Do you SYNCHRONIZE keepass kdbx files between Windows & Android?

It seems there are two completely different tasks inside KEEPASS:
1. Synchronization (this does not work the way I thought it worked)
2. Import (this seems to replace the entire file, I think)

I'm still formalizing my strategy for keeping my personal data off the net,
where passwords are good since Keepass works on all platforms.

Mainly (but not always), I edit on the desktop (using a keyboard),
but _sometimes_ I find myself, on the road, adding a password on the phone.

Up until now, I've been using "IMPORT" where the general use model was:
a. Edit the "master" passwd file on the Windows desktop
b. Import that "master" desktop passwd file en masse into Android

But recently, I added a passwd on the mobile device, and then had to get
that back into the desktop master passwd kdbx database.

But when I tried to synchronize the mobile device kdbx into the Wineows,
desktop, the desktop Keepass didn't take anything from the phone.
o How do you successfully import & merge & overwrite multiple keepass.kdbx files between Windows & Android?

So how do we best synchronize data that was added on the phone?

Notice there is a SYNCHRONIZE command on the Windows KeePass:
o KeePass Password Safe, Windows 10, version 2.39.1)

But there is not a synchronize command I can find on the Android Keepass.
o Keepass2Android

Given that oddity, I think this will be my MAIN use model, moving forward:
a. Add/change password on the "master" desktop kdbx
b. On Android - IMPORT that "master" desktop kdbx

Once in a while, this will be my SECONDARY use model, moving forward:
a. Continue to add/change passwds on the "master" desktop kdbx
b. Once in a while, add/change passwds on the "mobile" kdbx
c. On the desktop, SYNCHRONIZE the "mobile" kdbx with the "master" kdbx

The main caveat to that synchronize step is that I have to ensure that the
DATE STAMP on the mobile kdbx is at a LATER date than the date stamp of the
"master" kdbx, which I can do with a simple "touch" command process on the

Seems silly to have to change the date stamp - but the synchronize on the
desktop did not work until I changed the date stamp on the mobile kdbx.

Anyone else experience this problem with the Windows SYNCHRONIZE command
when they added a password on the mobile device but when they ALSO had
added passwds on the Windows device such that the Windows datestamp was
NEWER than the Android datestamp?

What is this keepass kdbx? I always SYNCHRONIZE my big cock when I see
a nice image of a naked woman. I can also shuv it in to your mouth if
you want to take its temperature.
