Issue with adding captions to files

When typing in captions for files on Dropbox paper (in Chrome Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit) on an

iMac with macOS Sierra version 10.12.5 (16F73)) I have found it be extremely finicking. I might type one or two letters and then suddenly the cursor will jump out of the caption box or a new tab will open. Then you have to open the caption again and carefully start typing again. I'm not sure what is going on, I'm pretty careful to only use the spacebar and letter keys when typing in captions.

Issue with tabs when browser window is compressed

When using Dropbox paper in Chrome Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit) on an

iMac with macOS Sierra version 10.12.5 (16F73) the tabs will overlap with the folders/files if the browser window is compressed. See attached picture.

Re: Issue with adding captions to files

Hello @bdm56,

 

I tried to replicate this on the exact system setup but this doesn't happen to me or my team. Can you try this again using an incognito tab in Chrome and check if it keeps happening? It could be a browser extension or pluggin causing this and will help us isolate the issue, thanks!

Re: Issue with adding captions to files

Hello @Zed wow that was a very fast reply, thanks! It doesn't seem to be an issue in Incognito Mode.

 

I can see the following extensions/plugins:

- Cloudy Calculator version 6.1.6

- Dropbox for Gmail version 1.1.5

- uBlock version 1.12.4

- Block Site version 3.1.11

- Google Docs version 0.9

- Google Docs offline version 1.4

- Google Sheets version 1.1

- Google Slides version 0.9

 

I tried disabling all of these (and one at a time) but the issue remains. Perhaps I am missing one.
