Here is my setup: I created a folder in Dropbox named "Application 
Support". I put the LC folder in there as well as BBEdit's preferences 
and a few other things I want to share among machines.

On Mac #1, the path in the LC prefs is:
/Users/Username1/Dropbox/Application Support/My LiveCode

Mac #2:
/Users/username2/Dropbox/Application Support/My LiveCode

And so forth. Dropbox keeps the folders in sync and because it's a local 
folder on each drive, LC has no problem accessing it.
