Hi ya,

 

  To set the stage for my question, this is an attempt to recover my user notes and tools following an abortive attempt to enable DropBox support. I was doing this in preparation for cross-platform sync tests with the new Windows beta, but I got nowhere near that.

 

  What happened was I linked to my DropBox account and things seemed to go ok, the Apps -> Accordance DropBox folder was created. But there was no content in it. I had chosen to do a manual sync so I could see what appeared where on a sync. Anyhow nothing appeared. I then tried a second manual sync - still nothing, though I saw the friendly little dialog telling me it was doing some 20 tasks. Ok so I went and check the source - my user notes and tools under the Accordance Files dir. Empty ! Oooops. I unlinked DropBox and began recovery operations.

 

  I pulled them back from TM with Acc down and booted Acc again. It failed to find my highlights - I don't use many but I had some - ooops again. I shutdown Acc and pulled back my highlight files. Then booted Acc again. Now I can see my highlights and I can see my tools and notes in the file system but I cannot see entries for them under My Notes and My Tools. Oooops thrice. Now if it were a regular module I'd remove it and hit Easy Install but they aren't. I assume, partly because of the fact that my session was not restored to what it was before my DropBox setup attempt. So I assume something is busted in the library config somewhere, but I don't know which file that is nor what else is likely to be impacted by a restore.

 

  So any thoughts on how to get these tools and notes reintegrated into the library with out recreation ?

 

Thx

OK so it turns out this is not that hard. If you just double click on the file in the finder Accordance opens it. Then I just had to set the tool formatting and that was that.
