Another thing about shared environment.

Version 10.1 made it considerable easier, but for many reasons we have to use proxies here. Various scenarios described in a cited paper rely on XML exchange. This, btw, can be easily done without exporting but simply replacing appropriate "currentversion" files from the Finder level. The advantage is that proxies jump in, which doesn't happen with the project or event imported from XML.

In such cases proxies can be manually added (Finder again). Worth noting however this doesn't work if the events structure and content changes within the libraries - the proxies, even while copied, don't show up.

The paper doesn't care about proxies that much assuming that thanks to powerful hardware solutions it's easy to create and to store them. Well, our smallest libraries are still over 1TB in size.

What could help a lot would be to make proxies external. I don't see the reason why they can't be shared if originals can. But first of all it would help a lot if I could relink not only originals but proxies as well.
