Opening an existing Glom file should just ask you for the username
and password. It remembers the hostname and port. Could you explain
the difficulty in more detail, please?
I did choose both export and "save as example" because I didn't know
how to save my data,
When I then try in "Open Existing Document", then "Select File",
then it sometimes happens that it shows the "Choose a glom file to open"
window with an empty field for the Name field.
And when I choose another glom file in that dialogue it always ask for
confirmation because of overwriting it. That's the point that confuses me.
But I'll see whether I can run a Linux guest VM in VirtualBox and test how
easy it is to connect to a running glom in there.
