Lightroom/Revel: Syncing Revel online account with multiple Lightroom libraries using LR plugin.

I sink my paid Adobe Revel account with the Revel Lightroom plugin. I also have several Lightroom libraries. I sink my Revel plugin from Publish Services in one library with my online Revel account. Why can't I download and sink my online revel account when I switch to my other Lightroom library? I should be able, I think, to sink both LR libraries with the same Adobe Revel online account. Please advise.
Thanks, Howard

At this time, the Revel Lightroom plugin only knows about images going from Lightroom to Revel, for the specific catalog you are in. It does not sync images from Revel to Lightroom.

At this time, Revel and Lightroom customers are wondering why not. This is a bug that needs to be fixed from our perspective.

At least a "Go to web" option until it gets fixed properly. If Revel can detect the names of my Albums then why not at least a link to the album from within LR5.

I completely agree. When I purchased an annual subscription to Revel, I expected way more than what I am getting. Ideally, if you are running Lightroom and Revel, there should be a way to mirror the two. Revel is promoted as a way to store photos online and to make sharing easier... Why doesn't Adobe see opportunity! Customer satisfaction, revenue (paid subscriptions), Repeat business (what customer is going to switch once they have all their photos on lightroom/revel), etc.
