Can you have your own storage to sync? I do not want to enable my icloud.

    Hi Hao,

    we will eventually add new forms of synching but right now is not one of our priorities.

    Can we upvote a non iCloud storage feature, or at least "select where to store sync files" for those of us who can't use iCloud? Symlinking is not even an option for those of us who are blocked from enabling Pro versions on machines that don't have access to iCloud.

    I would love to update to pro to support Bear but I don't want to use iCloud.
