 DropBox may keep backup versions, and Keyboard Maestro keeps backup revisions (in the [[Menus#​File_Revert_Macros|Revert Macros command]] in the [[Menus#​File|File menu]]), so you should be able to recover from any conflicts that happen. ​ DropBox may notice a conflict if you edit your macros on both Macs simultaneously. ​ As a general rule this should not be an issue, though you may lose a change if you make changes on both Macs quickly (and note that quitting the Keyboard Maestro editor is considered a change). DropBox may keep backup versions, and Keyboard Maestro keeps backup revisions (in the [[Menus#​File_Revert_Macros|Revert Macros command]] in the [[Menus#​File|File menu]]), so you should be able to recover from any conflicts that happen. ​ DropBox may notice a conflict if you edit your macros on both Macs simultaneously. ​ As a general rule this should not be an issue, though you may lose a change if you make changes on both Macs quickly (and note that quitting the Keyboard Maestro editor is considered a change).
  
-Since your two Macs will likely not be identical, you may have to adjust your macros to work properly on both Macs.  Using the various [[Tokens]] and [[Calculations|functions]] can help.  For example the CODE{{{%MacUUID%}}} is a unique ID for each Mac, and can be used to test which Mac the macro is running on.  Other tokens, like the CODE{{{%SCREEN%}}} token can be used to ensure your macro behaves appropriately regardless of the details of the Mac.+Since your two Macs will likely not be identical, you may have to adjust your macros to work properly on both Macs.  Using the various [[Tokens]] and [[Calculations|functions]] can help.  For example the [[token:​MacUUID|%MacUUID%]] token is a unique ID for each Mac, and can be used to test which Mac the macro is running on.  Other functions, like the [[function:SCREEN|SCREEN]] function ​can be used to ensure your macro behaves appropriately regardless of the details of the Mac.
