Dropbox allows you to access your documents via the web and on PCs etc., and doesn’t require iA Writer to be installed. This is great for sharing documents to friends and colleagues.
1.3.1. OS X
iA Writer previously used the Dropbox Sync API but this has been deprecated by Dropbox. As of version 3.1 you can link iA Writer directly to your local Dropbox folder.
- In the menu, select
- Click the
+button to a folder to your Library
- In the dialog that opens choose your Dropbox folder and then click
Add Library Location
If you do not have a Dropbox account, please visit Dropbox.com. You can create an account here and download the client application for Mac.
Moving Documents on Mac
A document can be moved by clicking and dragging it to another folder within the Document List.
To use Dropbox with iA Writer for iOS, first link your Dropbox account:
- In the Library, tap the
Add Dropbox account, then
Moving Documents on iOS
Documents can be moved in the same manner as iCloud. Swipe a file in the Document List to the left, tap
Move, then choose the destination folder.
If there’s a conflict from editing the same Dropbox document on two different devices, Writer will ask you to choose one or more versions to keep.
Dropbox documents can be accessed at dropbox.com, which also keeps past versions.
