Highlighted - some tweaks

Collaborator | Level 9

Because I use a dropbox constantly, there are still small elements that can be fine-tuned. Here's a quick list:
1. Selecting files by clicking and dragging the cursor.
2. Faster loading of pages between folders - when the Internet speed drops, you can wait unnecessarily long for the folder you visited recently.
3. The left bar needs huge modifications:
3A. It is very nice, minimalistic and absolutely unnecessary. It contains unnecessarily complicated menu structures that appear when you click on the link. You could not move the menu to the top bar and get rid of this bar?
3B. It could possibly have folders and files marked with an asterisk, as is the case with the new dektop application.
3C. If the user does not have a second account pinned - there is no need for the switching icon to be visible.
3D. If the strip would have to remain, let it disappear while shrinking the window.
3E. The main menu page has a different font than inside files or paper.
3F. Possibly transferring and joining both side straps into one common.
4. Design in line with the new visual identity of the company.
5. Todo and timeline todo inside the main page arranged in a more readable way.
5A. Timeline todo could only show the bars assigned to the user in the form of a weekly task calendar. In the same view icons from simple todo lists.
6. Right click of the mouse shows the contents of the additional menu from the side button with three dots.
7. Quick access to gmail files on the main page.
8. I am asking for the option to disable Dropbox Business ads on every page while browsing the folders.
Best regards! Dominik
