Trying to set up JabRef using Dropbox as a central pdf + bib repository for access from two different computers (one Linux, one Windows).
The default directories can be set in different places as follows:
- Options > preferences “Main file directory” can be set
- Options > preferences bib file location can be used as “primary file directory”.
- File > database properties > General file directory.
- File > database properties > User-specific file directory
Can these be specified in a way so that Clean > move linked files works on both computers (putting the linked files on a shared dropbox folder)?
Ideally, I would just tick 2. but It seems that 1 or 2 is not sufficient - the tickbox for moving linked files is grayed out unless 3 is filled in and this creates a problem since the file paths are different on the two machines.
