Alexander, sorry for the late answer.

I’ve never tried but I think CT can be used via Dropbox by many users as long as all of them do not change anything in the project. Just read its content. As I said, I’ve never tried and I don’t know if it will work or not.

CT uses a SQL engine that prevents opening the database in a networked drive. Such limitation can be lifted using a newer version of the engine (which I don’t think is stable enough) but I won’t let the database be opened by more than one user.

Many users request a network version of CT. We have some ideas about it but it will require extensive changes.

Best regards,

Eduardo, thanks, I’ll try it out.

I actually have the CT files in a Dropbox folder, for my own access from several PCs and I think this works fine, so I’ll test granting others access as well. Unfortunately Dropbox can’t be set to grant Read-Only access, so I’ll keep my backups.

Well there really is a huge market out there for collaborative solutions, and I can tell you that most of them offer very little functionality compared to Connected Text…
