[Import] Open external .db and only import new notes

Postby littlebigman » Wed Oct 06, 2010 12:48 am


I sometimes work with CintaNotes on a laptop, and then need to import the notes I took back on my desktop machine.

Currently, I select the notes I took during this session, based on the date/time for the notes, export them to XML, copy this file on my desktop, and hit File > Import.

I suggest adding some syncing/diff feature, so the user would just have to provide the remote .db file, CN will show the differences, and import the new records into the local .db file.

But CN already doesn't import exact duplicates, see for yourself: try simply importing the remote .db file.
