Title: Tinderbox in the Cloud
Post by Lars Christiansen on Jan 11th, 2016, 12:29pm

Hello
I'm using Tinderbox across 2 macs, a Mac Mini 2012, and a MacBook 2015.
I have just started to use iCloud for saving and sharing a few TBX files across those machines.
At this point I am only sharing small files that I can easily rebuild if lost.

I was wondering (a search on the forum revealed very little on this subject) if anyone have had a significant experience, positive or negative, sharing TBX files between Macs using iCloud?

The same question: Anyone with experience synchronizing data between PC and Mac via iCloud?

Regards
Lars

I use Dropbox rather than iCloud but the expereince is essentially the sa,e (home, work and a MBAir that travels with me). The main discipline is to remember to close all docs before leaving a location (Mac).

I've been doing this (or a 2-Mac variant) since 2013 and haven't had any significant problems. If you're forgetful and leave docs open on multiple machines, you may get some odd effects.

Agree with this. I've used TB on multiple computers, synched via Dropbox, for many years with no problems.

IF you forget to close a doc in one location before opening it in another, you have some cleaning up to do. Dropbox saves different versions of the file, which you can then reconcile. But otherwise it has been bulletproof for me.
