I have just recently discovered a ProPresenter feature that allows you to sync your library with a folder on your computer. This is great if you have multiple computers on a local network, but make this folder a dropbox folder and you have instant library synchronization with anyone you share that dropbox folder with! Nerds rejoice everywhere!
This is perfect for me, as I can create slides on different computers while always having the latest library to start off from.
To set it up:
- Sign up to dropbox (yes, that’s an affiliate link – click here if you prefer not to give me extra space!) if you haven’t already and install the client on your computer.
- Create a folder within your dropbox account where your library files will be stored. This new folder will be replicated to your computer.
- In ProPresenter, go to preferences and the Sync tab. Select the folder from your dropbox and the sync type you need. I went with Bidirectional as changes can be made to the library from any computer.
- If you need your media guy also to access the library, share out the dropbox folder with them first of all (using the dropbox website), and then ask them to perform step 3 above.
