Apps and Installations

I followed your original instructions with the latest Apple Silicon beta 149.3.4541, and so far so good...Dropbox icons are showing, as is the Dropbox context menu, and all folders are syncing in Offline-Only mode. Not sure what is different, this time around, but I am hopeful that this complete re-install from scratch might do the trick.
Syncing appears to have finished (of all the empty folders only, mind you), but just like the first time around that I tried this, it is hung up on “Syncing…”, but I have a feeling that this is a condition that we can figure out how to recover from, where the other situation of no icons and no context menu items was much more dire.
Whaddayaknow!? Syncing is finished, including two project folders that I set to be downloaded Offline, and they even show green checkmarks! After days of work on this, I may actually be back in bizness 😄
Thanks for your help!
Glad to hear this, Till! And relieved that your experience (hopefully) didn’t indicate further problems with the Apple Silicon beta. I’m guessing something simply went awry with your previous installation; I’m glad you had the fortitude to give a full reinstall One More Try.
Good news about the green checkmarks! I haven’t gotten the courage to rejoin the beta program (still on 148.4.4519) so hopefully will be seeing them myself in a forthcoming public release.
I believe you'd actually get downgraded to a stable release if you opted out. If I were in your shoes and the beta were working for me, I'd just stick with it. It seems the developers are finally getting their sh*t together re Apple Silicon.
