Dropbox not adding a place to MS Project 2016, despite being part of MS Office!

Dropbox not adding a place to MS Project 2016, despite being part of MS Office!

Hi all, Dropbox has a preference for "adding a place" to MS office backstage via an add-in: 

 

DB preference paneDB preference pane

Only this does not work for MS Project 2016, which is technically part of MS Office: 

 

Places in MS ProjectPlaces in MS Project

Places in MS PowerpointPlaces in MS PowerpointI

 

Is there anyway possible to get this add-in to work with MS Project 2016? Desperate to have this feature there 🙂 Thx!!! 

Jigs

As per https://www.dropbox.com/help/business/adding-place-microsoft-office I'm afraid it only works on the main 3 apps (Word, Excel and PowerPoint)

I'm not aware of any, no. In fact I've never ever even seen it requested.

It also does not appear for MS Visio either, and I suspect not for the rest of the suite. A bit misleading to label the option as an MS Office add-in when it only appears in maybe 60% of the apps. But regardelss of the labeling, I guess there is no way to edit this to work, as opening in Resource Hacker shows nothing configurable in the .dll. Oh well...
