Outline searches for old notebooks on startup

Hans Schmid Jul 16, 2019 08:46AM PDT

Hey there,

some months ago I had an old version of Outline installed. In this time I had a local NAS on which my notebooks were stored. Last week I started to use outline again and I installed the latest version. The network address of the NAS doesn't exist anymore and it seems like outline is searching for the old notebooks. I also get a popup by Finder that the network drive isn't available. This slows down the startup of outline extremely. Once outline is started it works fine, but no old notebook is visible neither in the notebook tab nor in the settings. I deleted all my old backups in iCloud but this didn't solve the problem.
Is there a workaround to clean/delete the workbooks manually? Maybe some files in the library folder?

Thanks and greetings
