Maybe I have completely missed this, but looking for the following:

In DropBox via Finder I get this contextual menu, if I select a file. Can this behavior be replicated in PathFinder?

I also have two DropBox accounts, Personal and Work. Can it be achieved with both accounts?

    So , this is strange. No answer from the Dev.

    I thought it was some dumb, obvious thing I missed.

    You may link Dropbox to Path Finder in Path Fidner -> Preferences -> Features tab -> Dropbox

    Thank you.

    However, the behavior I showed above in the screenshot is NOT available.

    Additionally, the second part of my question remains unanswered:
    "also have two DropBox accounts, Personal and Work. Can it be achieved with both accounts?"

    Hi Jerry,

    As you can read in our Knowledge Base article (http://support.cocoatech.com/kb/features-and-development/dropbox-in...), once linked to a Dropbox account, Path Finder can execute Dropbox related functions without Dropbox.app running, but integration is still dependable to Dropbox.app in a way that Path Finder can be linked ONLY to the account to which Dropbox.app is linked.
    In other words, when linking Path Finder to your Dropbox account, you have to choose the same account you've chosen in the Dropbox.app, because Path Finder uses information stored in Dropbox.app configuration files.

    I just want to point out we're trying to make Path Finder working with multiple Dropbox accounts, but it's not easy at all.
    Even what we have now is partially based on reverse engineering of Dropbox.app configuration files.
    We asked Dropbox guys for support (not only for multiple Dropbox account issue, but for Dropbox integration in general) many times, but they apparently decided to ignore us. We're sorry we can't do more about this issue at the moment.

    Best Regards,
