Mobile app "edit mode" by default, auto show/hide keyboard

Needing to press “edit” seems unnecessary, no such requirement exists on web based version, or on other note taking apps such as iOS notes app. Creates unnecessary friction in using the app.

 

Related to this, is that it would be better if keyboard and toolbar had a quick way to minimize/expand by clicking or dragging somewhere at bottom of page, or doing what iOS notes app does, tapping somewhere in the note activates cursor and brings up keyboard. Small scroll movements keeps keyboard up, but large scroll down retracts the keyboard.

Regarding editing - you can also double-tap (at least in IOS) to edit a document.

 

Easier than having to find the edit button and tapping it. My opinion.

@gbrown12 Thank you! I'd never realized this... likely because it's different design language from the rest of iOS. It had literally never occured to me to double tap. 

 

For dropbox developers: Apple's Human Interface Guidelines state a double tap "zooms in and centers content or image"

Final question, once you're in edit mode, is there any functional difference from when you're not in edit mode? You can still hide the keyboard in edit mode. But you have to click "Done" before the controls to go back to main menu appear. Why?!
