All files duplicated in iCloud - is there any way to have just one copy of each file?

I sync my library over iCloud in order to use the Mac, iPad, and iPhone versions side-by-side. Recently, I noticed that my Mac has two copies of each PDF:

  • One in the MarginNote 3 folder in iCloud; and
  • One in a hidden folder: Library > Containers > QReader.MarginStudyMac > Data > Documents

As I have accumulated quite a lot of research material, my database adds up to about 12GB, so having a duplicate of each file amounts to 24GB. Would it be possible to have a single, central folder for all MarginNote 3 documents (ideally the iCloud folder for ease of access)?
