Tinderbox can automatically import selected notes from the any Finder folder, including folders in Dropbox or other remote servers. This is set up via the File menu.
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 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.
- Changes to the imported notes will not (yet) be propagated to the application or to other devices.
- Notes created by watching Finder are read-only by default, inheriting $ReadOnly from their prototype.
