Great software, one of the best options I’ve come across for constructing a database for an individual artist that is comprehensive but also useable. It is replacing a simple spreadsheet for me, and I hope to use it to catalogue my artwork / inventory system. Thanks for all the efforts.
I’ve set up tropy on a cloud drive to be available on two separate computers. Recently I noticed that one does not seem to load a custom item template properly.
This leads to two questions -
Where are the custom templates located on Mac OS? I suspect I have to bring a copy over to the local computer where it is not loading properly. I’m aware that I need to keep the images in a folder on the cloud drive and to not run two instances of Tropy at the same time.
I built the custom template by mildly adjusting one I downloaded from a blog. I realize I may have an opportunity to use a more standardized vocabulary, but am rather lost here. Searching around I find that the Getty has what looks like a standard - Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA) (Getty Research Institute)
But I could use some help in getting that into tropy - or alternate suggestion if there is an Artwork vocabulary that seems better.
Thanks for any tips or assistance in advance!
