hi magsterz, I'm not sure how can I merge two libraries into
one, just like you said, to do a quasi-sync between different
machines, would you please to describe how did you do it? I mean,
if following the instruction to copy the whole paper 2 folder, and
paste to the expected location, won't this cover the original local
papers which already existed in the library? Thanks a lot!

Does Papers yet support synching of the Papers2 folder content
on two different Macs via other programs, such as the ChronoSync
that I use daily to keep the entire Documents folder (except
Papers2) between my laptop and office iMac up to date?
Papers2 has not done so in the past and this is a major hassle -
I want my papers with me when I have my laptop, but there is no way
I'm going to sacrifice my iMac screen when in the office. As it is
now, I have to manually move the entire folder between machines as
one unit AND I have to keep track of where I most recently added
papers, both of which are a total hassle.
This used to work just fine in the original Papers, but I think
the spotlight searches in v2 killed it. Please bring it back -
honestly, it is pretty ridiculous that you can two-way sync an iPad
to a Mac, but not two Macs! Or alternatively, have an option to
turn off indexing if that is the culprit and I'll rely on my brain
cells to remember the connections.
Syncing is easy if you put you database folder on a cloud based
folder. the only issue is when both (or more) devices are accessing
the database. I use between an airbook and iMac in exactly this way
but have to remember always to close Papers2 when i finish with
