Expanding on the above, I wanted to create a symlink to my dropbox account. I used the terminal script
ln -s ~"/Dropbox (Personal)/EagleFilerDropbox" ~/Eagle/Files/EagleFilerDropbox
Dropbox (Personal) is the name I created long ago as I already hade a business dropbox account. And Eagle is the EF library name.
But the files and folders in dropbox do not appear in EF. So I created a text file within EF as a test. In Finder under the ~/Eagle/Files/EagleFilerDropbox I see the test text file and the sync file name. so the directory is ~/Eagle/Files/EagleFilerDropbox/EagleFilerDropbox. And the dropbox files and directories appear in Finder.
Aside from your instructions above I have no experience with creating symlinks. However, upon reflection I think I might not have followed your manual instructions exactly. I think I may have deleted the EF created directory in the Eagle tree and manually added the directory in Dropbox rather than a copy and paste. I am guessing the system uses a unique ID in Finder that’s tracked in ED data file and hence blew it. Is that what happened? And is there an easy way to correct or do I need to reset the scenario and start from the top? If so, is there a Terminal command to back out the one I used for Dropbox (Personal)? Thanks
P.S. I’d like to link to my iCloud files in a similar manner too. That way one library can be searching three locations. So any helpful hints along this line would be appreciated too.
