If you are looking for a way to share some of your Notebooks documents with other users, you can achieve that with a shared Dropbox folder and Dropbox sync. Here is what can you do:

  • Create and share a Dropbox folder which currently is not in Notebooks’ hierarchy (Dropbox does not allow that).
  • Then on your computer, create a symbolic link from that shared folder into a folder within Notebooks’ hierarchy. The simplest option to create a symbolic link is from the Terminal app, using the command like
    ln -s /path/to/original/ /path/to/link
    The shared folder now appears in two locations.
  • To Notebooks, this linked folder looks like a regular folder, so it syncs it like a regular folder, in both directions as usual. All changes you make in Notebooks appear in the original shared folder on Dropbox, too, and are available for all invited users.

Important: On a Mac, please make sure that the shared folder is not on iCloud Drive, because that does not play well with Dropbox.
