Hello, i would like to use my dropbox mainly on my ipad to highlight the words in pdf and word files. Is it possible with the basic offer or is it available with an offer like dropbox plus or business ? I didn't find myself on my ipad or on the forum and google. Thank you in advance

Hello @F0xN7!

Thanks for posting your question. 

On the Dropbox mobile app (and iPad) the files edited require a third party app installed. In your case Word for mobile and a pdf reader. 

You will find the options to highlight in these third party apps. 

Get back to me with any more questions you might have. Thanks!
