Upload non-pictures with Android app

When I tap the UPLOAD button on my DropBox app on Samsung Galaxy phone I get SELECT PICTURES TO UPLOAD.

 

I don't want to upload pictures. I need to upload documents (.txt, .pdf, etc.)

 

(I can't believe nobody at Dropbox has thought of this! I mean, really?!)

Dear Walter,

 

Thank you, though for the convenience of subscribers finding the same problem, I would modify your advice as follows:

Do not tap the UPLOAD button. It only uploads photos. Tap the floating plus and then tap CREATE OR UPLOAD FILES.

Hey @Josty, thanks for posting on our Community and happy Monday!

 

There should be an option to upload text and other files if you scroll a bit further down on your screen when tapping the (+) button to upload your files.

 

Let me know if this helps!
