OK - Help me out with this scenario... I appreciate this might be a silly situation, but based on the quoted comment above, it needs to be asked.
All three files are in sync, i.e., iMac, iPad and Dropbox server.
You are out somewhere with iPad and update the file substantially, but do not sync (no connection)
You are back home, and turn on the iMac. Both iMac and Dropbox server are in sync (keep in mind, that you did not sync you iPad with Dropbox server). You proceed to make changes on the iMac and sync with Dropbox server.
With the above 3 phases, you now have a situation, where you are back on the iPad and want to update the Dropbox server with the earlier updated iPad files that was not sync'd.
Question: How does the iPad / Dropbox sync address the version on the Dropbox that was changed prior via the iMac, but not on the iPad before it got changed, too. Please tell me that there's some 'magic', that merges the two distinct versions ! Least a warning flash that you are about to lose something.
