Simplify syncing

It would be great if Alred would provide a simple "Sync prefs to Dropbox" checkbox, without having to select a folder.

Make the default be ~/Dropbox/Alfred.preferences for example.

 

With current state of things, the first thing I did of course is pick a fancy folder where I thought it made total sense to store these prefs.

Then couldn't remember which path made so much sense that other day... had to run a find ~/Dropbox -name \*Alfred\* :)

I think a simple "Sync prefs to Dropbox" checkbox would be actually best!

 

With an "Advanced syncing" option for those who really want to pick something fancy (and regret it later) :)

 

Plus, with a simple default like that, you could easily find that file and automatically pick it up on new machines... no need to browse to anywhere.

I would love it if I upgraded Alfred on my other box, and boom it has my synced settings without me even doing anything (the whole point of syncing) :)

It was left as a picker to allow syncing to occur with any of the syncing apps (Dropbox, google drive, cubby, etc). Yes, a single click for Dropbox is nice in theory but removes the ability for finer customization. Others want Alfred stuff in specific folders and don't want Alfred to just pick a folder
