I've run the install on both machines with the very important caveat that it's only running on one machine at any given time. I always exit calibre once I'm done with the PC.

The Dropbox icon on the system tray usually shows the latest files synced and when it's done syncing.

Okay, so I checked the Dropbox system tray and when I read and bookmarked a book, it changed the epub itself as well as iterator.pickle and viewer.json.

Exited calibre, made sure Dropbox was done syncing on PC 1, fired up PC 2, made sure Dropbox finished syncing on PC 2, fired up Calibre, opened the last book I was reading and the bookmark and last read location was all correct.

Well, as near as I can tell I've done exactly the same thing. The files you mention get updated but what I see is different on the two PC's.

I will probably come back to this at some point but for now I've had it. :-) Thank you for the testing you did. I appreciate it.

FWIW, it looks like the key to this is a pickle. Specifically it's iterator.pickle.

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=265864

While the current page and the bookmarks are stored in the epub, they're also stored in iterator.pickle in ...users/{username}/appdata/roaming/calibre/. They are taken from the local location preferentially.

I copied the data from that folder to a folder in the cloud where both PC's could see it and then created an environmental variable CALIBRE_CONFIG_DIRECTORY on both machines pointing there. After reboots (and multiple episodes of correcting poor spelling) it seems to be working.

Fingers crossed.

Thanks again to those who helped me here.
