Importing duplicate files no matter the import settings
I'm trying to figure this out.

Today I had to go through all my PDFs on my tablet and enter Key and Tempo information. Took a long time but I got it done.

I am constantly updating songs (arrangements, layout, parts, etc) and importing them via Dropbox.

Duplicate files are always created.

No matter if I select "Create New Song From Existing File" or "Ignore Duplicate Files" ... a duplicate song will be created.

Here's my Storage Settings:
Let Mobilesheets manage my files - ON
Expose Database File - OFF
Delete Original After Copy - OFF
Create Subdirectories for Songs - ON
Copy Audio Files - OFF
Add Unique Id to Filenames - ON

I'm wondering if this is because the SONG A on the tablet has Tempo and Key metadata and the PDF being imported does not? Although even before I added Key and Tempo metadata to all the songs it was happening.

1. How do I import files and have them simply "replace" the old version
2. Is there a way to import Song A and have the old Song A's key and tempo metadata simply copy over to the new imported version?

I'm on MSP Version 2.1.7 using Android.

Appreciate any help
12 tablets (Insignia, ONN, Dragon Touch). Ranging from Android 5 to 9.
