Hi all, this is a niche issue and probably not Dropbox's "fault", but thought I'd ask here just in case.
Since I upgraded to the latest version of Dropbox for Mac (which moved the folder location, etc.), Logic Pro X projects stored in Dropbox no longer show up in File > Open Recent or in the Recent tab of Logic's startup window.
The same thing was already happening with Google Drive for Desktop, so I would guess it's a general issue with the File Provider API. However, projects stored in iCloud Drive do show up in Recent.
Other Apple apps (TextEdit, Pages) will show files from Dropbox in the Open Recent menu. (And Dropbox-stored Logic projects do show up in Recent Items under the top-left Apple menu.)
Making the folders available offline doesn't help.
Running Logic 10.7.6 in Ventura 13.1 on an M1 MacBook Pro.
Hi @misterjackpots, thanks for posting here!
Have you perhaps tried to re-connect Dropbox with Logic Pro X? Since the local Dropbox folder was moved after the Mac update, this step may fix the issue.
Let me know if this helps.
Hi Nancy, I don't recall ever having to connect Logic to Dropbox before; I just open project files from Dropbox as I would from any other folder. What does re-connecting mean in this case?
As it appears to be related to Logic Pro itself not detecting the recent file, it might be worth contacting them for support on this matter.
I've had the same problem ever since moving to a Mac Studio with Monterey. I've trashed Preferences and all the library files, I've done a complete re-install...no joy.
The Recents/file history work just fine for local files, and even files on external drives. But not DropBox files...even if they're Offline-Available.
Hey @F Stuart L., sorry to jump in here, but if you're still having issues with this, may we reach out via email to investigate further?
