Dropbox integration

Since upgrading to the latest version (8.0, build 1859), Dropbox is no longer linked in the same way. Specifically, when I right-click on a file in Path Finder, I no longer get an option to copy the Dropbox link - something that's essential to use Dropbox within Path Finder. I've unlinked and relinked my Dropbox account. What do I need to do in order to restore this functionality?

    Hi Brad,

    We will investigate available APIs for Dropbox and possibilities to integrate them into PathFinder, but that will take some time.
    Also, it's rather expected we wouldn't be able to achieve full functionality like working with the native application, as APIs these companies provide don't offer the full functionality of native applications.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,

    I just installed your new update for version 8. It did nothing to fix this
    problem. I'm attaching a screen shot that might help point you in the right
    direction. On the left, you'll see the listing for the "Screenshots" folder
    in Dropbox, as viewed in Path Finder. In the center is the same folder,
    viewed from a Finder window, and on the right is a web browser view of the
    folder in Dropbox. As you can see, while the web and Finder views are
    consistent, the Path Finder view is showing old, previously deleted files,
    AND NONE OF THE NEW ONES, SINCE 2016. I'm not sure where it's getting that
    list, or how its doing it. But it's pretty useless a tool when it doesn't
    show the actual contents of a folder.

    Is there some way to force a refresh? I've already tried deleting the
    Dropbox link in Path Finder and then relinking the account. No joy.

    Here's another view of the problem...my Path Finder "Dropbox" folder is not sync'd with the REAL Dropbox folder. If I open a web browser version of Dropbox, I see all sorts of recent folders. I see exactly the same folders/files in Finder. But when I look at the same Dropbox account in Path Finder, I don't see any of the latest folders or files. I'm unclear on how this could have worked in version 7, and is now, suddenly, broken in version 8.
