the metadata plus the Zotero URI-link and the DT3 x-callback-link. My obsidian folder resides in iCloud Drive and is indexed to DT3 as well.

Now this is where the workflow starts to crumble. I now have two folders in DT3 about the source. One is the indexed folder from Obsidian, and the other is the internal/imported folder I created in DT3 with all the PDFs etc. Does anyone have any ideas about what I should do here? Is it possible to have the indexed folder from Obsidian and then internally in DT3 place imported files in that folder? Would it distort it in Obsidian and/or in DT3?

I hope anyone can help and please ask me for more information if Iā€™m missing something.
