Opening doc file from Dropbox

Postby agprysw » Sun Jul 02, 2017 4:38 pm

I have been accustomed to prepare word files in the full, paid-for, version of Textmaker and then save them to Dropbox. In a meeting I would set up my phone with a folding blue-tooth keyboard and open the prepared file straight from the 'recent files' zone in dopbox. I could then use CTL-S at regular intervals. This was very efficient. I have now upgraded phones so that I have gone from KitKat to Nougat (7.0) and this no longer works, since the file identity is now lost on opening. I can work round this by opening the file direct from Textmaker but this involves a deal of navigation up and down the file tree. Is there any chance of restoring the original functionality?

Are you opening the files directly from the Dropbox app? This is not supported.

Yes. It worked under KitKat. Perhaps it would be a good enhancement?
