Tinderbox can now automatically import selected notes from the any Finder folder application, including folders in Dropbox or other remote servers.
From v7.3.1, multiple watched folders are supported, i.e. more than one (root level) watched Finder folder.
To connect Tinderbox to a folder, create a root level container (and it can only be at root level) to hold the imported notes and set its $WatchFolder attribute to the name of the Finder folder you want to import. Tinderbox will now automatically import to or update that container (for supported format files) whenever the TBX document is reopened, and periodically thereafter as part of the AutoFetch cycle.
The imported notes inherit from a built-in prototype named "Imported From Finder", making it easy to common key attributes or visual appearance.
- Changes to the imported notes will not (yet) be propagated to the application or to other devices.
- (7.3.1) Notes created by watching Finder are now read-only by default, inheriting $ReadOnly from their prototype.
