Hi Mark

Dropbox has saved my life on many occasions and I find it an excellent app. Even though I use OSX i still find dropbox a better syncing/ backup solution to iCloud. I have just bought a new macbook (and have topped up the ram and added a solid state drive) and run polyboard via parallels and it is lightning fast now. 

Thanks for offering to help with the cutlist app. I am still running demo on that as Im still considering opticut for long term but cutlist plus does offer full usage in demo so if you can help i would appreciate it. 

Best

Hello again Terry,

Go to “tools> folders> parameters” and set the libraries and materials folders to your dropbox.
From then on PolyBoard will pick up the libraries from the dropbox.

All the best,
Ness

PS: did you get the new activation code?

I could probably work it out today but struggling for time. Can you offer me a quick easy solution to re- import all of my previous settings such as materials edging and fitting links etc into a new version of polyboard that I’ve just installed on new computer. I saved my old settings in a dropbox folder…….it should be simple but i don’t want to risk messing it up.

 

Cheers
