Couldn't figure out how to configure sync feature in Gnote note taker
I got Gnote and really like it and wanted to sync it via Dropbox to another computer. Well, I set it up to automatically sync every five minutes. (See screenshot 12)
In hindsight, I don't think I needed to do that. What happens if I leave that 'automatical sync...' box unchecked? Do I just have to sync it manually, which I did just to test it (See screenshot 13).
I don't use Gnote that often and having it sync every 5 minutes might be overkill. Does it use the computer resources to do so?
I think I might be better off just unchecking the automatical sync box and syncying manually.
And when I open the Gnote folder(s) in Dropbox it's just in html files. How do I get it to open as Gnote? (I'm assuming I have to download Gnote on the other computer, but even when I open the Dropbox/Gnote folder on this computer (which has Gnote already installed) it's giving me multiple folders, which I assume are because of the sync updates I did manually, and inside are all just html files (see screenshot 14).) Thanks.
