This is how I want to use Pixa. It seems to have a problem in merging the file. Is there a way to fix this?

    unfortunately, the iCloud Drive is not accessible as the normal folders and apparently there isn't a way to allow this even in high sierra.

    If I leave the Pixa.pxlibrary on the desktop it is automatically propagated between my computers. But I am getting an (unable to merge) when I used both.

    iCloud, DropBox and iCloud Drive do not manage file conflicts and may cause database corruptions or merge problems, like in your case. We suggest using live folder instead of synching the whole library.
