Editing shared file on Mac app?

Editing shared file on Mac app?

Hi all, 

 

A Word docx was shared with me. I can open it without issue on Word online if I navigate to it via the dropbox website. However, the file does not appear in my dropbox folder in Finder, so I cannot open the docx to edit in Word. The file *does* appear as having been shared with me when I click the dropbox icon on my desktop menu bar. There are no error messages anywhere. My question is: how do I get this shared file to show up in Finder so that I can edit it on Word? Thank you for any help you can offer!

Sounds like you have been sent a shared link rather than a shared folder. Check and get that updated from the sender 🙂
