iOS Mellel and Dropbox?

Postby austino » Mon May 01, 2017 5:22 pm


Has anyone gotten the iOS version of Mellel to work with dropbox? I have the dropbox app installed on my IPad, but when I open Mellel and click on the "new document" icon, I don't have any option to download from Dropbox, even though the manual seems to imply that I should. Instead, I just have options fro "new document" and "icloud drive."

No, Mellel for iOS doesn't integrate with Dropbox. Precisely why was explained to me a while back during the beta period, thus:

For some unfathomed reason Dropbox (and apparently google drive) do not provide a full storage provider service to other apps. (The same odd behaviour is exhibited with Pages and other apps too). […] I was able to make it work with Box. I'm guessing both google drive and DropBox will provide this eventually.

I don't know why Dropbox is an option for nearly every other similar 3rd-party app, but not Mellel. But there you go.

As far as I can tell, Mellel for iOS should work with Dropbox. I do not have an iPad so I can not try to see if this is the case or not. According to the information at the iTunes website, you should be able to both save and open your documents to and from Dropbox:

iCloud: Turn on iCloud to make your documents automatically available on your Mac:
• Save your documents to iCloud Drive, DropBox, Box, etc. from your iPad or your Mac...
• ... And easily open them from iCloud Drive, DropBox, Box, etc. on your Mac or your iPad
• Save files as PDF from Mellel for iPad
• Send your documents via eMail anywhere
