I am running version 1.0.201 on a Mac Mojave and 1.0.201 on Windows 10.
I have set up File System for synchronization, giving the path of a folder on the desktop of both machines.
That folder gets synced to a Synology NAS as soon as a file is saved on it, so it’s basically a shared folder over the network.
Notes synch flawlessly, they never leave my network and I have a backup of everything in case of disaster. I am very happy about that setup.
The problem comes to the attachments.
The note will show attachments only on the machine they were added.
Example: I create a note on the PC, add a picture, synch. Open it on the Mac after synch, add another picture, synch.
Mac will render only the picture that I added on the MAC.
PC will render the picture added on the PC.
Both show the full note content with the links to both images.
I did some debugging and found out that Joplin correctly stores the attachments on the .resource folder rather than the .config/joplin-desktop
The problem comes as Synology will not synch hidden folders.
I tried to make that folder visible, but Joplin automatically creates again the hidden folder and ignores the non-hidden folder.
Is there a way to force Joplin to work with a non-hidden folder to handle the attachments on the FileSystem synch?
I mean, if the notes are visible, I don’t see the issue with having the resources visible too.
But I can’t find any option regarding resource location.
