Issues with sync on OSX

Hi all,

I have a Dropbox based sync that has not been synced to in a little over a year, I recently switched back to Joplin and macOS, and I am having issues with getting attachments sync.

I have Joplin set to “Always” sync attachments. Unless the note is open AND the background sync occurs I don’t get the attachments.

I have also verified that the attachments are in the .resource folder on dropbox.

other issues are:

  • I only seem to get 3 attachments at a time
  • I have to click on them to download, sometimes
  • Some still don’t download even if I wait after a few syncs

I have tried:

  • removing the joplin-desktop folder in ~/.config/ and resyncing
  • reinstalling from the latest .dmg, off github

I do have another mac with Joplin installed that has a lot of this note set synced (its on v1.0.109 and about 1 year old at this point) that I can export from so all is not fully lost, but I would like to recover whats on dropbox, export it and start over after cleaning out dropbox.
