Android Dropbox app won't recognize my edit to local "offline" files thus not syncing

Android Dropbox app won't recognize my edit to local "offline" files thus not syncing

New member | Level 2

Hi, I have Dropbox installed on my android phone.

I am using "termux" and change my local "offline-files" successfully. When I was using `ls -a -l` inside "termux", I can see that "offline-files" was altered. But when I opened my Dropbox app, clicked offline, I can see that Dropbox won't recoginze my aforementioned edit, result in not syncing that file.

Any thought will be apreciated.

In my case the application show the change, but refuse to sync them. Seems like a bug in the Android mobile application.
