Automatically reloading pages
I have a problem where Zim often says:
Could not save page
File changed on disk: (path)
To continue you can save a copy of this page or discard
any changes. If you save a copy changes will be also
discarded, but you can restore the copy later.
I'm using Dropbox for file syncing, though I think the issue I describe
here would happen for other file syncing services as well, The steps:
- Edit a notebook page on one machine.
- File is synced to cloud.
- Go to another machine where notebook page is already open.
- File is synced *from* the cloud. Now it no longer matches Zim's memory.
- Edit the page in Zim.
- Error message: Could not save page...
I understand what's happening. My question is whether this can be mitigated
with a plugin, patch, hidden setting or other technique? If Zim
automatically reloaded pages that were not modified in memory that had been
modified on disk, that would cure 99% of the issue.
Also, has this been discussed before? I searched around the web and the
list but didn't get any good hits.
I'm on Zim 0.68 on Mac and Windows 10 if that matters.
